Bush resign now?

Gail Collins in The New York Times:

"Thanksgiving is next week, and President Bush could make it a really special holiday by resigning. . . . Dick Cheney, obviously, would have to quit as well as Bush. In fact, just to be on the safe side, the vice president ought to turn in his resignation first. . . Then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would become president until Jan. 20. Obviously, she’d defer to her party’s incoming chief executive, and Barack Obama could begin governing. . . Can I see a show of hands? How many people want George W. out and Barack in?"

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/22/opinion/22collins.html?_r=1

There is something called a Constitution. It outlines the orderly transfer of power after elections. These things are not decided ad hoc by a show of hands. That road leads to mob rule and authoritarianism.

I can't stand Bush. Never have, never will. Bush cheated in 2000, and stole in 2004, and screwed up everything in between. But, the Congressional Democrats let him. The Congressional Democrats could have gotten rid of Bush two years ago, constitutionally. It's called impeachment.

Now we're to get rid of Bush by "a show of hands"? Every time I read something like this - - in the New York Times, no less - - it justifies my fears for the future of our system of government.
