"I'm tired...I'm stunned...I simply cannot believe...I am nauseated...I am sad...I can't accept..."

all of which leads to this, a conclusion with which i am in complete agreement...
No, I can't get excited about the 2008 elections. I can't accept that we must go through another year of these criminals holding power and that no one will be held accountable, whether through impeachment hearings or real enforcement of the investigations that have been held.

The people who call themselves pragmatists say all the usual things, and seem very sanguine about the possibility of Bush and his crew never being held accountable.

But there's one thing they forget. There will be consequences if this happens. Bad ones. We will have allowed a poison to stay active in our halls of government, we will not have even pruned a branch, much less destroyed this evil at the root. There will be consequences that no amount of electoral victory can assuage.

also, to re-emphasize, the vial of "poison" that will remain "active in our halls of government" will pass directly into the hands of the next president to be inaugurated on 20 january 2009...
