Hohoho! Merry "Impeachment"?

An etiquette miscue?A Seattle artist sent in an ornament for the White House Christmas tree with the text of a resolution calling for President Bush's impeachment. Said a spokeswoman for First Lady Laura Bush, who solicited ornaments from congressional districts, "I think it really is a shame and, quite frankly, not very much in the holiday spirit."
No, not very merry at all.
Artist Deborah Lawrence said she just wanted to salute Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott of Seattle, a longtime Bush foe who backs impeachment. The nine-inch ball Lawrence created is covered with swirly red and white stripes and features a picture of McDermott. The impeachment resolution is glued on in tiny text.
A local arts group selected her to do an ornament for McDermott's district. McDermott had nothing to do with it.
Sorry, impeachment enthusiasts, her ornament was rejected, the only one of 370 submitted that won't go on the tree.

No, she wanted to get a rise out of someone and see her name in the news. It worked. now she can go around spouting "free speech violation" and "artistic expression" like any other liberal idiot, and see it in print.
