‘Doonesbury’ Character Calls for Bush’s Impeachment

By E&P Staff

NEW YORK Today’s “Doonesbury” comic comes right out and says it: “Impeach Bush now!”

The strip shows the Mark Slackmeyer character looking at reader e-mails as Mike Doonesbury stands behind him.

One e-mail from “M.R.” of Austin says: “What’s up with criticizing Bush day after day? Give it a rest already!”

To which Mike responds: “Actually, M.R., we’re not as relentless as you think.

Despite Iraq, Katrina, wiretapping, torture, etc., in the last year there’s only been a total of 55 strips ripping the president!”

Then Mark says “Impeach Bush now!” — causing Mike to add: “Okay, 56.”

Garry Trudeau’s “Doonesbury” runs in about 1,400 newspapers via Universal Press Syndicate.

    We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.
    – George Orwell

    Vermont state senators voted Friday to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, saying their actions have raised “serious questions of constitutionality.”

    Please join me and millions of Americans on Apri 28th in standing with Vermont, whose state motto is FREEDOM AND UNITY, in calling for the impeachment of George W Bush and Dick Cheney for the following reasons:

    1. Violating the United Nations Charter by launching an illegal “War of Aggression” against Iraq without cause, using fraud to sell the war to Congress and the public, misusing government funds to begin bombing without Congressional authorization, and subjecting our military personnel to unnecessary harm, debilitating injuries, and deaths.

    2. Violating U.S. and international law by authorizing the torture of thousands of captives, resulting in dozens of deaths, and keeping prisoners hidden from the International Committee of the Red Cross.

    3. Violating the Constitution by arbitrarily detaining Americans, legal residents, and non-Americans, without due process, without charge, and without access to counsel.

    4. Violating the Geneva Conventions by targeting civilians, journalists, hospitals, and ambulances, and using illegal weapons, including white phosphorous, depleted uranium, and a new type of napalm.

    5. Violating U.S. law and the Constitution through widespread wiretapping of the phone calls and emails of Americans without a warrant.

    6. Violating the Constitution by using “signing statements” to defy hundreds of laws passed by Congress.

    7. Violating U.S. and state law by obstructing honest elections in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.

    8. Violating U.S. law by using paid propaganda and disinformation, selectively and misleadingly leaking classified information, and exposing the identity of a covert CIA operative working on sensitive WMD proliferation for political retribution.

    9. Subverting the Constitution and abusing Presidential power by asserting a “Unitary Executive Theory” giving unlimited powers to the President, by obstructing efforts by Congress and the Courts to review and restrict Presidential actions, and by promoting and signing legislation negating the Bill of Rights and the Writ of Habeas Corpus.

    10. Gross negligence in failing to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane Katrina, in ignoring urgent warnings of an Al Qaeda attack prior to Sept. 11, 2001, and in increasing air pollution causing global warming.

  2. Bush is the worst president in American history. Bush facilitated the 9/11 attacks. Subsequently, Bush lied to Congress and the American people relative to the reasons for invading Iraq. Bush purposefully misled Congress and the American people. Then, Bush murdered more than 4,000 United States service members. And Bush wounded more than 30,000 United States service members. In torturing prisoners of war, Bush patently violated the Geneva Convention. Bush unlawfully wiretapped United States citizens. In using “signing statements” to challenge hundreds of laws passed by Congress, Bush violated the Constitution. Bush has ignored global warming. Bush is guilty of criminal negligence relative to the response to Hurricane Katrina. Bush disobeys our democratic values and Constitution. Bush is a disgrace to the United States.

  3. Hi Andrew Yu-Jen Wang, thanks for your comment. It is an interesting summing-up.I only have a question about what you mean with “Bush facilitated the 9/11 attack”. I’d say that the Bush administration and 9/11 was bungling incompetence, rather than a conspiracy (which presumes a level of intelligence which they don’t have).
