Kucinich Gores Bush

Gore Vidal speaks out in support of Dennis Kucinich's call for the impeachment of the Current Resident.

"Although this is the most important motion made in Congress in the 21st century, it was also the most significant plea for a restoration of the republic, which had been swept to one side by the mad antics of a president bent on great crime."

Of course, nothing will be done, as the lapdogs of power are well heeled and constrained with a tight leash. It remains to be seen whether a change to a Democratic administration can unseat the corporate oligarchy that holds dominion over the united States of America. Obama has talked a big stick. The press has fawned over the image of an "unwhite" Presidential candidate, which gives one pause, since the same press see fit to ignore the call for impeachment of their darling village idiot.

Whether Obama offers a true alternative to the status quo is somewhat suspect when one considers his rumored choices of advisors and future cabinet: Chuck Hagel and Arnold Schwarzenegger do not bode well for the future of this nation. Does Obama have the experience to keep popular neocons in place? Once the balloons are all burst and the confetti sent to the land fill, it will be too late to change what few minds are left in this country.

As if there were a choice...
