This from the Huffington Post:
Chris Durang -- Will Bush Ever Get His Comeuppance?
Will this long presidency of George W. Bush ever be over?
Living through it is starting to seem like some ghastly, upsetting novel in which the hero is the country, and the president is this disturbing, pig-headed, oblivious villain who makes things worse and worse and worse.
And as with a fictional villain, I find I have a longing that he get his comeuppance -- that his villainy is codified and he's finally held accountable for what he's done.
But will that ever happen?
. . . . Lord, if ever a case called for impeachment, it is this one.
I missed the recent Bill Moyers Journal program that had a discussion of impeachment, but I found a transcript of it
The discussion of impeachment on the program is between Moyers and his guests John Nichols of The Nation and Bruce Fein, a former Justice Department official during the Reagan administration who drafted articles of impeachment against Bill Clinton. . . . Fein did so "because perjury is a legal crime. And Fein believed no one is above the law." He adds that Fein is a constitutional scholar, and has been affiliated with conservative think tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation and writes a weekly column for the Washington Times and Politico.com.
I, too, missed the original Journal and have piecing it together from various sources. The one cited by Durang is a good one.
And it's so refreshing to find a conservative who doesn't turn himself into a pretzel by condemning Clinton and absolving Bush simultaneously.
Perhaps we've found our Goldwater [who went to Nixon and told him he had to resign]. Of course, Nixon listened-- which I'm sure we can count on this president not to do.
