  •  Thanks hrh, Your Supervolcano image is right on. (none)
    This is so much bigger than most folks think.  We should probably get out the old Think Progress piece "21 Yet-To-Be-Indicted White House Coconspirators" and the Christian Science Moniters 11 leading Neocon ...something or others.

    Hounddog published something last fall that led me to believe more than 30 people might be vulnerable to some sort of tangential indictment if the core 5 or 6 top White House folks get indicted.

    And that will leave President Bush in an aweful position.  Either he has to claim he was the only one in the White House whom didn't know, leaving him looking like a complete sap and the VP sock puppet,   or confess to impeachable offenses.

    Does anyone else think that if Bush were facing such a choice that his ego is so ... unique, that he might actually prefer to confess and declare that he believed the unitary executive powers justify them all in secretly throwing out the constitution.   LOL I'm being a little silly here, sorry, it's way past my bedtime, but this is so incredibly outragious that it boggles my mind.

      It gives me an opportunity to say the word "magma."  Magma.  Magma.  Hee hee.

      •  Magma is a "hot" word with seismic . (none)

        Thanks for interjecting some humor into this sad affair.

        And I agree.  

        This "magmafication" of the political debate could lead to explosive seismic consequences if we don't respond before this molton cauldron of diabolical corruption erupts into a Mount St Helen's like vulcun catastrophy.

        Go team. And let a lava  flow of molton fun reach the oceans of humorous content before solidifying into the unexplored and stratified archives of dkos geological treasures.

          hopefully this "supervolcano" will pyroplast this scandal into history like Pompeii. Thousands of years later, and we can still see EXACTLY what happened.

          •  Good point Skid. This may be the best documented (none)
            failed attempt to subvert our consitution and democracy in all of history.

            With all the internet technologies and media we probably will have a better historical record than any previously consequential historical period.

            Just like we have holocaust museums, our society will no doubt turn this into an historical object lesson that will embed our democratic and constitutional institutions even more deeply.

            Folks like Soros, or the Gates will probably end up endowing some super high tech solar powered CD Roms that will replay this history "forever" into the future and even beam it out into space with lasers, so that long after the human species has dissappeared or been replaced, these historical lesson will be preserved like the images you mention of that terrible moment in Pompei that is perserved in lava and ash for eons to come.

            Great idea.  I hope you get proper historical credit for it.
