We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Prescott and Boyz: The Bush Dynasty of Disasters will take decades to dismantle...if ever...as their New World Order seems to be a tenacious disease designed to destroy individual rights and rule of law, winning over the masses by promises of freebies for everyone!
The GAO concluded that ''damage, theft, vandalism, and pranks did occur in the White House during the 2001 presidential transition.'' The report stated that some incidents, such as removing keyboard keys, placing glue on desk drawers and leaving obscene voicemail messages ''clearly were intentional,'' and intentional damage would constitute a criminal act under federal law. No prosecutions are planned, though.

Surely removing the W from a keyboard constitutes "high crimes and misdemeanors".

It's not a non sequitur. The government spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to uncover $15,000 worth of damage, much of which was normal wear and tear. The missing W's seems to be the most obvious case of vandalism, but most of the W's were in desks or hidden in plain sight. GAO also noted that some pranking has occurred in previous transitions, and because of the high cost of such an investigation, that new procedures be put in place.
