Kvik! To ze bunker!

Dubya heads to the Fuehrerbunker beneath the rubble that once was his presidency as his generals flee to Argentina, leaving the 101st Fighting Keyboarders and assorted Kool-Aid Brigades to defend the capital. Unfortunately, Bush still has a V2 or two up his sleeve and can do some serious damage before the Allies finally roll into Berli...err, Washington.

White House Shifts Into Survival Mode

In a White House known for both defiance and optimism, yesterday's senior staff changes represent a frank acknowledgment of the trouble in which President Bush now finds himself. They are also a signal of how starkly Bush's second-term ambitions have shifted after a year of persistent problems at home and abroad.
