Al Capone: Tax Evasion ... Dick Cheney: Bribery
Everyone knew that Al Capone was guilty of the more serious charges. But it was tax evasion that finally got him.

Everyone knows that Dick Cheney is a traitor. If Bribery - the second listed explicit cause of action for impeachment - is what Pelosi's House impeaches him on, will anyone care that the Treason charge wasn't also made, in the final analysis of history?

1. Nope. Anything that gets him out in disgrace works for me.
I would like to get him out on the blood of virgins he drinks every night, but it's just so hard to get the evidence.

2. Some report that the Constitution says we can't impeach a VP -
believe it has to come from some other angle of the law. Usually they resign?

7. The Point Is...
... Al Capone was put away on the "lesser" charge of tax evasion.

If Cheney is impeached on the "lesser" charge of Bribery, rather than Treason, will history draw the same inference about Cheney as we all draw about Capone (i.e., guilty of the greater charge, but put away on the lesser charge)?

5. he ought to be tailed everywhere he goes
I suspect he's working on his stock portfolio and campaigning for his fellow thieves and liars. Does anybody know what that sack of shit does as related to his job description? I swear he's in the basement counting his blood money. God, I thought there were laws against war-profiteering and using your political position for your personal gain. I hate him like I've never hated anyone or anything in my entire life. You are all invited to help me hate him. Thank you.
