If there are 22 indictments announced the first thing I am going to do is:
Cry. Not from despair, and not even for joy. But from exhaustion. Because I know what it took to get here, and I know that this is only the first step of many that we'll have to go through to clean house...and then the Senate, and maybe even more.

1. I'll cry, too. But not for the reason you present
I'll cry for my nation which was so foolish that it put a group of traitors in charge.

16. Cry then...
for the highest court in the land! The Filthy Five derailed democracy. I look for the Satanic Six, to let the traitors off the hook on appeal, if the case, or cases, make it to the SCOTUS.

19. "Satanic six." Has a ring to it.
Each standing on a point of a five point star, with Roberts in the middle.

23. And in long black robes too!
Money, power and cronyism trumped democracy in that Bush vs Gore case. Those ARE some Evil people.

2. and after that I'm cracking open that tiny little bottle of Champagne
that I have stashed in the refrigerator just waiting for the moment. Perhaps I should get another one to keep here at work?

8. Yeah. I'll join you. It would be a vindication of sorts.
If it happens, it will knock them off their swagger and will require them to think. Maybe the first time they've done so in 10 years.

3. Aaah 22 indictments
Gee half the US population will become zombie.
Brain exploded.

Then evolution comes in
A speck of grey cell suddenly bring light.

Suddenly zombie turn into lynch mob
Chimp start blaming all for not repealing the act

10. And then, suddenly, people who once avoided us for our opinions, will
be asking us how we knew.

24. LOL. It's already started.
I've been resending older emails to the conservabots I know regarding this whole fiasco.

It's actually rather funny to see their reactions now.

:evilgrin:

28. Just off the top of my head,
I've been bringing up Novak's publishing of the outing of Brewster Jennings. I don't have the exact article available, but it became apparent when the RW started dismissing the whole Plame deal as just outing "one person" and discounting it. They don't really know this angle of the story or it's true ramifications.

Now I just tell them, "Wait for it." It's great fun.

:)

4. Not me
I'll spend the rest of the year beating off in front of the TV. First shred of hope after 5 long years, I'm going to maximize my enjoyment. And if it all eventually fizzles... there's an exciting world of drink mixes and cocktails I haven't explored.

6. That is a good idea
Cause when they turn on their own it is usually very very ugly.

11. Okay by me
I've been flinging poop for years, none of it hitting the target. If Fitz scores a bullseye, it's time for Monkey Fun.

12. If it never transpires...
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 06:16 AM by The Backlash Cometh
I'll be as disappointed and depressed as I was after the 2000 and 2004 election. Yup, I'll cry even harder.

5. suggestion for all DU'ers if there are indictments
set up street parties all over the USA, get the tv stations to come along and rub the Freepers' collective nose in the shit they have supported.

Shout it out loud and drown their whining out in a sea of joyous exultation.

It does feel different this time. Hard to explain.

Hoping.......with reservation.

18. A simple statement
WHEN - not if but WHEN they are announced for the first time in many years since Bill Clinton was President I will go raise an American flag in my front yard.

30. Good Idea!
I think I'll join you in that....

there is a street directly behind my house that is a circular "court". The street is infested with RWers who insist on putting out American Flags for any reason they can find....local festivals, the send-off of the local National Guard Unit etc...not to mention every national holiday including Columbus Day .

I refuse to join them in their display but WHEN the indictments come out, so does the American Flag....

That is my hope.

21. I'm going to drink Champagne!
I'm going to eat strawberries & chocolate. I'm going to call all my family and say finally and celebrate with them too. I'm going to laugh & listen to all my favorite music. I'm going to enjoy feeling that heavy dreadful weight of worry about MY country start to lessen. I'm going to make love & giggle. I'm going to go outside and smell the wonderful autumn weather.

IOW - I'm going to do what my creators want me to do when good things come to pass. I'm going to revel in it!!!
