Impeach Cheney NOW!

Another missive from an activist friend:

My dear friend, and fellow citizens:

I read recently a comment posted on Crooks and Liars decrying the impeachment of Dick Cheney. The author of said post asserted that impeaching Cheney would make him a martyr, and that "this is what they want!" Setting aside for now the question of who comprises this undefined 'they,' consider this: this is a specious, vacuous argument, spun for us, I'm confident, by the Republicans themselves. "If we believe that impeachment will turn the nation against the Democrats, we won't impeach!" We The People have begun to amass our voices and our votes. We The People want impeachment. We The People MUST use impeachment to heal our great nation, and to restore ourselves in the eyes of the rest of the world.

As Teddy said, "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Two things: 1) this applies to all other elected offices, most particularly to the Vice-President's; and 2) Teddy was a Republican--a TRUE Republican.

Be steadfast in your bravery, my fellow activists!

Until next we meet, I remain

Your Humble Servant,
Ms. Silence B. Damned
