That was some of the most riveting TV I've seen in awhile. Really try and catch the whole thing if you missed it. Hopefully your local PBS will repeat it this week.

Yesterday I put a link up to the schedule. I do believe they were repeating it, but I'm not positive.

It was excellent TV. I was riveted, too, Gimme.

Every member of congress who continues to support the tyrants in the White House is, like the tyrant and his minions, a traitor.

Each of them has taken an oath to protect and defend the constitution. To sit passively by and support that treason is treasonous by definition.

Having said that, I am going to continue to make the contradictory point that impeachment should stay off the table for the time being.

The Senate of the United States of America is in the hands of traitors!

This fact is undeniable in that it was impossible to obtain 60 votes to end the filibuster of the Republican traitors who killed a mild censure motion against the chief treason enabler, now usurping the Attorney General's office.

The point was well and accurately made that Bush is setting abominable precedents. The question not asked or answered in the interview was "What precedent will be set when Bush is acquitted in the Senate because 67 votes for conviction is an impossibility when half of the Senators have proven themselves to be traitors?"

Other questions not raised: "What support can the Democratic congress expect from the traitors in the Supreme Court who appointed this traitor in the first place?" What new precedents will be set in the inevitable court battles?

When a criminal violates the law with impunity, it does weaken the rule of law but contrary to the claims of Mr Moyers guests, that is not a precedent. Unenforced laws can be enforced at a time when that becomes possible - as were 19th century civil rights laws in the 20th century.

When the criminal's violation of the law is validated by an acquittal and rulings of the Supreme Court, that is precedent!

People who read this may well misunderstand how I really feel about this subject - unless you have actually read the constitution and understand what it has to say about treason, that is.
