Draft Response to Calls to Impeach President McCain
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Third Most Powerful Person in the World, Very Important
The current president, like the last one, and like his party, is a total failure. He's not a leader. He has no judgment, he has no knowledge, he has no plan. I've been saying that for years. I am a long-term planner, and I am working toward long-term gains for Democrats in the House and the Senate. And I say stuff, and I have been saying stuff for years.
There are those who wanted to see an impeachment trial of George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney in the United States Senate, with Senator McCain forced to defend their crimes and Senator Obama forced to defend the rule of law. Hindsight is 20-20 and we can now imagine that in fact such a course would have made Obama president even while preserving a democratic republic, but we were intentionally misled by the Republican National Committee, which in May of 2006 announced that they wanted impeachment.
The Republicans wanted impeachment!
And, remember, I once belonged to the middle class! And, so you should listen to me. I will not divide the nation by haphazardly impeaching President McCain for the same crimes we did not impeach Bush and Cheney for. And I could not impeach Bush and Cheney because a lot of Democrats voted for the war on Iraq. And a lot of Democrats voted for the war on Iraq because they were lied to by the Republicans and they were gullible enough to believe the lies. So it comes down to a question of wisdom and perception, poise, grace, botox, hair dye, and lots of money.
Alright, Mr DeMille, I'm ready for my close up.
