Will Bush be impeached?

A front-page article in today's New York Daily News says that Bush knew about Karl Rove's scheme to blow CIA agent Valerie Plame's cover, that he was Rove's partner in treason from the start, and that his claims of ignorance were lies. The source for the News article is anonymous, but, as columnist Ted Rall says, "we know it's 100 percent true because the White House won't deny that Bush is a traitor."

So now will Bush be impeached?

Unfortunately, no, because impeachment is a political process, not a legal one. Because Bush belongs to the same party as the majorities in the House and the Senate, nothing he does can get him impeached.

"Our failed Constitutional system means we're stuck with this disastrous demagogue for three more years," Rall says. "The more you look, the more you'll find that our Constitution has been subverted to the point of virtual irrelevance. The legislative branch has abdicated its exclusive right to declare war to the president, who was appointed by a federal court that undermined the states' constitutional right to manage and settle election disputes. Individuals' protection against unreasonable searches have been trashed, habeas corpus is a joke, and double jeopardy has become routine as those exonerated by criminal court face second trials in civil court. Our system of checks and balances has collapsed."

It's looking like even an act of God won't exorcise this demon, because God is just another one of Bush's cronies...
