Here is the petition text:

 

To:  Senate Ethics Committee

The Democrat senators on the Senate Select Intelligence Committee are putting American lives at risk.

The Democrat memo that surfaced last week uncovered a detailed “plan” by Democrats on the Select Intelligence Committee to use the resources of that committee as a political tool against the White House. Under the guise of a non-partisan “investigation” the Democrats plan, as revealed by the memo, is to find something, anything, to “castigate the majority” and make it appear that “senior administration officials who made the case for. . . war [used]. . . dubious motives and methods.” They have already concluded that BEFORE conducting an investigation!

The memo admits that “[the Democrats] don't know what [they] will find,” yet they have already arrived at their conclusion! All they know is that they have an opportunity to use the power of the Select Intelligence Committee against the President, for political gain, and they “intend to take full advantage of it.”

Senator Zell Miller, a Democrat himself, had this to say about the memo:

“I have often said that the process in Washington is so politicized and polarized that it can’t even be put aside when we’re at war. Never has that been proved more true than the highly partisan and perhaps treasonous memo prepared for the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee.

“Of all the committees, this is the one single committee that should unquestionably be above partisan politics. The information it deals with should never, never be distorted, compromised or politicized in any shape, form or fashion. For it involves the lives of our soldiers and our citizens. Its actions should always be above reproach; its words never politicized.

“If what has happened here is not treason, it is its first cousin. The ones responsible - be they staff or elected or both should be dealt with quickly and severely sending a lesson to all that this kind of action will not be tolerated, ignored or excused.

“Heads should roll!”

We agree with Senator Miller. The Democrats are taking a very dangerous path. They are fostering distrust that will prevent the committee from getting information integral to saving American lives – such as the locations of terrorists with RPG launchers that can be used to down American helicopters. The Democrats have gone too far this time – they are forsaking American lives for political gain.

Under the principle of respondeat superior, the Democrat senators must be held responsible for the actions of their staff.

For all the above reasons, inter alia, we, the undersigned implore you to:

Conduct an exhaustive ethics investigation into the source of the memo and those associated with it.

Expel any members of the Senate found to be associated with the memo.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Would someone mind writing up a press release (or email) for the petition and sending it out to the media, including hannity@foxnews.com, oreilly@foxnews.com, special@foxnews.com ?

Also, if you could send it out to other media outlets, that would be great too.

I'm too mentally exhausted to do it after writing and setting up the petition :)

Sir George the W
(sung to the tune of John Barleycorn – original lyrics here: http://www.pokkettz.demon.co.uk/barleycorn/about.html )


There were nine naysayers come out of the left, their party’s nod to vie.
And these naïve nine made a solemn vow: the W presidency must die.
They’ve plotted, they’ve lied, and they’ve criticized, implied the Prez was a liar.
Then these nine fools began an endless chant: Iraq’s become a quagmire.

They let that drone on for a very long time, till his ratings from sky heaven did fall.
But George’s approval polls sprung up again, and so amazed them all.
They’ve prated on through Labor Day, till it seemed like a draft-Hillary plan,
But little Sir George has grown a thick, thick bark, and so become the more Statesman.

They’ve hired pollsters with a bias to keen, to “interpret” how our own eyes do see.
They’ve rolled that across all the major airwaves, serving Bush most barbarously.
They’ve hired useful goons with painted-on blood to loudly declaim the war.
But the Minority has served him worse than that, for they’ve blocked his Judge picks on the floor.

They’ve shouted to our foes to expect a reprieve, if they can just guerilla on for awhile.
Then they’ve paraded all the news of our dead patriots, crying tears most crocodile.
They’ve hired staffers with inside war intel, to craft a plan to cause grief,
And impugn and disparage during the war, a sitting Commander in Chief.

And little Sir George and his A-team staff, and he’s landing in triumph on aircraft.
And little Sir George and his A-team staff, will prove the strongest force at last.
Not one of the nine nor Hillary nor Gore, nor any that win the nod next season.
Can carry the heartland of America at war, with the record of their words of treason.
