So, GQ has drawn up articles of impeachment for Cheney. Very nicely done. But do you really think it's going to accomplish anything? Watching us "little people" attempt to influence politics in DC is a total laugh riot for me. Do you understand the way this system works yet, my friends? The Congresscritters in DC do not care about us. They do not care about our opinions. They do not give a damn about our values. They are NOT our "representatives" under any but the most academic definitions of the word. They are in this not for truth, or justice. They do not care about "doing the right thing." They are in it purely to do whatever will get them the most votes next election. And their actions (which speak far louder than any carefully crafted, bland, deliberately inoffensive words written by their staff speech writers) are showing that they believe their best chance of getting elected... is to sit on their thumbs and do nothing. Don't believe me? Remember that the great white liberal hope, Nancy Pelosi, she elected from San Francisco of all places, said: "Impeachment is off the table." Let me translate: "I'm going to sit here and quite purposefully and knowingly let Dubya keep sending our troops to be blown to bloody chunks in Iraq, even though he cannot now, and never has been able to, give us any credible reason why they should be dying there." How much more pathetically complicit do your politicians need to be, people?? Even Molly Ivins (RIP) said: "If Democrats in Washington haven't got enough sense to OWN the issue of political reform, I give up on them entirely."
( And then there's the other half, who are even worse...Collapse )
