Impeachment day.

Impeachment day.

In my earlier post, I referenced an article that appeared in the mainstream populist publication In These Times. It was authored by John Nichols and carries the title "In Praise of Impeachment."

read David Swanson:

Political questions are tricky and complicated. Sometimes causes that are just and good must take a backseat to other priorities or long-term strategies. Setting all such perfectly reasonable considerations aside for a moment, I'd like you to ask yourself a simple yes or no question: Do you think President Bush has committed one or more impeachable offenses?"

* rimone has more

Is that the one with "Rock"? And if so, have you informed him that I'm naming my next child (er, grandchild{?}...I may have to pull rank) after him?

rimone said...

*sigh* oh wait...where was i? right, i sent him over to Luke's page to read your/my comments; he was laughing his ass off.

lukery said...

rimone said...
