To Scrutinize

It is grinding unbearable to witness the continuing dishonoring of the rule of law, of the Constitution, of the principle of the separation of powers, and all the other lies and crimes of the Bush Administration, where Bush and Cheney are not held to account. There must be scrutiny, accusation, sanction or punishment —impeachment— otherwise how can we call ourselves a democratic republic?

One person, alone, cannot stop the fascism that has overtaken our nation. However, to act as witness, for truth, is one way one person can do the job those in power have failed to do. To do art, to fix the truth in time is to scrutinize, to accuse, to sanction and to punish; it is to hold another accountable, to impeach.

Scrutinize the two sides of the President’s face...which side is the real George W. Bush?
