The late night comedians and Jon Stewart et al are having a field day with the latest episode in the scandal ridden activities of the Bush Administration. Viewers were ‘treated’ with a dramatic spectacle of Alberto Gonzales trying to browbeat a barely conscious former Attorney General, Ashcroft, into signing off on a law breaking spying order crafted by White House lawyers. Acting attorney general, James Comey, blew the whistle on these illegal activities claiming they voiced their vigorous opposition to the illegal wiretapping order but to no avail. Their objections were ignored, and the Bush Administration went ahead to order the illegal spying of US citizens in complete violation of the law. Surely, this blatant action and disdain for our Constitution qualifies as a high crime and therefore merits impeachment. How long must we be silent witnesses to the criminal behavior of this administration?
