"Ukraine" BushCo

What happened in the Ukraine was termed, Ukraine's "Orange Revolution" (Ukrainian: Помаранчева революція) of 2004-2005, a series of protests and political events that took place throughout the country in response to allegations of massive corruption, voter intimidation and direct electoral fraud during the 2004 Ukrainian presidential election.

While millions of Ukrainians demonstrated daily in Kiev (Kyiv) — the capital city of Ukraine and the center of the revolution where a large 24-hour tent city was set up by Yushchenko's supporters —the action was highlighted by a series of nationwide protests, sit-ins, and general strikes organized by the opposition, following the disputed results of the November 21 run-off election

In our style of expanding our language faster than Presidential power, we can adopt the name of the country, "Ukraine," for our own word -- a verb, ukraine--the act of removing an administration from power by millions of citizens spontaneously demanding it.

After watching those hearings today, my response is, "Let's ukraine BushCo!"

In the concluding paragraph to his statement before the hearings, Conyers said,
Perhaps what is most troubling of all is that if we let this domestic spying program continue, if we let this president convince us that we are at war, so he can do what he wants, we will allow to stand the principle that the president alone can decide what laws apply to him. I submit that is not only inconsistent with the principles upon which our Republic was founded, it denigrates the very freedom we have been fighting for since the tragic events of September 11. That is why we are holding today’s hearing.
How sick! Bush is already fighting for his life and he isn't even being ukrained yet! He is now staking everything on this show with Gonzales, Cheney, the Judiciary Committee and Alito and the Supremes. If they can't make this argument stick, it's ukraine city. This business of him having to devote so much time and energy to this issue is pathetic! It's as if he and the Republicans are checkmating themselves.
