Yesterday, out of boredom (I'm off for Christmas break from my first job and my second job has slowed down considerably) I thought it would be fun to Google some words. Usually, I type in oxymorons, like Sexy Ann Coulter, or Naked Republicans. After going through all these, I thought I'd type in Bush and impeachment and I got 3,030,000 hits.
One can only suspect that the Republicans in Congress and the talking heads at Faux News are choking on their words as they called for the impeachment of Bill Clinton for lying about a blow job he received as part of a frivolous nuisance lawsuit brought on by the same people who were seeking to end frivolous lawsuits. The problem with the Republican party is they are steeped in layer upon layer of hypocrisy, like a stale birthday cake or a rotten onion.They all act as if they are above the law and every crime they commit they do so in the name of "national security". Dick Cheney's secret energy meetings? Can't tell you about those, it's "national security". Disclose the destinations that Dick Cheney flew to on the public's dime? can't do that, It's "national security". Never before has an administration invoked secrecy for all it's actions, leaving me to wonder what they are trying to hide.
Well, in the secret energy meetings Cheney had in the summer of 2001 documents released by a suit filed by Judicial Watch, they included maps of Iraqi oil fields. Why they had maps of oil fields of a country that posed no threat is a question we'll never get an answer to, or why hiding this from the public was a matter of "national security".
What we have now is a presidency that places itself above the law as it violates the constitution (viewed by the President as a "goddamned piece of paper"), while his party, whose members (Delay, Frist, Ney, etc.)are embroiled in ethical controversies that they would have run Democrats out of DC for committing. That's the very hypocrisy that defines the Republican party as the greater of two evils.It's no wonder that impeachment isn't on their minds, they're too busy trying to ave their own hides until they can hook up with a cushy corporate position to keep them in the lifestyle they've grown accustomed to at taxpayers expense.
