The Actual Best Headline From March 4

Vermont towns vote to arrest Bush and Cheney

The only problem I have with it is the clause "vote to."

Voters in two Vermont towns on Tuesday approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for "crimes against our Constitution," local media reported.

The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro in a state known for taking liberal positions on national issues, instructs town police to "extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them."

I would actually like to see this in a bunch of towns. The post-Presidency and Vice-Presidency should be characterized by Bush and Cheney having to go underground to avoid prosecution. If the Congress refuses to allow for any measure of accountability the localities ought to in their stead. Large swaths of the country should be made off-limits to them. Fourthbranch'll love it, but Bush's ego would tear at him. He thinks he's a swell guy loved by everyone.

I can't WAIT for him to go out and raise cash for McCain. The protests should be immense.
