    I've always thought Cheney was way out there - the most Voldemort-like official I've run across. But even in my harshest musings about the vice president, I never imagined that he would declare himself not only above the law, not only above the president, but actually his own dark planet - a separate entity from the White House.

Maureen Dowd

Now we have it-- clear evidence that Cheney is again hiding, evading, avoiding the transparency and checks and balances that keep America safe and fair.

Today, the lamestream media are covering the story. But, if they follow the same old M.O., they will be off the story by tomorrow and on to the next kidnapping, the next off the wagon celebrity, the next siamese twins surgery, or an update on Paris, Anna Nicole or Michael Jackson.

Let's try something different. Tell them you want them to cover the Cheney story. Tell them you want them to put investagive journalists on the story-- if they still have any. Tell them that you want to hear about this more than about any of the distrations they usually waste the airwaves on. Tell them failure to do so is failure to do their job to protect democracy.

Tell their advertisers that you don't want to see more Paris Hilton, that you are disappointed in Larry King for giving her airtime.

Make two phone calls. Send two emails. Send two snail mail messages. You ought to be able to do it in ten minutes. Send this on to ten friends.



There are eight members of congress on the Cheney impeachment bill. Call your member of congress. Ask what your representative is doing about all of Cheney's abuses of the constitution. Ask why he doesnt' think the constitution is important enough to protect. Ask him or her to sign on to Kucinich's bill to impeach Cheney. That should take you three to five minutes.



Cheney's arrogant abuse of the constitution, the secrecy in which he's operated has been going on since the first days he was in office. He's gone too far. It's time to call for hearings and investigations. Reps conyers and Waxman should be subpoenaing Cheney current and former staffers to start building pressure. There's no need for a full impeachment. It will never go that far. As soon as Cheney sees the writing on the wall, he'll get a note from his doctor and resign for health reasons. I repeat. Cheney will resign for health reasons as soon as the heat starts to build under him. That's okay. We can prosecute after the 2008 elections are over.

So make the calls, send the emails and letters today. Recruit your friends. This is doable. Keep the stories about Cheney coming. Demand that the lamestream news network break their pattern and do their job.
