Impeach Bush? Have you looked at the Bullpen

Often I hear the refrain, "Impeach Bush," the worst president ever. While it's hard to disagree with that sentiment, one must look at those waiting on the bench; just waiting to step up to the plate, [God I hate sport metaphors, but somehow this one seems apt.] A couple of years ago I wrote, Stop Chasing Bush, Go After Dick, about how Cheney must go first.

Following the concept of impeachment, I even went so far as to look up the order of presidential line of succesion:
- The Vice President Richard Cheney
- Speaker of the House John Dennis Hastert
- President pro tempore of the Senate Ted Stevens*
- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
- Secretary of the Treasury John Snow
- Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld
- Attorney General Alberto Gonzales

Doesn't loook good, does it?

However, I never did the heavylifting on these scumbags that the The (liberal)Girl Next Door did with this insightful post called the The Conga Line Of Corruption:
The best argument against Impeachment is how far down the line of succession one must go in order to find someone better than Bush. More competent candidates can be found every step of the way, but Bush’s ineptitude may be the only thing standing between us, and a much bleaker future.

Let’s take a walk through the halls of power and see what we would have in store if by some wild chance, Impeachment did actually gain some traction.(This is a must read, read the rest, what are you wating for? Go now!)
