the move to impeach

I know that Pelosi asked Conyers to give his word that he wouldn’t pursue impeachment proceedings against Bush, as it might jeopardize a Democratic presidential bid in 2008, but it seems like the movement to impeach might be an unstoppable force at this point. At least there seems to be a great deal of momentum right now in that direction… Let’s just hope it’s not derailed by that other war we’re committed to fighting.

I’ve said it before, but we desperately need to impeach this President, even if it means that the 2008 presidential race might be more difficult for a Democrat to win. America needs to show itself, and the world, that she’s regained her sanity, and only impeachment will accomplish that. I know it could get ugly, but I’m convinced that we need a very public execution exorcism.

    It just seems like Congress would come off as a bit hypocritical by impeaching the president for actions they’ve largely been complicit in.

    I’m not sure why Pelosi thinks impeachment will hurt the Dem’s chances in ’08. Did Clinton’s ridiculous impeachment hearings hurt Republicans in 2000? Did the country get fed up and turn their backs on those mean Republicans? No, Gore went as far over to their side as he could to distance himself from Clinton. So now we have an actual valid reson to impeach the president and the Democratic leadership is saying that they don’t want to appear too vengeful or something? This isn’t about vengence, it’s about justice, and that’s obvious to the majority of this country. And congress isn’t really complicit in manipulating intelligence to start the war in Iraq, they should be criticized for not recognizing what the administration was doing, and for not stopping it sooner, but the crimes themselves were commited by the executive office, plain and simple. Impeach Bush, Cheney’s heart gives out and Pelosi herself will be president before the election even occurs.

    Just be sure to get the rope the right length. Bad things happen when you calculate it incorrectly.

    I like the idea of impeachment, but, to my knowledge, Bush has not ejaculated into a fat girl’s mouth. It’s going to be hard to get around that.

    One of my favorite recent protest signs.

    Love it, be OH be–and love the enthusiastic posture of the woman holding it.
    (But WHO would do it?!)

    Back during Monica days, a gay friend of mine said, “He’s the f—ing president of the United States–I’d suck his dick!” After GWB took office and I reminded her about what she’d said, she gagged and took it back.

    Technically speaking, Clinton wasn’t impeached for the blow job, but for lying about it under oath as a breach of his vow to protect the Constitution. With the NSA warrantless surveillances, I think Bush also broke his vow. I don’t care what Pelosi said before, she ought to rethink her stance.

    Kate’s right, it was lying about the blow job that jeopardized national security and the lives of countless thousand U.S. servicemen and women.

    And I suspect that if the movement to impeach started gaining any real steam, Pelosi would jump onboard. She, perhaps rightly, just doesn’t want to waste time in impeachment hearings that could be spent pursuing legislation undoing all the shit that’s been done to this country.
