OK... I know I recently placed a beeeee-utiful little banner in the corner of PTF, offering some subtle advice to Congress and our nation.
An Argument Against Impeachment
After a bit of thought, I'm not so sure that this would be the best idea.
Sure... the idea of a world without Preznit Bush seems like a beautiful dream, right? A beautiful, sunny, cloudless day with the sweetest breath of fresh air you've breathed in quite a while. A new morning in America, as it were. An especially wonderful thought as we approach the dreary days of February.
But think it through a bit, and take a look at the bigger picture.
If Bush is removed from office, the person to take his place is Dick Cheney. He is sworn into office, but under the pressure of the war, the economy, and the general mess of the State of the Union, he pulls a William Henry Harrison and dies in office.
Someone gives a call over to 235 Cannon and lets Denny Hastert know what's just happened. This, of course, is akin to John Goodman taking over the office in The West Wing.
Hastert resigns in utter humiliation under the weight of the news that he, in fact, was responsible for the illegitimate love child of Jack Abramoff.
Who's next in line? Well... let's see... does anyone have a copy of the Constitution? One that HASN'T been burned yet? Oh wait, I tend to remember that it's the President Pro Tempore of The Senate... you know, that guy that swore in New Jersey's new senator, Robert Menendez... Cheney was out of the country having his bionics oiled, and so the President Pro Tempore was responsible for the swearing in.... oh wait.... it's coming to me... no.... no...... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
SENTAOR TED STEVENS??? PRESIDENT STEVENS?!?!?!?
Senator Stevens, who promised that he was actually LEAVING the Senate after people didn't play nice with him, reappears instantaneously in the Oval Office, quickly appoints Lou Ferrigno as his Vice President, and begins a Federal Economic Stimulus Package consisting of building bridges from every major urban area in the United States directly to Ester, Alaska.
Wait... wait... wake up. It was all just a bad dream. Who's the President? George W. Bush? Damn.
But I guess it could be worse....
