For newcomers to my blog, last summer during the initial impeachment hearings, I came up with an idea for an ice cream flavor called Impeachmint – at least, I thought I did. It turns out others have come up with the idea as well, further adding credence to the theory of a collective consciousness. When Ben and Jerry’s manufactured the nauseating “Yes Pecan!” to commemorate Obaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaama’s election, I thought that would signal the end of my beautiful vision, but it may have in fact signaled the beginning. Recently, an email has started going around. It claims that Ben and Jerry’s asked people for ideas for flavors for George Bush. Lo and behold, Impeachmint made the list!
I feel elated about this. I do not want credit, I just want it done. I doubt anyone has even read my blog suggesting the flavor, others just thought of it themselves. The email has other suggestions, but of course I like Impeachmint, because it offers a very clear message and a means of supporting an idea. We need to put these criminals on trial! I don’t know if the company really did take suggestions, or if the email remains in the joke category, but we did some searching around, and it appears valid. We will certainly keep you up to date on this, and if Ben and Jerry’s does not make the flavor, then we will. The vision lives on!
Even though the time for impeaching the Bush regime has passed with the new administration, we can still demand a fair trial by a jury of his peers. We need to send a message to our government and to the world, that as Americans we will not settle for a runaway criminal government disregarding the will of its people. “Let them eat cake!” Cake sounds kind of good right now, actually. We have some in the fridge, triple-layer chocolate cake. The cake eating stops there however, restricted to the realms of the actual. Metaphorically speaking, the cake eating must stop, and we must stop it now. Then we can eat real cake to celebrate ousting these scum from power forever! We can attain victory, we just have to decide to do it. They need us a lot more than we need them.
