12/20/2004: Dick Cheney's Holiday Spectacular, a stage show starring
The Billionaires for Bush


Shopper X desperately tries to find the hottest toy of the season at
All-Mart, when a holiday shopping brawl knocks her unconscious and
catapults her into DICK CHENEY'S HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR, a macabre, often
hilarious world of bling, billionaires, and holiday GREED-ings. The
Billionaires for Bush are about to show her the true meaning of the
holidays.

The Billionaires for Bush, lobbyists for the rich, the very rich, and
the very very rich are hosting DICK CHENEY'S HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR and
Party, December 20. They will be raising their martini glasses and
toasting Diebold, for delivering Ohio, and the Ghost of Christmas
Future, for revealing a conservatively compassionate vision of the
next four years.

The sparkling and irrepressible Billionaire Follies will remind you of
the true meaning of the holidays with hits such as "Rest Easy Wealthy
Gentlemen," "Prison Cells," "Georgie Baby," "We Three Kings of
Petroleum Are," and "Toys for the World (are made by kids)." The
fabulous stage show will also feature the 24-Karat Rockettes, Paul
Wolfowitz's new, improved version of the Chanukkah story, and a sneak
peek at the Billionaire Christmas Carol. Starring Fillmore Barrels,
Kiki Baxx, Noah Countability, Irma Giddins Cummin, Dr. DeBoeks, Diva
Denz, Owen D'WightHowse, Ivy League-Legacy, Ilya Lorditovaya, Olive
Oilfields, Frieda Rabieux, Fonda Sterling, Skip Tax, and Mimi
Knott-Yiu.

Holiday reminder

Darlings -

Some of my gentle readers have written to inquire whether we Billionaires will cease or political activism, now that our dear Dubya has been re-appointed.

Nothing could be further from the truth (well, except for anything that comes from the White House press secretary - but there's a good reason for that!).

We do have much for which we can be grateful, as we wealthy ever do. Our schmoozer-in-chief, Phil T Rich, said in our post-election press release, "If the next four years resemble the last four, we'll have two more wars, $2 trillion added to the deficit, no increase in the minimum wage, continuing increases in the middle-class tax burden, another million jobs outsourced, and our corporate ice sculptures will continue to urinate fine Russian vodka."

We have much to celebrate: and celebrate we did; on private islands, in gold-plated jets, lips locked to the naughty bits of ice sculptures in all the world's great cities. We live in interesting times indeed and have high hopes; but they will remain but hopes unless we keep out eyes on that platinum prize. We must remain ever-vigilant, lest our government begin to neglect the wealthiest one percent. We will have our work cut out for us, as we will face opposition in our struggle to eliminate the dynasty tax and "privatize" (read: eliminate) Social Security.

We will need your help now more than ever, Billionaires and Billionairesses. And now that I've sobered up from the post-election champagne and Percoset binge little Dick and I went on, I'm ready to put in my two billion again.

I'll be keeping you updated on this blog and on the soon-to-be-restructured B4B blog. For now, some holiday shopping tips.
