Today's News of the Deliberately Obtuse

If Nancy Pelosi actually believes some of the things she says, I'd have to come to the conclusion that she is simply incapable of finding her butt with both hands, and may be so mentally impaired that she should not be without constant supervision and one of those nifty protective helmets for her own safety. That of course is being charitable. Here's the latest from After Downing Street:
We'll gladly pay you $1,000 to ask Nancy Pelosi a question.
Pelosi told "The View" today that she'd impeach Bush if anybody knew of a crime he'd committed, just as she told Ed Schultz a year ago. Here's a list of crimes (PDF) drawn up by Conyers 2.5 years ago. And here's a list of crimes (PDF) from Kucinich's articles of impeachment drawn up by Elizabeth de la Vega.
Could a few thousand people fax these to her please?
Fax: 202-225-8259, Phone: 202-225-0100, Email: AmericanVoices@mail.house.gov or sf.nancy@mail.house.gov
Could someone also deliver them to her at her appearance with Politics and Prose bookstore of Washington, D.C., on Saturday, August 2 at 3 p.m. at Friendship Heights Village Center, 4433 S. Park Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland. (There is no cost for this event. Please sign up in advance by calling the Village Center at 301-656-2797.)
Bush has repeatedly instructed current and former staffers to refuse to comply with subpoenas and contempt citations.
Bush has violated numerous laws and claimed the right to do so in signing statements, as documented by the Government Accountability Office.
To watch a video of Bush admitting to violating FISA (thereby committing numerous felonies) go to the White House website here, and watch the December 19, 2005, press conference. You'll notice that Bush claims he began these crimes after September 11, 2001, which is not true; he began them earlier. You'll notice that Bush claims to have legal justification for violating the law, but those claims have completely collapsed. He also claims the spying is limited in ways that it is not. And when asked why he didn't try to change the law rather than violating it, he said he just doesn't have to because he's the president.
Does Pelosi subscribe to the belief that torture was ever legal?
Here's someone who does not: http://cindyforcongress.org

Certainly there have been plenty of people who have made perfectly clear that the goons in the White House are nothing more than criminals. So what's the hold-up Nancy? Why do you refuse to look at what has already been presented to you countless times? You'd rather History impeach the prez instead? Word to the wise: History isn't going to be too kind to you either.
