Steve Clemons over at The Washington Note informs us that National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft will rip through Bush’s hide in an upcoming New Yorker article.

Clemons quotes from a UPI story Old Bush vs. new:

The article also contains some critical comments on the handling of U.S. foreign policy by the current President Bush from his father, whose 1989-1993 presidency is hailed for deft management of the end of the Cold War, German unification, the first Gulf war and the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Scowcroft’s remarks follow on the heels of a scathing rebuke of the Bush administration this week by Larry Wilkerson who labeled the current atmosphere in Washington the result of the “Cheney-Rumsfeld cabal”.

Next week will likely be the worst week so far for this administration.

Here’s what’s on the radar screen:

* possible indictments in the investigation by Patrick Fitzgerald into the leak of Valerie Plame’s name.
* planned anti-war protests across the country the day after the US casualty rate reaches 2000.
* more developments, confusion and angst regarding the nomination of Harriet Miers to the US Supreme Court. (maybe she should give Bush a call to tell him he’s the “best president ever” to cheer him up a bit)
* the continuing scandals of Tom DeLay and Bill Frist.
* worst.poll.numbers.ever for Bush and Cheney.

more on the flip…

And, who knows what else?

So, all in all, I’d say that kicking off the week by getting his teeth kicked in by Scowcroft and elder Bush in public will pretty much set the tone for an exciting week for us at least.

Expect various and sudden terrorist threats to pop up on CNN during convenient moments for the Bush administration in order to blot out the pain of it all. Not that those guys actually feel pain…

And, don’t forget to stock up on popcorn this weekend! There may be a sudden shortage come Tuesday.
