Resignation Watch

Well...My predictions are almost always accurate. Except for that Seattle Super Bowl thing. The impeachment proceedings for President Bush don't seem to be moving at the clip I expected but we're still stuck in Iraq, Osama is still on the loose, and Saddam didn't have WMD's. As for the civil war in Iraq...what exactly does it take to classify something as a civil war?

Now I predict that Dick Cheney will resign. This is a problem for those of us who were glad that W had adult supervision but there comes a time when Grampa has to have his gun taken away...Well the ammo at least! The Press is going to continue to eat Cheney's lunch until he goes away. They've been afraid of this admoinistration and now they are starting to smell blood.

Interesting in all this is the number of people who have come forward and announced that they've been shot, too, while hunting...no biggie! Well that's BS of the highest order. I've hunted with a lot of folks and one thing I can state for certain is that danged near nobody puts up with an unsafe hunting partner. Regardless of what the NRA says, guns are dangerous all by themselves, even without having a senescent drunk waving them around.

Lost in all the bombast about Cheney shooting a guy and hiding from the Sherriff for 14 hours Is another more sinister statement by the Vice President...Cheney claims he has the power, by virtue of a Presidential Executive order, to declassify information. Are you shocked?

What this means is that Cheney has rewritten the Constitution to try to keep himself out of jail in the Valerie Plame case, as Scooter Libby turns State's evidence to save his own skin. Scooter claims Dick ordered him to blab about Plame's CIA connection as a political attack on Joe Wilson, you'll remember.

It's all tooooooo interesting, and may fullfill the old Russian curse, "May you live in interesting times."

I wish things could get a little more boring for a few years.

Peace,

Steve
