City officials in West Hollywood recently approved a measure calling for the impeachment of George Bush and Dick Cheney. The Mayor and his merry band of lemmings said they were proud and hoped to one day look back and say they took a stand when the Constitution was threatened. I believe they also discussed what flavor Kool Aid they liked the most.
While reading the story, it donned on me that the Mayor has no idea what the Constitution is, and probably uses the word to describe what happens when he can’t poop. The reasons they are calling for Bush’s impeachment include: allowing the torture of military prisoners and implementing domestic wiretaps. Of course, he produced no evidence that Bush has allowed torture, and failed to mention that the Federal Courts recently ruled that there was NO evidence of the wiretap program infringing on the rights of others. Not even the ACLU could produce someone whose rights had been violated. But, hey, who needs evidence? We’re talking about people in a city and a state that wouldn’t bat an eye about converting to full blown Marxo-Socialism. And in that kind of society evidence of a crime is a mere technicality that can easily be overlooked, just ask OJ (he’s from around those parts, isn’t he?).
The city officials haven’t voted a measure condemning the Fairness Doctrine (currently being considered in Washington) or the Imminent Domain ruling from the Supreme Court. I guess the censoring of talk radio and the governmental seizure of private property for the betterment of society are two things allowed in the Constitution, or at least it seems so in the fantasy world that is West Hollywood. So when Bob from LA calls Osama Bin Laden, the government can’t listen in without violating his rights. But if he calls the Sean Hannity talk show, well then it’s OK.
Considering that women in Tehran are being arrested because their dresses show too much ankle, or are too tightly fitting on their contours, I shudder to think what would happen if such a law was implemented in West Hollywood. Obviously, the Mayor has never thought of that, nor has he thought of the possibility that Bush’s wiretap program is just one of many measures that are meant to ensure no Americans have to endure this kind of treatment. To the Mayor, that’s about as important as evidence of Bush’s “crimes”.
Luckily, the people of West Hollywood don’t call the shots in this country, nor do the people of Boulder, Colorado. If they ever did, well, it would be time to get out the Burkas and head scarves. They should remember that it’s hard to hold peace marches and candlelight vigils for the dying rainforests when you have to pray to Mecca five times a day. And you can’t stand up for your Constitutional rights after you’ve been beheaded. Indeed, when I think about how our glorious Left appeases and enables those who hate us, well, the whole thing makes me a bit constituted.
