The I Word

The Washington Post is reporting President Bush has basically given Congress the finger. This latest action raised the eyebrows of the rather reasonable folks at Central Sanity.
What exactly are they trying to hide? Perhaps a High Crime or Misdemeanor? Several possible options lie before Congress. They can use their "inherent contempt" power, which does not require the cooperation of the Justice Department, but will have the look of an internal witch trial. They can impeach Gonzales -- he's already on record lying to Congress and that's impeachable all by itself -- and the Senate can refuse to confirm a successor until this mess is settled and Harriet Miers appears before them. Perhaps they will talk about using the I Bomb on the President himself.

Son, when you have moderates talking about impeachment, it's time to fret.
