FROM THOSE COMMUNISTS AT BARRON'S...
Who'd have thunk that I'd today be reading a call for the impeachment of George W. Bush at Barron's Online? Not I.
You'd think people wouldn't be all that upset over a little wiretapping. Nobody seemed very unhappy about it during the 1960s.
Ironically, I was forced to listen to Ann Coulter this morning on the Today show (before I changed the channel). Coulter was, of course, defending the current Administration, offering up how Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus during the Civil War. The thing is, Ann -- had we gone and done that, there would be less cause for complaint. The continuing failure of the Bush White House PR machine is that it's trying to have the nation be both "at war" and "normal." The last time a president tried doing something like this was Lyndon Johnson, and it didn't really work out well for him.
What's next? Michael Moore and Al Franken on the GOP ticket in 2008?
