Friends, Americans, Countrymen...

by Donn Witherspoon. August 12, 2005

Friends, Americans, Countrymen: lend me your ears.

I ask we impeach Bush, not praise him.

The evil that men do lives after them. That evil is oft interred with our bones; So it is with Bush. The ignoble Rove hath told us Bush was ambitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault.

And grievously hath Iraq answer'd it. Here, under leave of the Patriot Act, with the propaganda machine of lies, I say: So are they all, all dishonorable men.

Come, I speak for Bush's impeachment. He is not our friend, faithful only to the corporations. But Rove says Bush was ambitious; But Rove is a dishonorable man. Bush hath brought many captives by rendition, with war that did drain the coffers dry: Did this in Bush seem ambitious?

When that the poor have cried, Bush hath cut their funding. Ambition is hard work, sayeth Bush. Yet Rove says he is not a liar; And Rove no longer can prove thus.

You all did see on the media Bush thrice presented Medals of Honor to those who helped his lies. Was this ambition? Yet Rove sayeth Bush does not lie. But surely that is a lie.

I speak not to disprove what Rove spoke. But here I am to speak what I do know. We have all reviled him once, not without cause: Our cause is to mourn for the number that grows daily.

O judgment, thou art fled behind spin and stonewalls, and men have lost their reason. Bear with us; our hearts are in the coffins there with his lies. There is no cause that will bring them back to us.
