Rejoice…

Scooter Libby found guilty on 4 out of 5 counts, of outing one of our agents.

Maybe there is hope for us, yet.

Sad show over the weekend, with the Bloody Sunday memorial activities. Separate churches, separate excuses and one-upmanship. The media covered it like it was a dog and pony show.

I would have had a lot more respect if Barak and Hilary had both done the whole day absolutely together, earnestly observing in memoriam, and not said a word about the campaign. But no -- who can afford to waste so much TV time?

Is there a link anywhere to this story. I would like to read about this.

There was no single story -- google on "Bloody Sunday Clintons Obama" and you ought to get an avalanche of commentary. This was the anniversary of a protest march that turned ugly during the civil rights era, and the two Dem candidates spoke at separate churches, supposedly to commemorate the event and talk about why the work isn't yet truly finished, but a lot of campaign rhetoric came out to advantage. Inappropriate right off the bat, I think. Obama was a little icky talking about why he, too, is an American black (there is some issue about whether he is really representative of the constituency, because of his unusual origins) -- the media covered it with dueling sound clips and other coverage as if it were an informal debate, and there was lots of discussion about who "won." Again -- it would have done wonders for the party's appearance and the tone of this whole election if they had suspended all campaigning and just gone to pay respects and support the equality issues together.

Libby convicted. The scapegoat is eaten by the lions. The REAL culprits get off free.

I totally agree maisky, but at least Libby is toe in the door, that can be squeezed. Let’s hope so.

At least we can count on Vermont getting the ball rolling...

http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/03/07/...mpeach-Bush.php



"CALAIS, Vermont: Packed into their 140-year-old Town Hall on a clear, frigid morning, the people of Calais, a town of 1,552 residents, took care of business Tuesday.

They elected Gus Seelig moderator for the annual Town Meeting. They talked about fire department contracts and the town highway fund, appropriated $2,500 (€1,910) for a town swimming program and boosted the property tax exemption for disabled veterans, all without much debate — and no rancor.

But when Article 23 came up, the mood changed. That was the one calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

Peering over the eyeglasses perched on the end of his nose, Seelig — anticipating an emotional debate — asked the crowd of about 125 people to keep it civil.

'We are not here to criticize each other,' he said. 'We're not going to attack our neighbors. They're still going to be our neighbors when we're done here today.' "

Senara, thank you for the ariticle. This is very much current news. The only posative thing that I can see about our continuing involvment in our illegal and immoral involvment in Iraq is that it will lead to deposing the Republicants from power for many years to come. As for Bush and Cheney, they belong in prison.

Yes, Senara, thanks. This was a very moving little feature on how the small pockets of real, ordinary people are thinking and reacting to real loss, not just spin -- too easy to lose sight of it, too easy.



On the brighter side -- this came to me today from a friend:

Subject: A Monument
Date: 7 March 2007

Dear friends:

I have the distinguished honor of being on the committee to raise
$5,000,000 for a monument to George W. Bush . We originally wanted to
put him on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for
two more faces.

We then decided to erect a statue of George W in the Washington, D.C. Hall Of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Richard Nixon, who never told the truth, since George could never tell the difference.

We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Republican of them all. He didn't know where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, destroyed the well-being of the majority of the population while he was there, and did it all on someone else's money.

Thank you.

George W. Bush Monument Committee

(so far we have collected $1.35)

Stoirmeil,

Thanks your friend for me, although funny. I’m afraid the question of where to put W’s monument, is a no win situation! Hey… How about a giant, “granite” head, in a cemetery some where?

Thanks,
JC
