The Ultimate Scandal?

John at AMERICAblog asks:

What Scandal Could the Bush Administration NOT Get Away With?

I can’t think of one. It couldn't be anything that could even remotely be seen as an accident, no matter how tragic. Even if he were to do something like get drunk and run over a kid, he would appeal to the Jesuslanders for forgiveness, which would be immediately granted.

It would have to be something deliberate. He'd have to be caught on tape molesting a kid or killing someone or acknowledging foreknowledge of the exact details of 9/11 and telling his minions to let it happen or something. Even then, the tapes would probably be regarded as fakes, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary which would be provided by experts.

I honestly can't imagine what it would take.
