Don't Piss On My Hat And Tell Me It's Raining.
Don't piss on my hat and tell me it's raining.

Don't sell me a dead parrot and tell me it's pining for the fjords.

Don't tell me bah bah bah you're loving it.

Don't tell me you're a Nigerian prince who's had an unfortunate accident and needs to deposit a large amount of money in my bank account.

Don't tell me I can make tons of money while working from home.

Don't tell me you've got a bridge for sale.

Don't tell me to apply it directly to my forehead.

Don't tell me to tell ten people to send me ten dollars, then tell them to tell that to ten other people.

Don't tell me it's time for fourth meal.

Don't tell me James Garner wants me to take out a Reverse Mortgage.

Don't tell me my deceased spouse ordered a monogrammed Bible for me COD.

Don't tell me I can publish my poems in your journal for a low introductory rate.

Don't tell me I need a pill to keep my restless legs from bothering me.

Don't tell me you're concerned about the great deal of time multiple impeachment trials would take away from Congress working on the problems of the country, the time it would take for the House to consider articles of impeachment, and for the Senate to conduct multiple trials, would make it very difficult, if not impossible, for Congress to do what it was elected to do end the war and address some of the other terrible mistakes this Administration has made over the past six and a half years.

Because I ain't buying it.

7. Just earlier today...
...I finally got motivated enough, after watching the episode of Bill Moyer's Journal about impeachment, to write to my Congressman Paul Hodes and urge him to pursue impeachment against both Bush and Cheney.

I've been skeptical about the value of impeachment before, because I know that the votes for actual removal of either of these asshats from office probably aren't there, but I'm now realizing that the process itself is important, not only on principle, but for the practical effect it could have on reigning in Bush's imperial presidency and breaking through the cloak of secrecy this administration hides behind.

8. Good Show
Right on target. At the end of the day, the American people are NOT stupid. They know when they are being duped. Some idealists and Pollyannas take longer, like me. But lie to us repeatedly and the dumbest among us start cracking.

By the way, to Kerry4Kerry and anyone else who cares, Senator Cardin was the ONLY one of my three Maryland reps to even acknowledge my recent emails regarding impeachment.
