Size 10, Bush cracked…how soon has he forgotten that when Saddam’s statue was toppled, the Iraqis came up and beat on it with their shoes? This is the way of democracy, he said. If so, why have the Iraqis turned al-Zeidi over to the military police for interrogation? Would it hurt Bush to say to al-Maliki–hey, don’t torture him, it’ll look bad for me and worse for you? Well, yes, it would, because Bush is a sick man. It took an Iraqi to do what many Americans felt like doing, what Nancy Pelosi ought to have done by initiating impeachment, telling Bush to his face just how low a scumbag he really is. It’s the best Christmas present the world has gotten in years. Too bad the man who did it is going to suffer for the actions no one else had the balls to do.
Well, it’s official–calls for Obama’s impeachment have begun before he’s even spent a day in office. YOU HEAR THAT, NANCY PELOSI??? You didn’t want to be divisive? Well, here’s the people you didn’t want to drive away–the ones who are willing to drive away a validly elected President before he’s even had the chance to be corrupt or incompetent. The least you can say is these guys aren’t racially prejudiced–they hate anyone who isn’t Republican regardless of race, color, creed, gender, sexual preference, or … well I can’t say national origin because that’ll probably be their argument: that Obama wasn’t legally elected because his original Hawaii birth certificate is missing and he can’t PROVE he’s a natural-born American citizen (despite having an American citizen mother). At least they aren’t calling for his assassination (or “merely” running pools for one). Quite frankly, with all the death threats he’s already received, I wouldn’t take bets against some gun-toting Mer’can patriot taking a potshot at the “Communist Nazi Muslim N-word whose minister hates America.” It may turn out that the one thing the Bush Leaguer did right was to allow his paranoia to demand increased security for the president…not for him, but for his successor. Some of us are going to be living on pins and needles for the next 4 years.
Yes, there was an option. DON’T PUSSY OUT! Don’t let the troops be held hostage to this man’s insane dream of being a GREAT President. Don’t let them be held hostage to the Republican strategy of holding out until a Democrat is elected so the loss will appear to be HIS/(Her?) fault. Don’t let the Neocon dream of runaway oil profits forever keep our troops in a losing situation. If he vetoes something, SEND IT BACK. BE JUST AS STUBBORN.
Have a safe, relaxing, funfilled Memorial Day. We’ll be back on Wednesday…
