Nuttier Than California

Morons in Vermont:
Voters in two Vermont towns on Tuesday approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for "crimes against our Constitution," local media reported.

The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro in a state known for taking liberal positions on national issues, instructs town police to "extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them."

Vermont, home to maple syrup and picture-postcard views, is known for its liberal politics.

State lawmakers have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and impeach Bush and Cheney, and several towns have also passed resolutions of impeachment. None of them have caught on in Washington.

Almost makes me hope Bush takes a big Secret Service contingent and go to Vermont for a weekend. It would be interesting to see if these morons would put there money where their mouths are.

Now this is why I'll never be President. I'd show up in the state with a phalanx of Marines, some attack choppers, a few figher plans flying CAP AND a heavy contingent of Secret Service, not to mention I'd be armed as well. What's the fun of being Commander in Chief if you don't get to play with the toys.

I have to agree. The temptation would be VERY great indeed to call their bluff.
