Left Wingnuts Finally See Their Dream Realized....

....and no, I am not talking about the election of Barack Obama. Retaking power is one thing, extracting revenge on those whom dared to govern while you were fuming on the outside - now that's the good stuff!

Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales have been indicted on state charges involving federal prisons in a South Texas county that has been a source of bizarre legal and political battles under the outgoing prosecutor.

Cheney is charged with engaging in an organized criminal activity related to the vice president's investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds financial interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and "at least misdemeanor assaults" on detainees because of his link to the prison companies.

The indictment accuses Gonzales of using his position while in office to stop an investigation in 2006 into abuses at one of the privately-run prisons.

Gonzales' attorney, George Terwilliger III, said in a written statement, "This is obviously a bogus charge on its face, as any good prosecutor can recognize." He said he hoped Texas authorities would take steps to stop "this abuse of the criminal justice system."

This will likely go away in short order, especially when it comes from a grand jury convened by a looney-tune Democrat who up until last month was under indictment himself. A typical comment from the frothing Lefties:

Who was the person who sang that song “We’ve only just begun…..”. I hope this is the first of about 8000 indictments of the Bush crime family.

The actual indictment is meaningless, as I stated above - it will not amount to the proverbial "hill of beans". What is signficant is the response of the Left, the glee they take in the forlorn hope that their political adversaries will be jailed for...being their political adversaries.

The quality of today's politicians is dwindling with each election cycle we enter. If we criminalize politics - by attempting to try folks like Cheney, Gonzales, Bush, and Rove - we only shorten the pool of qualified applicants that wish to enter public service. Who the hell is going to want a job where one can be hounded and jailed for...doing their job?

Obama holds his tounge, as he held his vote back in the days of the Illinois legislature. As does Bush, who hasn't met an insult (unfortunately) that he can't turn his cheek on. Although I would think if one could indict Cheney on charges of "abuse" because he owned a tiny piece of a prison, I can't imagine what you can get Barack on based on his shady "campaign finances" alone. Maybe he should speak up? Terms are finite, but revenge is a dish best served cold.

Someone must speak out about turning the poltical into the criminal. Otherwise, I give you a parliment of fools, knaves, cheats, and simpletons.

Imagine Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader and ultimate mediocrity. Now imagine 535 just like him. Then turn your thoughts towards the executive branch....

Ack. Don't blame me for quoting that nausea-inducing tune, the comment just seemed so typical of left-wing sentiment.

I guess it is a reflection of their overall poor musical tastes as well!

I have never seen a more accurate or concise definition of a politician from any time or nation.
