Oops! Bushco Did It Again

Nearly every day now comes new information that could be used to impeach Bush and Cheney. The latest White House ploy to be uncovered is worthy of "Tricky Dick" Nixon: about two dozen presidential aides have long been using Republican Party e-mail accounts so that they can get around a law that requires preservation of presidential records.

What this means is that oops, some crucial White House e-mails about the ouster of several U.S. attorneys have been lost.

Time for Congress to get moving on this perfect reason to oust a dangerously incompetent and dishonest president and a seriously deranged and dishonest vice president. There is so much at stake, in the U.S. and worldwide, that we can't just watch the clock wind down on the Bush presidency.

That it's taken everyone so long to see all the nefarious things that Bushco has been up to has driven me batty since GWB first stole into office. That closed-door meeting with Big Oil, pretty much right after the swearing-in ceremony, had me worried. As a former Texan, though not one who lived in that state during Bush's governorship, I knew he was a good ol' boy up to no good. I've been sure all along that that meeting was when the groundwork was laid for the Iraq war and the theft of Americans' civil rights. I'm sure I'll be proved right someday, though I won't be happy about that. It just saddens me that so many Americans want to remain ignorant of the truth. So many people can't all be stupid. They just don't want to have to think. But I can't imagine living on mental autopilot like that.
