Can we get rid of Cheney, too? Just so we don't have to do this every few months for the next two years?

That is a prerequisite to impeaching Bush. Cheney first.

Those little mischief makers!

Nailing Shooter would mean that the Scooter firewall needs to burn and Fitz can connect the dots tangibly.

the vice president is not necessarily responsible for every single thing that comes out of the mouth of every single member of his staff

Only when the VP is a Republican.

Insight (quoted by EW @ top): "The conservatives, who include Newt Gingrich, Richard Perle and leading current and former members of the Pentagon and National Security Council, have urged the president to transfer Miss Rice out of the State Department and to an advisory role. They said Miss Rice, stemming from her lack of understanding of the Middle East, has misled the president on Iran and the Arab-Israeli conflict."

Brilliant! When all else fails, blame it on the black girl.

Typical Republicans.

Actually, blaming "it" on everybody or anybody else IS typical of Republicans. There is nobody with the personal courage to admit to a specific mistake in the entire Administration from the President on down.

"mistakes were made"

...but not by any of them as individuals acting intentionally.

They think they are doing God's will (or the President's will as the same thing), so they can't possibly be doing the wrong thing. If God said to smite Iraq, then any mistakes were due to how they obeyed the command, not to the command itself. If God said to increase and multiply, that ought to apply to people in your department and the number of wives and mistresses as well as children at home. If God's favor is shown by personal wealth, then anybody who wants to be holier than the other guy has to find ways to gain wealth, even if deferred or indirect, such as benefiting the wife or nephew.

If your theocracy is absolute, omniscient, infallible... and you are basking in all that glory... then the stain of corruption couldn't possibly threaten to blacken your heart no matter how many laws you've broken, bribes you've accepted, countries you've invaded.

As the Religious Right tightens its grip upon the Republican Party and the neocons continue to advance their Project for a New American Century, we will see ever more mistakes and ever less personal accountability.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.
