If you want to get to the bottom of something, you don't appoint Henry Kissinger. If you want to keep others from getting to the bottom of something, you appoint Henry Kissinger. -- Maureen Dowd's latest column. I guess I feel the same way about this as I do about Veep from the Deep Cheney's refusal to turn over information about his energy plan task force. If they are this intent on hiding the facts, they must be bad. Let's just assume the worst, get on with the impeachments, and re-ratify the Constitution.

By the way, by "assume the worst," here's what I mean: "Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, since you have refused to provide us with any information regarding your 'energy task force' or your actions/inactions prior to 9/11/01 which may have contributed to the loss of almost 3000 lives, we will assume that the 'energy task force' consisted of the two of you, Ken Lay of the Enron Corporation, and Osama bin Laden of the al Qaeda organization. We assume that you met to plan the attacks of 9/11 as a means to establish a massive US military presence in southwest Asia and the Middle East in order to control the massive quantities of oil and natural gas in the region, and as a way to restrict civil rights in this country and gain complete political control. Now, we don't know these things to be facts, but given the massive coverup of information that should be public that you have undertaken ever since you arrived in Washington, this scenario seems as likely as any other. You have one week to produce every document that we have asked for and to open up the file cabinets at the White House and the Pentagon. Otherwise, we will start impeachment proceedings and begin preparing for criminal and civil actions as well. So what are you waiting for! Run! Go get those documents and bring them here! NOW!"
