A fun little article claiming that recent events show that the CIA is trying to trigger impeachment of Bush, Cheney, and possibly others in retribution for the Plame incident:

    Pleasant as the prospect might be, I would tend to take with a pinch of salt any opinion expressed in the same article as the following gem:

    Third clue: Tenet's resignation, which occurred at night, was the first "evening resignation" of a Cabinet-level official since October 1973 when Attorney General Elliott Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, resigned in protest of Richard Nixon's firing of Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. Many regard this as the watershed moment when the Nixon administration was doomed.

    (Do I have to point out that the author is succumbing to the classic conspiracy theorist's falacy of mistaking coincidences for correlation?)

      You're just saying that because they made you!

      The evening resignation is interesting to me because it indicates urgency at the end of a long workday-- he couldn't even wait until the next business day to resign.

      Conspiracy types notice a 2 and a 3, which may both be interesting digits to normal people. But then they add 2 and 3 to get 7, divide them to get a division by zero error, multiply them to get 16, and note how those results are all subject to the Law of Fives.

    Actually, what I find most depressing is how people are posting that article in their blogs like a sort of hopeful talisman they'll rub fervently and hope that someone, somewhere will do something.

    Maybe I should start trying to organize Bush impeachment marches or something.

    Personally, I think Dubya will not only be impeached, but tried and executed for treason. The buck stops with him, no matter how much he tries to deny it.

    His dad (the former director of the CIA) broke down in tears in a public speech a few months ago about what "those people" are doing to him. I hope Dubya and his family realize (before he's executed) that what happened is his responsibility and his only. If he can sincerely apologize and ask for mercy, maybe we the people will spare his life.

    If not, maybe the recent reports of him losing his head will become the literal truth in a year or two.

    • for that to happen he'll have to get re-elected first. and then it'll be Nixon all over again.

      i'm just happy it's looking like we're going to have minority/coalition government in canada soon, which you guys don't even have as a real possibility.
