Mockuses, Movies, Moyers and more

  • Just got back from conducting a Mock Caucus in Dayton. I really like doing these things and watching all the fun and understanding that comes out of them.
  • Sweetie and I are off to see "SiCKO" this afternoon. (Who saw Michael Moore rip Wolf Blitzer a new one the other night?)
  • If you didn't see last night's Bill Moyers Journal about impeachment with Bruce Fein and John Nichols, you missed a great show. You can watch it at the link above. Take away from the show: Impeachment is not a Constitutional crisis, it is our method for correcting a Constitutional crisis. Watch the show and see Bruce Fein (who authored the articles of impeachment against Bill Clinton) and John Nichols of The Nation discuss the impeachment process and what it's for, and why it is needed now. It's not about Bush. It's about our Constitution and whether we are going to allow the power grab and utter disdain for the law shown by this Executive branch to continue. Because if we do not stop them, then we have said it is okay for ANY President of the United States to put themselves above the law, and no one will be able to stop them.
  • If you were planning on or interested in attending and meeting Elizabeth Edwards at the Grand Opening of the Edwards' Reno headquarters, the time of the event has CHANGED from noon to 10am. The BBQ has been changed to coffee and donuts. From the campaign:

There's plenty rattling around in my head, and I hope to get some of it posted tomorrow.

Bill Moyers was outstanding albeit a bit fast for the technocratical points discussed. But your synthesis of the show is quite on target.

One of the most salient points I came away with was that Chain-ey has been the de facto foreign policy president in this administration.

However, when you hear Biden and others speak about the (im)possibility of impeachment, it always comes back to the process could lead to Chain-ey becoming Psycho 44, a possibilty which leads the entire nation to become dependent on antidepressants and sleep aids.

Never could understand why they can't impeach him first or have a "happy hour 2fer1" impeachment and fumigate the White Haus in just one big circus tent and get it over with.

Besides....I think Pelosi would make a helluva pres!
