The towns of Brattleboro and Marlboro have in instructed their police departments to arrest Vice President Dick Cheney and Commander in Thief, George W. Bush. Without elaborating on any specifics, the ballot’s measure asked voters to approve the indictment based on “Crimes against the Constitution.”
State lawmakers have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and impeach Bush and Cheney, and several towns have also passed resolutions of impeachment. None of them have caught on in Washington.
Pretty dumb, don’t you think? Especially when you head on to the next paragraph:
Bush has never visited the state as president, though he has spent vacations at his family compound in nearby Maine.
From USA Today:
In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012 for and 1,795 against. In Marlboro, it was 43 to 25, with three abstentions.
“I hope the one thing that people take from this is ‘Hey, it can be done,”‘ said Kurt Daims, 54, who organized the petition drive that led to the Brattleboro vote.
He said he hopes Bush and Cheney are never arrested here; he wants them impeached before that could happen.
Organizers of the campaign to have these two thugs arrested complained because the ballot included their measure on the back of the form. They wanted the measure front and center on the front cover!
Organizers of the indictment campaign were frustrated that the printed ballot ended up relegating the Bush-Cheney indictment article to the back side, which they said would cause some people to miss it.
The 8-by-14-inch yellow cardboard ballot listed the offices and candidates in the local election on one side, and at the bottom in block letters “Turn Ballot Over and Continue Voting.”
The article read: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictments for consideration by other authorities and shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and prosecute or extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them?”
In spite of all the hub-bub going on – people forgot to turn the ballot over anyway. (Which is astounding, if you ask me.) Said:
Barbara Southworth, a 66-year-old nurse, said she would’ve voted against it.
“I forgot to vote because it was on the flip side,” she said.
Check out the last sentence on Deutsche Welle on the exact same story:
Voters in two towns in the US state of Vermont have approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for “crimes against the Constitution.” The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro instructs local police to extradite Bush and Cheney to other authorities that may prosecute them. Lawmakers in Vermont, a state known for its liberal politics, have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and to impeach Bush and Cheney. None of them have caught on in Washington.
That’s pretty damned funny.
Here’s a really cool video I found on YouTube on the topic (Especially the last two older gentleman):
