But I don’t have to mention this. I mean, what with the huge media frenzy and all, you must be sick of hearing about it!
Oh, wait. Sorry. I was thinking of when a Democrat is impeached for lying about a blow job. My bad!
It is absolutely amazing to me, although unfortunately not surprising, that the traditional media is still this blatant about protecting the Bush Administration from the consequences of its actions.
Could there be a more impeachable vice president than Dick Cheney, after all? The guy’s approval rating is 9%. He shot his friend in the face while drunk. He held secret energy meetings wherein he planned the invasion of Iraq for its oil, then planned to divide that oil among his buddies. He was in charge of the antiterrorism task force before 9/11 and didn’t hold ONE MEETING. He leaked the name of a covert CIA operative to the media for political purposes, endangering both her and her colleagues. And let’s not forget that the Vice President is a one-man Constitutional wrecking ball!
Yet the silence of my TeeVee is deafening. Not even Keith Olbermann, the most outspoken and eloquent broadcaster on the crimes of the Bush Administration, is permitted to speak of impeachment. I’m sure he is biting his tongue nightly, especially when having to do an entire segment on the vitally important vicissitudes of…”American Idol.”
A majority of Americans support the impeachment of Cheney and, to a lesser degree, George Bush. But then, it’s been a very long time since the traditional news media reflected the views of ordinary Americans; they’re too busy trying to please their corporate masters. What they don’t understand is, if no one watches, no one buys…
