I cannot stand to watch the smirking monkey on the idiot box, so I’ll have to take everyone’s word for it when he appears on television. Antiwar has a good article about The War Criminal In The Living Room.
Whatever form of government Bush is operating under, it is far outside an accountable constitutional democratic government. Bush has transitioned America to caesarism, and even if Bush leaves office in January 2009, the powers he has accumulated in the executive will remain. Unless Bush and Cheney are impeached and convicted, there is no prospect of the US Congress and federal judiciary ever again being co-equal branches of government.
