Vermont impeachment resolution.

* wowsers. Lehrer actually reported on the Vermont impeachment resolution.

* josh:
"You've undoubtedly heard the story of the scandal surrounding World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz and the generous salaries and favors he provided to his girlfriend, Shaha Ali Riza, in his capacity as president of the Bank. But look what Sid Blumenthal has dug up. The strings Wolfowitz pulled for Riza, the plums and sinecures go back into his time in the US government -- unexplained security clearances provided to a foreign national, special contracts apparently cooked up especially for her with US tax dollars. I had a hard time keeping all the intricacies and details straight in my head. But there definitely seems to be a story there. Oh, and Dick Cheney's daughter Liz -- MidEast democracy czar installed at the State Department to keep the neocons flame burning -- she's in the mix too."

* in case you missed Uranus' 'love letter to while I was away, it is here:
"What the democrats need in a candidate is the bloodhound who knew it was a stupid idea to go to war in Iraq before it started, and never changed sides. That's who MO should choose. That's who most people would like best for the next term. Plus, the democrats should think about the next election, which stands a high probability of being another GOP forcible insertion. War will be an issue then, too."

There'll be no living with me. Thanks for all the notoriety. I cancelled my subscription to on my primary e-mail account, but noticed I'm subscribed, for some reason, on others. I really hoped would be an education and advocacy organization. Those things are needed, badly! When they polled their subscribers about which democratic candidate would be strongest in taking us out of Iraq, and Obama was chosen because he's popular and black, but plans to leave the military in Iraq, that did it for me. I sent them the link to the post in hopes they'd see it. It's easy for me to be hot-headed about certain issues, and not by virtue of education or wisdom. I'm just old, and have had the consequences shoved down my throat for years and years.

Next week will be a big one for impeachment, with Kucinich's Cheney impeachment introduction scheduled for Wednesday. There's a guy who knows how to run for president.
