More Calls for Impeachment

W is off to the Middle East. He wants to “close the deal” on peace between Israel and Palestine and then plans to run around herding all his Arab ducks in a row and lined up against Iran.

Though he may not catch on when it happens, the shrub is in for a big disappointment. The Arab world, being no less astute than the rest of the world – with the exception of far too many Americans – recognizes W for the dangerously effective imbecile that he is. They also know that he is near the end of his reign and has no possibility of extending his power through a new administration elected as a follow-up to his.

So, rant or cajole though he might, W is going to find the Middle East unreceptive to his wishes to continue his old-school, divisive, hostile approach to maintaining America’s power base in that region.

Meanwhile, on the home front, another familiar voice has finally spoken out for impeachment. George Mc Govern’s article in the Sunday Washington Post was a clear and well written indictment of this administration.

Lee Iacocca, past Chrysler CEO and bail-out recipient, in his book Where Have All the Leaders Gone blasts BushCo from all angles but it boiled down to this single line . . . “our democracy is being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity”. Iacocca is also outraged by the inaction of the Congress the people elected to put a stop to all this.

People like these can say all they want, though, to no effect unless enough ordinary citizens get mad enough to demand Congressional action.
