The #1 Argument Against Impeaching Bush

Is, of course, the idea of what would replace him.

You just gotta love the Veep. Just when you think he's slithered off to his undisclosed location hole to continue his work on behalf of the dark spirits, he pops back up for a brief moment to stick his tongue out at the world before diving back in.

As you probably have heard or read by now, Cheney & his crew have decided that it's not just enough to refuse to comply with an executive order governing the handling of classified information. Nope, that was kids stuff. They've stepped now to true Cheney-level of malfeasance and tried to junk the office that dared to ask him to comply with U.S. law. I mean really, what WERE they thinking? This is Darth Cheney - a man whose heart is so black that neither light nor reason can penetrate it.

Well if you can't ignore the law, if you can't fire the enforcers, then of course the next step is to just refuse to comply by making a legal argument that will leave them laughing in the aisles. The argument? Well since Cheney's Veep duties include serving as prez. of the Senate, he is free, FREE from those silly Congressional oversight rules on the executive branch. One of my favorite quotes from the Cheney staff is in the WaPo article on this latest goofiness from the Dark One.

The vice president's office is "not subject to such investigation" by the National Archives' Information Security Oversight Office, the spokeswoman said. But she could not explain why Cheney's office initially complied with reporting requirements, then stopped in 2003.

I think she's onto something -- got the IRS on your back? Creditors? Well just tell them that you are "not subject to such investigation" by those groups - go on your merry way. After all, if it's good enough for the Veep, it's certainly good enough for the rest of us.
