What is it going to take to get impeachment back on the table?

Let's see - he has turned our nation into a laughing stock on the world stage, broken the military, started an illegal war, and bankrupted the treasury. Then there is the contempt for congress, the politicization of the justice department, and now he has audaciously flouted the rule of law and excused treason against our nation.

If I were Judge Walton, I would resign from the bench tomorrow (Bush will never successfully appoint anyone else to anything ever) and make a big god-damned deal out of why I was stepping down. Why do we need judges, or juries, or due process, anyway? Just let the decider decide everyones fate, based on their politics and their bank balance.

This is an affront to decency, to say the least. Was it enough?

This is what Nancy Pelosi had to say in the wake of Benedict Bush’s commutation of the traitor Libby:

"The President's commutation of Scooter Libby's prison sentence does not serve justice, condones criminal conduct, and is a betrayal of trust of the American people. The President said he would hold accountable anyone involved in the Valerie Plame leak case. By his action today, the President shows his word is not to be believed. He has abandoned all sense of fairness when it comes to justice, he has failed to uphold the rule of law, and he has failed to hold his Administration accountable."

So cowgirl up, Nancy. Locate your ovaries (or borrow mine) and push back. Impeach the mother fucker already. He has scuttled the ship of state and must be held accountable.

In closing, I refer Madam Speaker to the words of James Madison.

"If the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds to believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty..."
