President George W. Bush believes executive privilege is an umbrella under which he can hide anything he wants anytime he wants and nobody can do anything about it.

So far, he’s been right. Congress will bluster and talk tough whenever a White House aide refuses to answer questions but that’s about all they will do.

    It’s time we took our government back – without hostages.

    After doing some serious reading, I have discovered that “executive privilege” is not mentioned in the Constitution, officially “executive privilege” is nothing more than a myth.

    Wonder why the courts don’t recognize this fact.

    Oh well. Lets impeach gonzo, then cheney, and then the chimp.

    What fun would it be participate in a palace coup if we couldn’t take hostages? In fact, I can think of quite a few people who should be taken hostage.

    Then, we can ship them to Gitmo and waterboard them. After all, we need to know what else they know.

    Then just for good measure we can tube-feed them fried okra and haggis — topped off with head cheese sundaes topped with anchovies.

    I’ll be happy to coordinate everything.
