Friday, June 20th at 10AM…..

……. Will that date finally mark the beginning of the end for the Bush crime family?

Yesterday, June 9th, 2008, Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers officially invited the former white house press secretary, Mr. Scott McClellan, to testify under oath on Friday, June 20th at 10AM.

McClellan’s testimony will will add power to the work of democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who once again defied his party leadership yesterday and called for the impeachment of U.S. President George W. Bush for his role in launching the Iraq war. The Ohio representative described his proposed 35 articles of impeachment against Bush on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Kucinich accused Bush of executing a “calculated and wide-ranging strategy” to lie to the American citizens and our Congress, which lead many of them to believe that Iraq was a great threat to America. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D*, California) has several times said she opposes any attempt to impeach the Republican president, who will leave office next January, saying such action was “off the table”.

Exactly what dirt the republicans have on Pelosi is not publicly known at this time, but it must be some really good “under the table” stuff to make her work to protect that bunch of lying weasels. 

Kucinich, an outspoken Iraq war critic who has consistently voted against funding the war, and led anti-war efforts in Congress, offered a resolution to impeach Vice president Dick Cheney in April 2007. That also failed to work, leaving Cheney free to continue his hunting trips.

Many Americans have accused the Bush administration of providing misleading information before the 2003 Iraq invasion, as well as violating the rights of U.S. citizens with its ongoing warrantless surveillance program.

The White House of course denies the charges, much in the same way they refused to acknowledge the six meetings with lobbyist Jack “Meihoff” Abramoff.  Bush, for some reason can’t remember those meetings.

Who could have predicted that?

It’s going deep, deep into left field….

Imagine that there’s a political party with some, um……, let’s say previous “expertise” in gaming the voting procedures and electronic machines, that is they’ve developed ways of making strange things happen between the entry poll and the final voting results.

Now further imagine that someone in said party realizes that by setting up such a game in the primary of another party, the party of the first part (sorry, couldn’t resist that one) could manipulate the competition into voting in an unexpected straw dog that come real election time would be vulnerable to any number of dirty tricks. Perhaps they would do this in two different primary elections with two very different prospects to thereby create a small group of targets for later work and divide up votes that could go to, ummmm……..

……oh, let’s just say a much more worthy option.

Meanwhile, back in the trenches……

Now, imagine just for this exercise, a black guy and a white woman.

Imagination not working? O.K., try these ones.

I’m just saying, Ms. Clinton or Mr. Obama might have the “honor” to be the first Democratic presidential candidate to have hoisted up on the big ballot by members of the Republican party.

This isn’t really such a new idea, as long ago I tried to drum up votes for one J. Danforth (Danny Boy) Quayle, Quayl, whatever that Hoosier village idiot’s name was. I was sure that if he somehow got on the ballot, even Republicans wouldn’t stoop so low as to vote for some goy, er… some guy who, if elected, would have required the government to purchase a short yellow version of Air Force One, if you get my drift.

Son_of_a_bitch if “W” didn’t prove me wrong!

Oh, what to do? Well, for starts……..
