Impeaching Dopey and Darth

in response to this post, my dear friend kathleen writes:
Boy, I never thought I'd disagree with John Dean, but what kind of cockamamy message would it send to voters if we went after the small fry but let the big guys get away with murder?

Impeaching Dopey and Darth is not at all doing what they did to Clinton, not in the least. NeoNutzis impeached Clinton because they wanted to prevent him from accomplishing anything and to hobble the Democratic party, not because he had committed any impeachable offense. It was payback for Nixon, who did commit an impeachable offense.

Dopey and Darth should be impeached if voters are expected to respect the rule of law. Americans are not tired of impeachment. They were tired of Newt the Brewt and his bogus bullshit.

We are smart enough to tell the difference despite what so called pundits "think". To not impeach Dopey and Darth would be as bad a move for political reasons as impeaching Clinton was. Besides, for Dems to put aside their duty to impeach, in the hopes that they can get something accomplished is delusional. Dopey will veto whatever Dems want, but it will be too late to indict the bastard then. Reagan/Bush should have been impeached for Iran-Contra but weren't, so they lived to rear their ugly heads again.
anyone dare disagree with her?

i don't disagree in the least... unfortunately, the u.s. has established a long-term precedent for zero accountability with its elected leadership who use their license to engage in criminal acts that would send any lesser person to jail for life... breaking that cycle is WAY overdue...

Hard to disagree. Acutally, I've argued that the benefit from an impeachement would be more important and desirable from an international-relations standpoint than it would be domestically. But if investigations are done vigorously, doesn't that get the same information out there, without sucking the air out of D.C. for all of the time between now and 2008? Trash the "Bush Legacy" without making him a martyr? As well as making a record of everything which the D's tried to do, only to be (rather inevitably) thwarted? Campaign issues for 2008.

And, when speaking of the Bush veto's to come, shouldn't we refer to it as "breaking out the veto crayon"?

Kathleen is exactly on target. If you think the Bush, Jr. regime is bad, wait until the next GOP cabal takes power if Bush & Pals aren't impeached (and hopefully prosecuted). If the past 50 years are an indicator, they'll be back soon, claiming to be the party of law and order in the streets and family values at home--and every blithering idiot in the country will have forgotten the GOP is the party of dictatorship, debt and death, and will fall all over one another to rush out and vote these jackasses into office. I thought I'd seen the end of it so many times, but clearly there will never be an end to it.

Veto crayon, indeed. I can tell I'm with the right crowd here, huh?
