Surging to disastrophe

It looks like Bush's plan to "surge" another 20,500 troops into Iraq is a done deal -- regardless of what most of congress wants (including more than a few republicans), and what 70% of americans want. In a "60 Minutes" interview to air tomorrow, King George says that the surge is on, no matter what the democratic-controlled congress tries to do. Asked if he thought he had the power to override the will of congress (and most of the country), the Chimperor said:

"I think I've got, in this situation, I do, yeah. Now I fully understand they will," Bush continued, "they could try to stop me from doing it, but, uh, I've made my decision and we're going forward."

Hmm. It brings to mind this gem from 2002:

"I'm the commander — see, I don't need to explain — I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being president."

Ain't democracy grand?

At this point it should be clear to all and sundry that nothing short of impeachment will stop this idiot from implementing his cataclysmically ill-conceived plans. It's time.
