Hey, Folks. Away From Computers Till Monday.
I've got just a couple minutes until I have to head out again. Difficult to explain here, and not really that interesting. But I'll be back up and blogging next Monday.
Hopefully, by then, an armed mob with torches and pitchforks will have arrested the Vice President and carted him off to Congress to be impeached and tried by force. It could happen, but probably not. Dick's attempt to establish himself as the fourth branch of government has already been largely successful, simply through the lack of opposition. Nothing has been done about it except for pundits and Jon Stewart to say, "Hey, he can't do that!"
But we all should have learned by now that Dick does whatever the hell he wants, whenever the hell he wants, however the hell he wants, consequences and public disapproval be damned. He's a thug, and he should have been curbed a long time ago. It's already clear that, when it suits his purpose, he claims executive privilege and now that it no longer suits his purpose, he's suddenly a member of the lesgislative branch. Of course, the real reason he doesn't want those records turned over, as the law dictates, is that they'd reveal that he's been the guy behind all these blatantly illegal mandates all along — any idiot who's been paying attention knows his office was behind the outing of Valerie Plame, the secret prisons, the military tribunals, the whole Unconstitutional Enchilada.
Mmmmmm.... unconstitutional enchilada ... the forbidden fruit
Anyway, Vice President C. Montgomery Burns, or whatever the fuck his name is, should have been treated like the war criminal he is a long time ago. If this new round of toxic revelations has any weight, maybe he will be. In an equitable world, he'd already be in chains before The Hague.
OK, see you next week.
