Olbermann Documents Political Timing of Terror Alerts

Thirteen incidents where political difficulty for the Administration was followed suddenly by “terror alert” type announcements, which have generally turned out to be utterly bogus.

Draw your own conclusions. (And do read the disclaimers in the article. This ain’t proof of anything.)

Man, why am I getting all political again on the blog? Cause I see stuff on Reddit I wanna post.

Bush impeachment poll

Bush impeachment poll

“The results of this poll are truly astonishing,” said AfterDowningStreet.org co-founder Bob Fertik. “Bush’s record-low approval ratings tell just half of the story, which is how much Americans oppose Bush’s policies on Iraq and other issues. But this poll tells the other half of the story – that a solid plurality of Americans want Congress to consider removing Bush from the White House.”

Well, lovely as that sounds, America elected the wrong set of Senators and Congressmen to make that a possibility. And do we really want to set a precedent of continual impeachment? Impeaching two presidents in a row? I mean, yeah, he deserves it a hell of a lot more than Clinton did. Thousands and thousands of human beings died for his lies, whereas the only deaths involved in Clinton’s lies in any way were spermatozoa — and they preceded the lies. But I can’t see how, say, impeaching Bush and putting Cheney officially in power would improve the nation’s situation.
