Bush Impeachment... so what?
"The decision before us is whether to demand accountability for one of the gravest injustices imaginable," Kucinich testified, avoiding use of the "I" word.
The House Democratic leadership, not interested in a bloody impeachment battle in the last year of Bush's presidency, steered Kucinich's resolutions to the Judiciary Committee where they could quietly fade away, but Friday's hearing did give Kucinich and his allies one opportunity to air their views.
I can't help but notice that in response to "the gravest injustices imaginable," the congress is merely 'air[ing] their views.'" Funny, but I seem to remember a "bloody impeachment battle" over a blow job.
Yeah, I know it wasn't just over the blow job, but let's be realistic here. Anyone who can't see that this is a grave and horrible injustice is beyond hope. I have to be careful in this next statement, because freedom of speech isn't exactly one of the U.S. government's most sacredly held principles anymore. It seems to me that if the world can sit by and allow the leader of a country to be hanged following a unilateral invasion of his country, it ought to take serious umbrage at charges related to that invasion being casually brushed aside out of political expediency.
