A Whiff of Grapeshot

Nothing makes some people so happy as to see American peasants in a revolt of political infighting. Nothing spells this out so clearly as the partisan cleansing suggested by this cat names Werther. I note the particular relish suggested by the following paragraph.

6. Appoint a special prosecutor. Armed with plenary powers of subpoena, this bulldog would comb the documents of the Defense Department, the White House, the Energy Task Force, and other agencies for any evidence that our elected public officials violated 18 U.S.C. 1001 (making false statements to Congress), 18 U.S.C. 371 (the broad anti-conspiracy statute that would apply in the case of provoking a war), or any other statute or Constitutional provision that may have been violated in prosecuting a pre-emptive war on false pretenses. Faced with prolonged hospitality at Allenwood, some of the Thors and Wotans who rule over us might be induced to practice a refreshing candor, for once.

Starr Chamber anyone?

What is remakable about this diatribe is how absolutely devoid it is of any geopolitical concern for allies, Iraqis or even the U.N. If the author didn't have to say 'Iraq' to contextualize his harangue, one hardly believes he would bother to mention it at all.

Most cheeky of all, Werther considers his 'modest' proposal constructive.
