King George and Cheney: Cancerous SOBs
by

Still at the Take Back America conference. Joe Wilson just spoke as part of a panel on “Curbing the Imperial Presidency,” and received a rousing standing ovation. He bragged about being the victim of warrantless wiretapping and said citizens and the media had a responsibility to hold the government accountable. His remarks included this dandy:

“We live in a country where the citizenry can get up every day, and call the president, the vice president, the secretary of defense, the secretary of state, anybody else in the administration, lying sons of bitches and live to see the sun go down.”

Surprisingly, King George’s storm troopers weren’t there to whisk him away.

Marcy Wheeler, author of The Anatomy of Deceit: How the Bush Administration Used the Media to Sell the Iraq War and Out a Spy, later compared Dick Cheney’s influence on the administration to metastasizing cancer.

In the question and answer period, the audience wanted to know why Bush and Cheney weren’t being impeached. Joe Conanson, author of It Can Happen Here: Authoritarian Peril in the Age of Bush, drew heat when he argued that impeachment hearings would be a “dreadful political mistake” for Democrats to make. A member of the audience later scolded him for “completely misreading the polls,” which prove that a majority of Americans are pro-impeachment.
