A deficit of courage in Congress

In terms of the volume of lies told and the amount of money stolen from the citizens and given to crooked political allies, the Bush-Cheney administration has probably now created the most corrupt government to ever exist on our planet. Congratulations, Republicans!

I wish Congress -- even just the Democrats -- had the courage and integrity to do the right thing: Impeach President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney and begin to fill our prisons with their corrupt and greedy oil-company and war-contractor friends. But Congress won't do that. No one wants to utter the terrible truth: Bush, Cheney, Condoleezza Rice & Co. are liars, thieves, murderers, and traitors to their own country. But we'll all keep ignoring the painful fact that in spite of the billions he has stolen, the emperor has no clothes. Congratulations, Congress.
