This is a good question

With his usual charm Dennis the Peasant asks a good question:

LaShawn Barber is calling for George Bush's impeachment.

[Not that anyone in a position to actually impeach George Bush gives a flying handshake, mind you.]

Why, you ask?

For not keeping all them nasty Brown Folks in Mesko.


Call a me spineless librul, but I can't fail to notice that we're well into George Bush's second term.

Or that the South o' the Border Situation hasn't really changed that much from the days of Clinton, or Daddy Bush, or Reagan, or Carter, or...

Which leads me to this painfully obvious question...

Why now?

War on Terror?? What's that?? We are too busy worrying about the invasion of the roofers, nannies and fruit pickers to concern ourselves with Al-what's its face. Just throw the bum out and lay some land mines at the border.

This is beyond the silly season, it has become the insane season.

I am beginning to wonder if someone is paying some of these people.

Dennis does have a way of slicing to the bone, when he chooses to.

Yes, I would not want to piss him off.

LaShawn Barber is inadvertently helping George W. Bush. She reminds voters that he is not a far right wing nutcase. Some people fail to have their priorities straight during a time of war. The border situation, by the way, is being resolved. I expect a decent enough bill to be eventually passed.

Securing the borders is not all that difficult with today's technology. We simply have to make it easier for employers to verify the ID of a prospective employee. At this moment, this can be very challenging due to the widespread availability of phony ID.

Thank you for your optimism. I'm serious about that. But stuff like this many conservatives are doing is stupid, silly, paranoia, nasty, counterproductive.

Not only that, they can drop their dreams of being a longterm majority party. They should look at the demographics and remember there will come a payback time.

Second loose talk about impeachment just makes what Nancy Pelosi is drooling for sound more sane. Well, the Republicans are thinking of it too, so what's so scary about it?

This kind of talk plays right into the stereotypes I grew up believing. And we know which side will play this up as just that.

LaShawn Barber is not a high profile individual. Few people have any idea who she is. Not so, regarding Nancy Pelosi. The latter woman is considered a "mainstream" Democrat---with a fairly high name recognition.

Impeach the POTUS because there are illegal aliens in the country. Are we going to impeach every POTUS we elect until all the illegals are gone?

Do these people really want the mayhem they demand?
