George Carey speaks his mind

I came across the following quote by George Carey reported by Gene Healy of the Cato Institute on a website called Front Porch Republic.

I quickly found out how much the Bush years had radicalized him. I remember his words better than the place—I think it was over burgers at the Tombs, surrounded by World War I propaganda posters—where he said to me: “I want—and I’m very serious about this—I want to see Bush and Cheney impeached, removed from office, then put on trial as war criminals.” To hear this from someone as genial, gentlemanly, and temperamentally conservative as George Carey was electrifying—like hearing Jimmy Stewart curse a righteous blue streak.

Suddenly I don't feel so alone. 
RIP, Mr. Carey
