The Rumsfeld Witch Hunt – Canceled

It is with deep regret that I announce that the witch-hunt to run Donald Rumsfeld out of Washington will have to be canceled. The reason is that the bugger has announced his resignation. This is more than we hoped for so soon after yesterday's trouncing by the Democratic Party, but it takes some of the fun out of it for us.

After all, we go to the trouble of planning and arranging these events; the least the victim can do is show a willingness to go through with it to the bitter end. People have had to live through Rumsfeld’s shenanigans during the last five years, and these same people expect some sort of payoff. I won’t use the word revenge; it’s such an ugly term.

Somehow, I’m not surprised that this happened after all the preparations people have made. We set aside dates, cancel all of our appointments, make financial arrangements for travel to and from protests, and perhaps even arrange for bail money. Then there is the cost to purchase materials for protest signs, and time has to be set aside to make these signs. These signs aren’t always ready-made available for purchase. Go ahead, go to Wal-Mart and see if you find any Rummy Must Go signs. They’re probably out of stock already!

Oh, I nearly forgot about the torches! You can’t have a good old-fashioned run-the-bum-out-of-town event without a torch light parade of angry citizens, preferably at midnight! These things can’t be found at Wal-Mart every day! You have to order them in advance!

All this doesn’t matter now. It always happens this way. You plan to go, you buy the tickets, you mark your calendar and then inevitably, Michael Nesmith decides not join the rest of the group on tour! Oh, sorry. I’m getting my witch-hunt confused with a Monkees reunion tour. I have no idea where that brain burp came from.

I think it’s wonderful that the Democrats have taken over the House again, but I still feel cheated. I was so looking forward to seeing someone in the Bush administration hounded from office the way the GOP tried to run Clinton out. Hey, Karl Rove is still working in the White House. Hmmm...!

Boys and girls, don’t put away those torches yet! We may get to use them after all.
