Who Can Stop Comandante KooKoo Bananas?

Dear Stephanie,
Cant' somebody PLEEEASE STOP this man? Does the concept of a Democracy completely elude this idiot? Does he not understand that he has made a horrible mess and it is up to him and his cronies to put an end to it? What can "We the People" do to make sure he doesn't do any more damage to this country and the world? These are among the many questions that run through my mind every day, if not every hour. I hate to make a doomsday prediction, but I don't think that we can wait until 2008 to change this disastrous course that the incompetent, arrogant boob who inhabits the white house has set for us...

For the Republic
[from the February 5, 2007 issue]

World opinion is against it. The American people are against it. The Democratic Party is against it. The Congress of the United States is against it. The Iraq Study Group is against it. The Iraqi people are against it. The Iraqi government is against it. Many Republican lawmakers are against it. The top brass are against it. But George W. Bush is going to do it: send 21,500 more troops into Iraq. Can a single man force a nation to fight a war it does not want to fight, expand a war it does not want to expand--possibly to other countries? If he can, is that nation any longer a democracy in any meaningful sense? Is its government any longer a constitutional republic? If not, how can democratic rule and the republican form of government be restored? These are the unwelcome questions that President Bush's decision has forced on the country.
