Why George will finish his term

Things in the Bush White House are taking on more and more Watergate-esque elements, what with the chief law-enforcement officer in the land looking more and more like a pathological liar, and his senior staff's fingerprints all over the outing of a CIA agent, and...well the list goes on and on.

Republicans in Congress are calling for Gonzales' head and saying the President is out of touch with Iraq.

With subpoenas to Karl Rove and Harriet Miers now a distinct possibility in the case of the eight fired US Attorneys, George is talking tough, claiming executive privilege. Haven't I seen this movie before? I think it's called All The President's Men.

This morning I read the word "impeachment" mentioned in the paper, in a story about Chuck Hagel no less.

As much as I'd love to see George get the kick in the ass he's needed for most of his adult life, impeachment ain't gonna happen.

In a word: Cheney.

As miserable a loser as Bush may be, for all his ignorant smugness, he's not the Prince of Fucking Evil that Dick Cheney is. That alone will probably save his nuts.

Remember this about Bush: intellectually lazy and stupid are not the same thing.

I have to agree with you on this one. Though just think of what would happen if Cheney's ticker gave out before the Republicans could get a vice president in place: President Pelosi.
