Someone Get An Ambulance From Bellevue To The New York Times Immediatley


I could be wrong, but it sounds like someone put a strong dose of LSD in the NY Times water cooler last night. Or maybe someone on the editorial staff is just honing his or her skills as a comedy writer and the bit they wrote accidentally wound up on this morning's editorial page. Whichever it is, Karl Rove has sent ye Old Gray Lady into an absolute tizzy. Writing about Karl Rove's role in the Don Siegelman persecution:
If these charges are true, they suggest that the justice system was turned into a partisan tool, and that Mr. Siegelman’s freedom may have been taken away because of his political allegiances.

What a suggestion! If the editorial writer wasn't tripping... or auditioning for a script writing job for The Office, The Daily Show or Lil' Bush, wonderers could be left wondering what rock he or she has been living under these last few years. Even the Times itself has mentioned the perversion of the justice system under the Bush Regime. In fact, just last weekend, David Igelsias was in their very own magazine section talkin' a little perversion with Deborah Solomon.

But even more bizarre than the Times urging Congress to get tough with Rove, was another even more ludicrous suggestion: "It is time for Michael Mukasey, the attorney general, to stand up for justice by enforcing Congress’s subpoenas." Michael Mukasey was hired to not stand up for justice. Michael Mukasey was hired by Bush-- with the active connivance of Chuck Schumer-- to see to it that there would be no real investigations of anything that could damage the Regime. Period. And he's been busy doing that ever since.

This, of course, goes way beyond the Siegelman case to the heart of darkness that is the Bush Regime, a darkness that neither Speaker Pelosi nor any of the insider powers who have been subverting the Constitution and the rule of law want to look at. Even Scott McClellan sees this more clearly than the congressional leadership and on Meet The Press yesterday he asserted that Bush should have fired Rove as soon as it was clear he was behind the outing-- a criminal act-- of Valerie Plame. McClellan: "I think the president should have stood by his word and that meant Karl should have left... I think the president should have stood by the word that we said, which was that if you were involved in this in any way, then you would no longer be in this administration. And Karl was involved in it." But Bush didn't. Pelsoi should have put impeachment back on the table.

Don't leave out that anti-American twat Dianne Feinstein.

As appealing as impeaching Bush; we are presented with the same unappealing scenario as when Congress impeached Andrew Johnson.

That is, a worse alternative who is next in line to the Presidency.

raf, of course we should impeach (and prosecute) both of them simultaneously.

I thought it was understood.
