is there a case for impeachment?

To my knowledge, the first mainstream American publication to call for the impeachment of the President was The Nation. Their January 30, 2006 issue made the case quite nicely. Now, it looks as though Harpers is following suit. While it’s true that neither one has an enormous readership, one wonders if Time or Newsweek might not be far behind. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, but could this finally be the beginning of the end? Now that the subject has been broached, will it resonate with the people of middle America? Have we finally reached the tipping point?

Lewis Lapham, the editor of Harpers, Congressman John Conyers, and others will be holding a public forum entitled “Is There a Case for Impeachment?” at 8 PM on Thursday, March 2 at New York City’s Town Hall (1123 West 43rd Street in New York City)… And, if an reader would like to attend and take notes, I’ll pick up the $10 entry fee.

    I liked the last sentence of the Harper’s article.

    It is the business of the Congress to prevent the President from doing more damage than he’s already done to the people, interests, health, well-being, safety, good name, and reputation of the United States–to cauterize the wound and stem the flows of money, stupidity, and blood.

    this was a great issue of harper’s. i’m leaving it out on my coffee table just to annoy my wingnut friends and son-in-law. they won’t read it, but it’s fun to see their faces get red when their blood pressure goes up.
