"The National Coalition of American Nuns is impelled by conscience to call [on Congress] to act promptly to impeach President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for ... high crimes and misdemeanors," the group wrote in a letter written on behalf of its board members.
The letter says that impeachment is warranted for their "deceiving the public under the false pretense that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction" and "destroying" the reputation of the United States and the good will of other nations.
"The time for impeachment is now -- before the example of George W. Bush's regime is set in stone," they wrote. "Future generations will thank you for preserving the freedom of our nation and its relation to the entire human community."
Nuns aren't in the habit (heh - you knew it was coming) of speaking out on issues like this, so it's significant when it does happen.
Actually, I'm a bit surprised... since Dick Cheney's clenched-jaw demeanor reminds me of the Batman television series character "The Penguin"... and nun's habits are somewhat penguin-like...
Ok, I'll stop now. This isn't punny at all, and that "hissing" sound is getting louder and louder, but think about it -- have you ever seen Burgess Meredith and Dick Cheney in the same room at the same time?
