Vermont Group Wants Cheney, Bush Charged With War Crimes

Once upon a time, things were as they should be, and everyone saw BushCo for the criminals they are:


President Bush and Vice President Cheney may soon have a new reason to avoid left-leaning Vermont: In one town, activists want them subject to arrest for war crimes.
No, no, don't pinch me. Five more minutes, just five more minutes.
A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on the Town Meeting agenda in March that would make Bush - who's been to every state except Vermont as president - and Vice President Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont town.
Oh please visit Montpelier, Vermont, oh please visit Montpelier, Vermont, oh pleaseohpleaseohplease.
Fifty-4-year-old Kurt Daims, a retired machinist leading the charge, says the petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence and draws on that tradition.
