Looking on the sunny side, part XVIII

Mike Flugennock, eagle-eyed Code PInk watcher, passed this along:

CODEPINK: Women for Peace

Dear Friend,

CODEPINK activists have been steadily, faithfully, and creatively pressuring Congress to impeach the criminals in the White House, and we are starting to see results. Last week, at the Judiciary Committee hearing "Executive Power and its Constitutional Limitations," impeachment was referenced dozens of times.

In her first days in power, Nancy Pelosi famously announced that impeachment was off the table, but on the popular television show The View (http://www.watchingtheview.com/nancy-pelosi-on-the-view-july-28th-video/) this past Tuesday, she admitted that she would hold impeachment hearings if someone could prove that Bush committed a crime (http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/taxonomy/term/17). We hope she watched last week as Dennis Kucinich (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRAcenaTVkQ), Liz Holtzman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dohgkV53tBQ), and Vincent Bugliosi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDAFozFn4kU) passionately enumerated Bush's impeachable offenses at a Judiciary Committee hearing. Be sure to watch their stirring testimony -- it will inspire and galvanize you...

Mike comments:
Galvanize me? Do I look like a goddamn' garbage can to these doorknobs?

Besides, the idea of Dennis Kucinich "galvanizing" anyone just makes me want to... have a few more bong hits.

The thing that amused me, in a way, was code-pink's belief that "references" -- dozens of 'em! -- constituted a victory.

One makes do with what one has, I suppose.

Nicholas Hart:

Margaret Kimberley at Black Agenda Report has a nice piece entitled Obama Pardons Bush. If Obama or Congressional Democrats pursue any investigations it will be for political reasons, not because of high-minded ideals (ie: their credibility sinks so low they're forced to throw some of their colleagues to the sharks). The chance of that is pretty small though, because the Democrats are mixed up in the same corrupt system and take money from the same rats. And they certainly don't want to set a precedent that American Presidents can't lie us into a war.

got me dem Oedipus' eyes

University students in New Zealand offered a bounty to have US Secretary of State Rice arrested as a war criminal: http://www.indymedia.org/en/2008/07/910639.shtml

Maybe if we start raising funds here in the US, we can follow-up with bounties on other members of the Bush cabinet.

Whatever we have left over can be used for future fugitives from justice in the Obama administration.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
