A Chance to Do Well by Doing Good

Bob Herbert concludes today's NYTimes column as follows:

"We need to cut our losses in Iraq. The folly of the Bush crowd and its apologists is now plain for all to see. Congressman Murtha is right, the war is not sustainable. Even Republicans in Congress are starting to bail out on this impossible mission. They're worried - not about the welfare of the troops, but about their chances in the 2006 elections.

To continue sending people to their deaths under these circumstances is worse than pointless, worse than irresponsible. It's a crime of the most grievous kind."

To complete Herbert's thought: Here's an opportunity for Congressional Republicans to do good for their country and do well for themselves by impeaching Bush and Cheney and throwing them out of office.

What a sweet prospect!

How can they resist it?

How can House Speaker Denny Hastert resist it? He would become President Hastert.
