Those conservatives are so sneaky

House and Senate conservatives wrote a remarkably clever anti-abortion provision into the just-passed $388 billion spending bill, making it illegal for government agencies to withhold money from hospitals, doctors, clinics, and insurers that refuse to offer abortions.

In other words, more money now will go to health care providers who don't perform abortions--typically, "faith-based" doctors and institutions.

Just like four years ago, Bush and Co. are wasting no time pandering to their baseā€”and screwing the rest of us.

Ugh. It's sickening to think that we're "lucky" enough to have him around for another 4 years. Any ideas about how we can go about impeaching the lying bastard?

Yunie,

If the crimes Bush has already committed aren't enough to impeach him, we fear he is unimpeachable. But there must be SOMEthing we could nail him on...especially if he keeps ratcheting up his acts of hubris.
