The Carlyle Group — happier than pigs in shit

This is from a few days ago, but it’s worth a post. It’s good to know that somebody’s better off thanks to our dirty little war with Iraq:

Bill Conway, Carlyle founder and chief investment officer, said conditions were ripe for Carlyle to realise some of its investments. “It’s the best 18 months we ever had,” Mr Conway said. “We made money and we made it fast.”

He must be so proud, and board members GHW Bush and James Baker are no doubt slurping champagne from one another’s slipper. Brilliant, that bush managed to actually pull off the world’s stupidest war and enrich his friends and family along the way. Yes, these are unique times in which we live.

Can we really endure four more years of this shit?

Speaking of pigs, you’re probably already aware of the Republicans’ unintentionally hilarious “Wolves” ad.

Which leads to the rather disturbing conclusion that to the Busheviks, we Americans are just like the Three Little Pigs. Or Little Red Riding Hood.

Vaaqra, go here for a good laugh. Unfortunately, the wolf commercial is very seductive and Americans who don’t follow the news as aggressively as we do may well get sucked in. Vintage Rove.

Well, to screw with your day, the Carlyle Group owns the Yellow Pages.

Enjoy that one the next time you look for a number.
