George Bush has visited 49 states, and with this latest push to arrest Cheney and him on war crimes charges, it looks like Vermont will remain the only un-Bush state. Oh, to be so lucky!
A group in Brattleboro Vermont is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community.
"This petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence, and it draws on that tradition in claiming a universal jurisdiction when governments fail to do what they're supposed to do," said Kurt Daims, 54, a retired machinist leading the drive.
I would hope that the World Court in The Hague would be sending some lawyers to this town to help write the war crimes indictment. After all, they have been doing a fine job of that with other miscreants and scoundrel leaders for some time.
Were Karl Rove still advising Bush, I am certain that he would have planned an unannounced, midnight stop at the airport just to stick it to the insurgents in Vermont. The coward. But we already know that.
