So, I'm not entirely sure how my personal email address got on the "Democrats.com" email list, but some how it got on it. (My email was on the Republicans email list, too at one point, but I had the good sense to remove it.) Earlier tonight I got an email from them that had an amusing subject--I've made it the title of this post.

My first reaction was: "That's rich! Where were the Democrats five years ago when Bush illegally invaded Iraq?"

I still think it's a valid concern, but I actually read their email and something in it really got me going. Have a look:

Congress Must Demand Bush and Cheney Resign

George Bush wants taxpayers to pay $700 billion to bail out Wall Street for its reckless investments in mortgage-backed securities. That's on top of $800 billion for other recent bailouts, including A.I.G., Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Bear Stearns.

The current financial disaster is the direct result of the Bush-Cheney Administration's 8-year policy of deregulation, corruption, and greed.

The Bush-Cheney Administration cannot be trusted to solve the massive problems they created. Before Congress gives the Bush Administration one dime of taxpayer money for financial bailouts, Congress must demand the immediate resignation of George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Henry Paulson and the appointment of Speaker Nancy Pelosi as President until our next President is sworn in on January 20, 2009.

Email your Senators and Representative and spread the word:

Again, my instinct, initially, was to blow this email off, just like I did Robert Wexler's attempts to impeach Bush while simultaneously asking for campaign donations. However, I'll give you one guess at what it was in this email that made my ears prick up.

No, it wasn't the basic message that Bush and Cheney should be gone from the White House. I've been saying that for years and there are WAY more reasons for them to leave than just Bush and Cheney's move to embrace socialism for corporations. No, what made my right eyebrow rise was that last bit. They want Bush, Cheney and Paulson out and:
...the appointment of Speaker Nancy Pelosi as President until our next President is sworn in on January 20, 2009.


Now, I'm no fan of Pelosi. She lost my faith when she said that impeachment was off of the table a while back. However, getting a Democrat woman into the White House before even the election would be a devastating blow to the McCain campaign. There would be no way in hell he could win after enough of raised our voices to get his man out of the Oval Office.

I get scared looking at the polls and wondering why Obama isn't doing better in them. How can they be polling so close to neck and neck when McCain is campaigning on a platform he ripped off from George Bush?

I don't believe Americans are that stupid. This is why I'm hoping you, my faithful readers will please click on that link above (or this one here: www.democrats.com/resign ) and voice your support for a demand of resignations from Bush, Cheney and Paulson.

If enough of us speak up now they won't have a choice but to actually react. We, The People of the United States of America can make our opinion known by telling Congress ourselves that we want this administration GONE from the White House.

Please, please, please, please, do this!

I don't ask for much--I hardly ever ask my readers to sign on any dotted line, but if we can just get together on this one point--that we want the Bush Administration gone IMMEDIATELY--we don't have to worry about McCain winning in November.

Got a blog? Please blog about this. Got a Twitter account or an account at another micro or miniblogging site (like Jaiku or Tumblr)? Pleeease post about this there.

Feel free to post links to your blog posts in the comments.

By doing this we can avoid giving our flawed election system the chance to screw up another presidential election with a tight race! We need a landslide to have an undeniable winner--unlike in 2004 and in 2000 when Bush won by an iffy hair's width.

By making your voice heard you can beat the electronic systems that are owned by Republicans and don't provide reliable methods for recounts.

I've already filled out that form. I hope you will, too.
