Expect a coup d'etat in the White House when crude hits $125 a barrel

Off the Wall Street, NYC - (Global Meltdown Mess): A Senate lynch mob will remove the Bush Administration in a matter of days "just as the price of crude hits $125 a barrel."

That is the verdict of the satirist founder of internet spread-betting site Aintgottaprayer who is ecstatically confident that the key global economic indicators currently going through the roof will see Bush and Cheney deposed in a pre-Thanksgiving coup d'etat.

"All the signs and portents are there," the betting site's PR said today.

"Take US banking giant ShittyGroup: a 57% balance sheet loss in the last quarter has seen their CEO booted out in disgrace.

"We can seen a dozen Triple A-rated US banks heading in the same direction.

"Today we've seen the dollar plummet with the UK pound trading at $2.10. The last time that happened was in 1981 when the Reagan Administration was being advised by Nancy's astrologer.

"In the London Bullion Market gold has soared to $850 an ounce its highest level since 1980 when frantic trading saw investors repelled at the prospect of a Reagan/Bush1 Dictatorship fellated by UK Prime Monster Margaret Thatcher.

"Stockpiling frenzy is rampant amid fears that all bullion prices will soon be quoted in sterling.

"And the $98-a-barrel price of crude will continue to soar unless some miracle - like a massive earthquake (sic!) underneath those secret Iranian nuclear facilities - bails out the Bushes.

"We can't see that happening.

"But we're confident the Senate will send in a posse to the West Wing soon as crude hits $125 a barrel.

"We advise all our clients to take advantage of some very attractive Aintgottaprayer spread prices in the coming days."
