Yes, it was a prank

Yes, the "news" of Bush's impeachment was indeed an April Fools prank.

But wouldn't it be great if it were true? If we really were going to impeach this monster—not just to remove him but also to show the world that we repudiate his monstrous evil? (In my wildest dreams, he and most of his administration, including Cheney & Gonzales, are sent to The Hague in shackles and prosecuted for crimes against humanity.) Maybe someday the Democratic party will wake up, start acting like grown-ups and take their responsibilities seriously.

Commenter Casual gives us some links to actually make impeachment happen:

  1. Unfortunately, I suspected it was a prank from the start, given the date, though I deliberately did not do any research just so I could savor the possibility for a day.

  2. Hmm, some Democrats appear to actually be growing a spine.

  3. Dude! you gave up the ghost! That's okay; Not so many folks were really fooled (though I think I had one fish hooked on my site). LOL!

    Thanks for putting me up on your blogroll; now I need to get off the duff and reciprocate.



Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
