Anti-War Rally in D.C.: Speakers Label Bush "War Criminal"; Call for Impeachment

I will sum up my disparate thoughts on the self-flaggelating ritual of Banned Books Week later today.

For now, Reflections of a libertarian Republican has an interesting post-mortem on the anti-War, anti-Bush, anti-Israel, anti-police, anti-capitalism rally and protest held this weekend in Washington, DC. His thoughts are more measured than mine, so I'll let him speak and spare myself a rise in blood pressure.

Don't misunderstand: I know many people who think the Iraq war to be folly. They range from paleoconservatives, to Republican moms, to libertarians, to moderate liberals who believe in defense but think Iraq was the wrong move. However, such people are in short supply at protests of this sort.

Wade into the political cesspool with Cindy Sheehan, Jesse Jackson, Rep. Cynthia McKinney, and (or course) Saddam Hussein's defense lawyer, Ramsey Clark.

Be sure you wash up afterwards, lest the stench remain.
