I Love Vermont

Specifically, I love Brattleboro and Marlboro:
Voters in two Vermont towns approved measures Tuesday calling for the indictment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for what they consider violations of the Constitution. More symbolic than anything, the items sought to have police arrest Bush and Cheney if they ever visit Brattleboro or nearby Marlboro or to extradite them for prosecution elsewhere -- if they're not impeached first.
Way to take the bull by the horns, folks. I'm glad somebody is willing to do what the Democrats in Congress will not. The best part of the article is this poorly crafted retort from a Republican National Committee spokesperson:
"It appears that the left wing knows no bounds in their willingness to waste taxpayer dollars to make a futile counterproductive partisan political point," said Blair Latoff. "Town people would be much better served by elected officials who sought to solve problems rather than create them." [emphasis added]
You mean problems like the Iraq War that Bush created even though Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11 and wasn't hiding weapons of mass destruction? Just replace "town people" with "all Americans" and for once, the RNC and I agree on something.
