The Distinguished Gentleman

I appreciate your wanting to "hold hands across the aisles" in a way; but really, what has it gained the actual people of the "United" States? The Iraqi war criminals (Shrub, the puppet; Rummy, Cheney, certainly Rove: the puppet-masters) continue to go free for the crime of setting this country to war under completely and outrageously false pretenses (little vial of baby powder held by a moral man who was forced by his position to LIE for his conquerors and betray the American people). Meanwhile, the criminals are richer than ever, the American people are poorer than ever. Impeachment should have happened THEN. Why are the rest of us so willing to let these criminals (I think of Nazi Germany) go clumping about unfettered? You're next, you know, Mr. President. And so are we.
