Baby Doc to Congress: Go Fuck Yourselves

Citing, of all things, "constitutional issues", Der Monkey Fuehrer is stonewalling on letting Executive Branch evil mastermind Karl Rove, along with "coconut" (i.e. brown on the outside, white on the inside) Alberto Gonzales and "best person qualified for the Supreme Court" Harriet Meyers, testify at the congressional probe into the Pearl Harbor Day firing of US Attorneys.

Yeah, him citing constitutional issues is like the Ku Klux Klan agitating for civil rights for African-Americans.

And isn't it odd that the entire rightwingnuttery supporting him on this stupid decision are the very same ones who were howling just a short ten years ago that Clinton HAD to testify under oath, the president is not above the law, etc etc.

What a bunch of fucking hypocrite assholes.

If they have nothing to hide, why not let Rove et al. testify under oath? If it's not under oath, it's not testimony -- it's just a conversation.

Remember back in the good ole days of the Nixon Administration, when Tricky Dick tried basically the same thing, invoking "executive privilege" to provoke a constitutional crisis?

It didn't work then, and we shouldn't let it work now.

Unfortunately, it's my prediction that when it comes down to it, the BFEE-dominated Supreme Court will rule in favor of Baby Doc and that will be the end of it.

But we have another option: Impeachment and removal from office. Please drop by Democrats.com and sign the petition, if you haven't already.

Coincidentally (or not) Democratic Congressman and presidential contender Dennis Kucinich is considering introducing articles of impeachment. If he does, let's be of one voice: Remove the corrupt and evil bastards from office.

Old Congressman Pete Stark…of 35 years plus in Congress is not only an atheist, but he is just an 'old fart' so to speak who wants to piss off the world. He rants and raves at his constituents and is not a nice guy…he's not a "poster child" that any organization would want to represent them…atheists or otherwise. Check out where he denigrated a constituent who just returned from an overseas deployment to Kosovo…the soldier wrote his congressman (Pete Stark) and got this angry insulting voicemail back. (See the link to the Fox News video below).

It's easy to cherry-pick incidents from any politician's political life and show that they have some deeper -- and more sinister -- meaning, but to me the telling point is that Pete Stark has been returned to congress by the people of his own district since 1972 when he was first elected.
Not a nice guy? Rants and raves at his constituents?
They why do they keep returning him to Washington?
Congressmen are elected to represent the people in their districts. Pete Stark must be doing something right.
