My, what a surprise.

Never let it be said that George W. Bush cares about women and people of different sexual orientations. The little twerp is threatening to veto a new anti-hate crime bill, because it includes protection for women and gays. The Shrub has vetoed only two pieces of legislation in his entire tenure as dictator: a bill to fund stem cell research, and a bill funding his own war. Is it just me, or is a pattern now emerging?

Democrats will never get any of their legislation passed, unless they allow the GOP to completely gut it. And even if it survives the legislative process intact, such legislation will not survive a veto. So the Iraq war will go on, Bush will probably start a war with Iran, and the Democratic Congress won't be able to get anything done between now and January 2009--or afterward, for that matter.

It's time for Democrats to find their backbones and impeach George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. It's obvious that these two have committed high crimes, even treason, and as long as they hold the White House they will keep breaking the law and blocking the will of the American people. Dennis Kucinich's Articles of Impeachment against Cheney have already gained co-sponsors. There is no further excuse for Congress not doing its sworn duty.
