On the clown-in-chief

Dear Editor:What’s that scraping sound coming from garages all over America? It’s the frantic removal of Bush/Cheney ’04 bumper stickers as the Bush Kool-Aid wears off on the less-thinking half of our nation.As the Bush-failed-state of a presidency races to its richly deserved bottom, with the intelligent design of Iraq, Katrina, high petrol prices and flagrant crony capitalism, for (most) all to see. One ponders “what’s up” with the third who don’t see, and still support the pack of lies used for Iraq and the rest of the Bush agenda.The Bush true believers, at this point, can be categorized into three distinct groups: one, the ill-informed or “stuck on stupid”; two, “the too proud to admit they were fooled by a fool”; or three, of course, the lowest of the low, the war profiteers. If there’s any justice left in our (currently) short-circuited democracy, our ’06 election will be a referendum on Bush. With the straightforward question of “Do you, aspiring member of the people’s Congress, support the immediate withdrawal from Iraq and the impeachment and prosecution of Bush for high crimes and misdemeanors, under Article 2, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution?”Bush’s nomination of Harriet Miers gives clues to the answer our clown-in-chief would give to this question. The Supreme Court that appointed him, he would desperately hope would save him.Ben NewellAspen
