Bob Mulholland Shows His Charming Personality

When people talk of the revived GOP in California, they give much of the credit to Arnold and the Lion's Share of the blame to Gray Davis. This condign in the case of Arnold but unfair to Governor Gray. No California Democrat has done more to make his party look like a gang of imperial stormtroopers than Political Consultant/Slimeball Extrodinaire Bob Mulholland.

His personality actually manages to be uglier than Susan Estrich's face. He's the caricature of a bad stereotype of a political operative. Not that I hold it against him or nothin'.

Today, he revealed his pleasantness when discussing the Vice Presidential prospects of Dick Cheney. What he lacks in intellect he makes up for with sheer nasty vindictiveness. His owner should have fed him an extra Milk Bone today to take out the extra agression. I'm not sure whether his disposition comes from sexual frustration or extensive inbreeding.

We're praying Cheney stays on the ticket," California Democratic Party spokesman Bob Mulholland said. "Cheney is an albatross around the neck of the president, so Democrats are supporting Cheney."

Mulholland noted that on Tuesday the Bush-Cheney campaign unveiled a new television ad featuring McCain.

"It wasn't featuring Cheney," Mulholland noted. "If Cheney were a plus for the ticket, they'd have him out there in that ad."

"I'm hoping it doesn't happen," Mulholland said of a Cheney exit. "We want Cheney so we can beat up on him for the next four months."

Mulholland said that one potentially troublesome story for Cheney that may get wider exposure in the next four months is the Securities and Exchange Commission's investigation of alleged payments of $180 million in bribes by several firms, including a subsidiary of Halliburton, to officials in Nigeria, in order to smooth construction of a liquefied natural gas complex off the Nigerian coast.

Some of the payments were allegedly made at the time Cheney was chief executive of Halliburton.

Halliburton spokeswoman Wendy Hall said, "We are working with officials in Europe and the United States as well as conducting our own investigation to determine the truth of these unproven assertions. We do not believe that the company has violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act," a U.S. law that prohibits payments of bribes by American firms to foreign officials.

The Bush-Cheney campaign did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the Nigeria allegation.

One potentially troublesome aspect for the Democrats, is that the California State Party not only lets Mulholland The Gimp out of the basement, they even allow him near live microphones. If we were any more unfair and obnoxious, the LA Times would hire him to write commentary.
