And yet, impeachment continues to be “off the table”

by

Dick Polman today:

Suskind’s charge is obviously quite explosive – particularly since it’s apparently a federal crime for the CIA (or for somebody ordering the CIA) to conduct any covert operations that are intended “to influence United States political processes, public opinion, policies, or media.” Is it really possible that the Bush regime could be this mendacious? And is it possible that the Bush regime could be stupid enough to put such an order in writing – as Suskind claims, based on CIA sources who recall seeing it spelled out on “creamy White House stationary”?

That’s right, a federal crime.  It’s too bad our Constitution doesn’t give us any recourse when the president may have committed such a high crime or misdemeanor.  Sigh.  I guess we’ll just have to wait for the next Democratic president before we get to see some good old fashioned impeachment proceedings.

In the meantime, HuffPo’s Lee Camp was able to unearth the actual forged letter from Saddam Hussein’s intelligence chief to the late dictator and the letter from President Bush ordering the forgery:

    Dude. You realize the jpgs you posted are meant to be a joke, right?

    Your introductory language reads, “In the meantime, HuffPo’s Lee Camp was able to unearth the actual forged letter from Saddam Hussein’s intelligence chief to the late dictator and the letter from President Bush ordering the forgery.” Either your sense of humor is dryer than a James Bond martini, or you really don’t know a cartoon when you see one.

    These images come to us courtesy of 23/6, a parody website affiliated with the Huffington Post. Their headline today reads, “John Edwards throws love child under a bus.” Funny!

    Thanks, Jason. I guess the humor was a little too dry. I figured that most folks would realize that those cartoons are a joke.

    My favorite part:

    “This entire memo is a palindrome.” Classic…
