Smut & Politics

Hm…be upset about the fiction of James Webb, the Democratic challenger to Virginia Republican Senator George Allen’s seat, which supposedly demeans women, or be upset that Webb’s fiction is being taken for his personal treatment of women? Wait! Wait! I need to know whether Webb’s books support gay marriage before I can decide!

Here’s my overgeneralization of the politics of the moment:

Republican: Lots of conviction. Unable to grasp the principal that the ends don’t justify the means. Unable to cope with the fact that a lot of the problems we’re dealing with now come from the bed Regan made. How is it that trickle-down economics isn’t supposed to lead to immegration problems, overseas outsourcing of US jobs, and corporate corruption now?

Democrats: No conviction. All self-righteousness and no chutzpa to back it up. Impeach the bastard for or I won’t vote for you guys either. Get it? The Republicans tried to get Clinton out for lying about S-E-X. You can’t get your act together to even try to push Bush out of office for all the crap he’s pulled. Or even to stop a torture bill. O woe is me my butt!

Or maybe I’ll just quote John Grisham:

“This is a clear sign of a desperate campaign. … I seriously doubt George Allen is much of a reader, but if he would read more, maybe he would understand the difference between fiction and nonfiction.”

    Do-It-Yourself Impeachment, no joke.
    The Citizens’ movement!

    The day the nation demands impeachment is almost upon us. On Jan 3rd, sacks and sacks of mail will be sent to congress demanding impeachment via the House of Representative’s own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635).

    There’s a little known and rarely used clause of the “Jefferson Manual” in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.

    That’s where we come in. In addition to the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial. ImpeachforPeace.org, part of the movement to impeach the president, has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.

    STOP WAITING FOR YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO ACT FOR YOU.

    You can initiate the impeachment process yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information in the blanks (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.
