Call to impeach Bush

Wow, Ohio Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich spent 290 minutes on the House floor Monday, reading Articles of Impeachment against President George Bush.

What an awesome birthday present for Layla!

Crooks and Liars has a great article with video from Countdown.

Update: There’s an active online impeachment petition here on Democrats.com, an attempt to get the Democrats to actually do something. And a quick google reveals that there are a lot of these things. ImpeachBush.org has already gone over a million. Pick your flavor of common sense I guess.

  1. Puffery and posturing, E. Sorry Layla won’t get the present you’d like to give her. Would have been much more effective for Kucinich to do this a year or so ago, yet he does it now for…what reason? There’s no chance of this moving forward. Check this out:

    Democrats are once again foiled by their worst enemies: other democrats. Look at the opportunity cost of 290 minutes of congressional floor time. Could something – anything – that is actually actionable have been accomplished in 290 minutes? Given the record of this Congress, no – but who knows? Isn’t that in the least bit upsetting?

    Sorry, rare of me to chime in these days on this kind of stuff but come ON, your nemesis is out in a few months and it’s likely that the Dems will be in total control of the government for the first time in a decade and a half. Be happy for a change.
