Help President Bush
MoveOn.org has had some so-so ideas, and some very clever ideas. I like this suggestion that it just sent out to its members yesterday:
President Bush told the press on Tuesday that he doesn’t “have any idea” whether the senior administration officials who blew a CIA operative’s cover will ever be found. But if he just asked his staff to sign a legally binding affidavit confirming that they weren’t involved, and referred anyone who wouldn’t to the FBI, it’s possible he could flush out the perpetrators in a day. To date, the President hasn’t even discussed this matter with his staff.
President Bush can do better than that. He could start by simply asking his staff to sign a legally binding affidavit. Show the President how easy it is. We’ve already done the President’s homework for him by writing the affidavit. Now let’s show him how easy it is for innocent people to legally declare their innocence. You can sign the affidavit and send it to the President in under a minute…
Sure it’s gimmicky, but it also effectively makes an important point. Where is that Plame investigation, anyway?
