In support of revolution

I'm not stupid. But a whole lot of people are acting like they think I am. They seem to think everybody is. It's been a month since another memo illustrating the pre-planning that went into the Iraq War Propaganda was unearthed, and summarily buried again. Because us regular guys here in the States can't be smart enough to follow the chain of events, and anyway if our President says it ain't so then it ain't so.

Oh, puleeze ... there's a long line of whistle-blowers documenting the lies and deception that made up the Bush Administration's case for invading Iraq. While two former administration officials (Richard Clarke and Paul O'Neill) actually had the balls to publish the goings on at the White House leading up to the invasion, each one failed to capture enough interest for the media to keep the issue in the spotlight. Or is it really the corporate-owned media that is burying the stories in the first place? War has always been extremely profitable for big companies savvy enough to cash in, so there's no question who so willingly fed the propaganda to the public.
And now we get a little behind-the-scenes info from across the pond, the head of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, Richard Dearlove, who noted that "the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy." And while there are a few in Congress who are asking for an explanation from the White House, 89 out of 435 (all Democrats, go figure) is a pretty piss poor showing of concern for all those young soldiers and innocent Iraqi civilians who have died because Dubya wanted to be a War President.
So where's the call for Impeachment? Do we need to bring in some sexy Iraqi intern to give the prez a blo-job in order for Congress to cry foul? As George Orwel once penned, "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."
It's time for a revolution.

Hey, are you filling out the petitions on MoveOn.org? I do that and support a couple of active Senators in their efforts. The monkey that 51% of America thinks mandated them must go.
