It's the End of an Era

This stuff has got to stop:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receptive to the idea of prosecuting some Bush administration officials, while letting others who are accused of misdeeds leave office without prosecution, she told Chris Wallace in an interview on “FOX News Sunday.”

“I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to ignore it,” the California Democrat said. “And other things that are maybe time that is spent better looking to the future rather than to the past.”

A couple of points need to be made here.

1. Pelosi continues to provide more evidence that when it comes to the exercise of political power, conservatives and libertarians are pikers. The far-far-right called for Congress and Justice to prosecute half the Clinton Administration after President Bush was sworn in. Bush, wisely, declined, and Congress followed suit. Pelosi could learn something from them.

In fact, she did learn something, which I can sum up in one word: “Suckers!” However, that’s a lousy governing philosophy.

2. Pelosi, Reid & Co. are, nonetheless, total cowards. They could have impeached Bush for his supposed war crimes at any time during the last two years — but they didn’t. Now that Bush and his administration are (nearly) at a safe remove, the moonbats are coming out, thumping their chests, and waving their guns in the air. The good news is, like most anti-gun nuts, they’re more likely to shoot themselves in the leg than to threaten or harm anybody else.

Then again, I could be wrong. Maybe a good, clean witch hunt is exactly what we need to keep the Far Left all riled up — and distracted from important issues where they could do real harm.
