Bill Clinton was impeached for having sex with "that woman" and lying about it. "That man," George W. Bush, lied about weapons of mass destruction and an Iraq/Sept. 11 connection. Clinton's lie caused extreme embarrassment to a nation. Bush's lies lead to the deaths of hundreds of U.S. service personnel, the deaths of thousands of Iraqi civilians and cost the U.S. treasury billions of dollars.
Even the rednecks who drive around Juneau shredding U.S. flags in the beds of their pick-up trucks must recognize that Bush's lies are grounds for impeachment. Clinton's lie wasn't.
Nero fiddled while a city burned. "That man" vacationed while U.S. cities flooded, America flounders and national bankruptcy looms. It's time to get rid of our fiddling cowboy. Impeach "that man" and his sidekick Cheney.
