Accusations Against the President should be a Felony

I just came across this article by a woman named Kaye Grogan. Here is the first graf, but I encourage you to read the whole thing:

There needs to be a law passed where any person who disrespects the "Office of the Presidency" by making false accusations and spreading deliberate rumors about the president, should be charged with a felony or at the very least a high misdemeanor. President Bush has been falsely accused (with nothing concrete to back the accusations up), from being negligent in stopping the 9/11 attacks, to making up fraudulent reasons to go to war in Iraq.

This article raises several questions and yes, these are directed to the author...

How about all of the allegations made against President Clinton? Weren't those "false"? Where were you six years ago?

I think the reasons for going to war in Iraq were all fraudulent. How can you say their is nothing factual to back up this fraudulent claim?

Your abortion assertion is debatable, but didn't the pro-life President lose the popular vote in 2000? If he is successful in overturning Roe vs. Wade do you know what we'll have to look forward to?

I do agree with your assertions that people do not want their elected officials in bed with big business nor do we feel that politicians can police themselves.

Why do you write about supporting someone who participates in political hatred when you oppose it?

This article is worthy of being called Coulteresque and I'm wondering if Ms. Grogan will take that as a compliment or if she'll even take the time to respond, as I've asked her to do. Please check back as we might have ourselves some good old-fashioned political discourse.

Thanks to Orcinus for posting this article.

UPDATE: Ms. Grogan responded. I'll post her rebuttal on Saturday.
