Can you imagine what our intrepid free press would be saying if President Bush put four Americans into Al Qeada-ville, and left them there as unprotected sitting ducks? And then (unsurprisingly) all four were murdered? How long would it have taken before the cries of "impeachable offense" started?

Or something like, for Bush, "life is cheap"? Maybe even expectations of a White House press conference (I think I remember what those were). What would Code Pink have had to say? Or Nancy Pelosi? They're being awfully quiet, aren't they (speaking of "life is cheap")?
