Ah, sweet irony and total lack of self-awareness

MoveOn.org, the organization founded to stop the Congressional hearings into and impeachment of a President over little things like perjury so that the nation could "move on," now is so upset over the commutation of a perjurer's sentence that it wants Congressional hearings into and impeachment of a Vice President.

In an e-mail to true believers:
You've probably seen the news this morning: President Bush let Cheney aide Scooter Libby, the one man who was convicted for the lies around the Iraq war, go free. Paris Hilton served more jail time than he will.

Bush and Cheney think their administration is above the law. That's un-American, and this July 4th it's time for Congress to re-assert its constitutional authority and stop the administration's obstruction of justice.

Congress can start by demanding answers from the Bush administration about the Iraq war and their illegal spying program, and not backing down until they get them. Cheney won't testify? Subpoena him. He won't come? Hold him in contempt of Congress and send over the police. And if that doesn't work, impeach the guy. We just can't let President Bush and his administration dismantle our Constitution.

If you don't want the nation to "move on," you can sign the petition here.
