WASHINGTON — These days, when we think of George W. Bush, we think mostly of what a horrible mess he made of the economy. But his even more tragic legacy is the loss of our moral authority, and the transformation of the United States of America from global champion of human rights into an outlaw nation.
I have come to the conclusion that impeaching Bush would indeed have ripped the country apart. If we had done that, there would be Republicans demonstrating in the street holding up Hitler signs and shit. And the Repubs in Congress would completely obstruct everything and be vowing to make Obama a one term president. And that would be too high a price to pay for America actually remaining a moral nation.
