Help Make this a Reality

I wanted to send this to MoveOn.org but I can find any way to contact them (let me know if you have an email address or link please).

Here's what I would like to pitch: Billboards placed in large metropolitan areas (and anywhere else money allows) with gigantic close-ups of Bush and Cheney in jail, hands grasping the bars. Caption reading "Help make this a reality. Tell your congressperson to vote for impeachment."

Why? Because the vast majority of the public - even those against this war (and the next war too) get all the news they see from the mainstream media. They have no idea how rotten our government really is, or how close we have come to the complete ruination of all our founders really fought for. Put it out there on the freeway where they can't avoid it. Make the pictures big and plain and very obvious. And have everybody start envisioning Bush and Cheney behind bars whether they like them or not.

If this actually led to impeachment it would be nothing short of wonderful. But even if it just led to a greater awareness by everybody, that would itself be fantastic. You know without question that the right would be up in arms. Good. Even better, the local news would be all over this because of the outrage from the local right wing crackpots.

MoveOn would get the right's panties in a worse snit than when they called Petraeus a betrayer. This could really be big. And by the way, in case MoveOn really does get to read this: thank you MoveOn for not caving on your Petraeus ad. Thank you from all of us true patriots.

Good idea!

By the way, I stole your javascript to make a little countdown on my own site. I'm hoping it will keep me motivated through my long, hard trial as a second time student. Almost over... whew...

I'm glad you like the javascript. I don't remember where I found it. Good for you on your 48 remaining until graduation!

Great idea. I would also encourage folks to take 5 minutes out of their days to call their local representatives in D.C. and tell them this is what you want (Repubs and Dems), call Speaker Pelosi's office and tell her ENOUGH, call Reid's office. Also call the Dems who have the courage to stand up. Kucinish is introducing an impeachment bill on the house floor. Call his office and let him know you support his action.

Thank you for the URL Beth. I tried to find it before. I just sent my idea to them. I like your suggestion too. I'm bad about phoning; I tend to email. Calling is probably better.
