Except. Except, I remember when the Republicans broke out the solemn machinery of impeachment over President Clinton's "perjury" (a perjury claim no prosecutor in his right mind would have pursued). On what planet do you impeach a President for lying about a blowjob, and commute the sentence of a political hack who lied in the investigation of the leaking of a CIA agent's identity?
I can't even write coherently about this. I feel so sad for my country. And so ashamed. Even if we turned around tomorrow, the damage the Bushies have done will dog us for genertions. But we're not going to turn around tomorrow. The 2006 elections showed that: As conspicuous a disaster Republican rule was by then, the Democrats still barely took a majority in Congress. Because roughly half of my fellow countrymen were still happy to vote for them. And I don't see that changing.
