REVISITING DAISY, PROMOTING NANCY October 23, 2006Posted by wmmbb in Iraq Policy, Modern History, Terrorism Issues.
“These are the stakes: to make a world in which all of God’s children can live, or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die.”- Lyndon Baines Johnson(1964).
The politics of fear worked forty-two years ago, and will work now, except the Democrats are too principled for this behavior, or so the story goes. George Bush is enough to make any sane person afraid. Still the Republicans seem to have the fear stakes lead, but will that be enough to prevent the loss of their majority in the Senate and the House of Representatives? Along with tearing up ballots, voting machine programs, gerrymandered districts, and whatever else, they should travel well. Apparently it was Joe Stalin, not Leon Trotsky, who said, “it is not who votes that counts, but who counts the votes.”
An opinion poll has 51% of Americans in favor of impreaching George Bush, and thereby making Richard Cheney President. I say impreach both Bush and Cheyney and make Nancy Pelosi president, on the basis she looks nicer, and probably is.
In this thought experiment, if Nancy Pelosi were to become President, who would become Vice President?
UPDATE: 24 October 2006
Pelosi says “impeachment is off the table”, and “making them [Bush and Cheney] lame ducks is good enough for me”.
