WOULD YOU BE FOR IMPEACHMENT IF...?
(1 comments) All this adds up to one thing: George W. Bush, President for Life. Believe it or not, there would still be that bedrock twenty per cent of Bush lovers who would say it was just fine if their Clown Prince stayed on.

Redneck Economics

God Save Us from the Neocons Born Leaders Every One
Who are these people? Where did they come from and how did they ever get control of the government? They've been sliding in and out of key positions in every administration for forty years.
