Chumming the Waters

Even as Protesters are arrested at the Whitehouse gates, San Franciso leads the way in passing a resolution calling for impeachment of this illigitimate administration. I hope they are only the first and I think many of us need to start working on our own cities, where plausable. Given the Dubious Dubai deal and the newest revelations concerning warnings the administration had about Katrina and the attention the city has gotten this week, not to mention the shame many feel as the details of our torture camps emerge and Iraq deteriorates to chaos, even many true believer repugs are abandoning the flock.

We also need to chum the waters by making it clear that those defending the administration will be tarred by association. Politicians being by nature, opportunists, will turn on this administration like hungery sharks. That feeding frenzy may create a willingness to adopt a progressive agenda as the consquences of association to this criminal junta take many down in the backlash.

It is up to all of us to keep the heat on and create that backlash -- the anger is out there.
