MONTPELIER, Vt. - President Bush may soon have a new reason to avoid left-leaning Vermont: In one town, activists want him subject to arrest for war crimes.What a great idea!! Lets hope the town council of Brattleboro follows through with their convictions and that they start a trend where all cities in the country except those in Texas of course, make it illegal for the Chimp and Grumpy to show up.
A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community
I can imagine it now. Helicopter One sets down in the town square and when the door opens and the Chimp steps out local constables rush the Secret Service, wrestle them to the ground and tie them off in plastic handcuffs. Then they focus their attention on Chimpy who is summarily slammed to the ground, his face pushed in the dirt just like his gestapo do to anti-war protesters. Using a provision of the oft-forgotten US Constitution, Chimpy is afforded a swift trial and then convicted. For punishment he is held in the local jail where two guys named Guido from Bayonne waterboard him. Waterboarding of course is not torture in the Bush dictionary so the Brothers Guido decide to give him some of his own medicine. After his punishment is meted out, Chimpy is sent to a romper room to play with his buddies Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Larry Craig, each of whom smell easy prey now that the exhausted Chimp has not been tortured. And as the Chimp is being waterboarded, the same is happening to Cheney. Only during his waterboarding his heart stents rust over and fail to work and, well, you know the rest.
Its unfortunate more American towns and cities aren't following Brattleboro's lead. Its too bad the United States Congress isn't either. After all, Nancy Pelosi, there is no place in the Constitution you conveniently brush aside, where it says that impeachment is discretionary. In fact, now that I think of it, it would be nice if San Francisco passed a law making it illegal for Pelosi to step foot in her District until she does her Constitutional requirements and impeaches Chimpy and Grumpy.
In the meantime lets all hope that Brattleboro does the right thing and makes it illegal for the Chimp and Cheney to even exist.
3,900 dead American kids in Iraqnam would certainly agree.
