What a great week. Dennis Kucinich introduced a bill of impeachment against the pretender in the White House and the Supreme Court recognized the strength of the U.S. Constitution (even if Scalia and the Chief Justice are embarrassments on the point.) One of my personal heroes, Vincent Bugliosi, has a new book out called The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder (of the more than 4000 U.S. troops who have died in Iraq.) Keith Olbermann called John McCain out for his callous disregard of the plight of our troops while the rest of the media lets it slip on by.
On the other hand, John McCain said he'd have Dick Cheney among his advisors when he gets to the White House. That's enough reason to vote against him, if there weren't plenty of others. Calling his own wife as Anglo-Saxon expletive and divorcing his crippled first wife are two more (although Republicans seem to have a pattern of divorcing spouses with health problems--can you spell Newt Gingrich?)
And Big Brown's trainer is calling pilot error the reason for the horse's poor showing at the Belmont. Ain't that just to be expected.
