A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Hang Down Your Head, Republican

The "One law for all" party, against affirmative action, against immigrants' rights, against the Equal Rights Amendment ... and against justice.

I could use examples like Jose Padilla--detained without trial in subhuman conditions for five years. I could use Maher Arar. But let's stick with a rich white person who comitted no crime more serious than lying to an FBI agent.

Martha Stewart lied to an FBI investigation concerning allegations of insider trading (i.e. the kind Bush Pére and any other oil millionaire got rich on). She served nine months in prison to serve as an example.

I. Scooter Liddy--sorry, Libby (why do White House criminals all have initials, then names?) lied to an investigation about issues of national security--sorry, in the Republican lexicon "Homeland Security", or possibly "Fatherland Safety." You know, that sacred cow no-one who's not a traitor, commie, dirty hippie, Islamist or homo would ever question?

Libby gets no jail time. And I'm offering $500 US at two to one that George Dubya gives him a pardon right before he oils his way out of the White House.

Unless he's impeached.

How the hell can Americans watch their country being stripped of it's dignity and moral authority, and made to dance a grotesque cabaret burleque for the benefit of these plutocratic cretins any longer?

How can the party of Lincoln stand by so smugly with blood dripping down its chin and say this marionette, this mountebank, this manqué is fit to lead?

How can the "law and order" party condone a president and vice president comitted to the wholesale dismantling of every stroke of justice that made and makes the concept of America so important and valid in the world?

As far as I'm concerned, there's not a damn bit of difference to the average citizen between Vladimir Putin and George W. Bush. Except that Vlad might be innocent of the crimes he's accused of.

Where are the Democrats' balls? Where is their fortitude? Where is the will to say "This can not stand"?

Impeach, dammit!

I'm so angry about this people will think I'm insane. Oh yeah, they already think I'm insane.

What? You mean you actually didn't see this coming? I thought it would happen long before now and that it might even not happen due to the long delay. It pays to have low friends in high places.

I honestly thought Bush might not be stupid enough to violate the 27% of the people he hasn't already pissed off.

Of course, raping a blind old lady is about par for the course for these bozos.

Impeach. Impeach. Im-bloody-peach.

Perhaps tomorrow Harry Reid will wake up and find his testicles.
