Emperor Bush?

“So this is how Liberty ends, with thunderous applause.” –Padme Amidala, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

It was–at least according to George Lucas–more about the rise of the Third Riche than today’s political climate. The parallel with the rise of fascism in current world politics, however, is all too apparent. But at least George Bush is only here for another few years, right? Er… right?

Well not necessarily. I learnt today that five Republican congressmen are sponsoring an ammendment to the U.S. constitution to–quite simply–repeal the 22nd amendment. The twenty-second amendment is the rule in the bedrock of U.S. law that says presidents can only serve two terms in office.
