The Torch will pass

One by one they struck their matches to the proceedings.

  1. Nancy Pelosi’s despotic statement “..off the table” ( a flamethrower)
  2. Harriet Miers and Josh Bolton – ignored Congressional subpoenas (strike)
  3. The House postponed a vote on contempt – (another strike)
  4. John Yoo and David Addington (fire-breathers)
  5. Articles of impeachment buried earlier by Rep. Conyers (roman candle)
  6. Scott McClellan does the Potomac Two-Step (road flare)
  7. Doug Feith balks on meeting Col. Lawrence “a hoax” Wilkerson (burned)
  8. Doug Feith appears and does the Potomac Two-Step (firecracker)
  9. Ashcoft appears and says absolutely nothing (misfire)
  10. Kucinich committee review of Executive Power and Its Constitutional Limitations (the burning landfill)
  11. Rove slaps the face of Congress with his inherit contempt (wildfire)

After a series of Congressional failures to force the issues, we see a complete an utter disregard for this democratic led attempt to find the ‘burning bush.’  The assorted crimes and oversteps by the administration are being blocked, ignored and it represents the fact that this government can’t control itself.  The ignoring of federal laws, signing statements and lack of backbone by Congress are destroying the fragile fibers of the Constitution. Other that the small core of libertarian minded incumbents, the rest have clearly decided to piss on the fires that continue to destroy our country.
