So the question has arisen over the past few weeks: What should Barack Obama do to investigate the actions of the Bush Administration over the past eight years to see what crimes, exactly, were committed?
My sentiments on the matter should be clear from the previous sentence: I believe that certain members of the Bush Administration, including the President himself, are guilty of criminal conduct. I am certainly not alone in that opinion. But even if we assume that their criminality is a given, the question still remains: What do you do about it?
Obama has been walking a tightrope on this issue, as he probably should. He can hardly say, a week away from taking over the wheel, that the first thing he's going to do is dive into investigating Bush and his cronies. I mean, look around. There's a lot to be done. We have two wars burning overseas, an economy in peril, unemployment through the roof, a dismal stock market and, oh yeah, the Earth's climate is changing rapidly and we should probably do something about that, too.
But hold on a minute: just because we have a lot to worry about doesn't mean that we sweep the actions of these ass-clowns under the rug. After all, these are Democrats we're talking about. Folks who can actually do more than one thing at one time. We can fix the economy, put people to work and put Alberto Gonzales in prison, don't you think?
I certainly do. Ring up ol' Pat Fitzgerald on the speed dial. Get him on the case. I mean, he put Governor Hairdo and Governor Lyin' in the crosshairs and let me tell you: they're a lot smarter than Chimpy and his crew.
Sic 'em, Pat!
