Three Washington Democrats stand with Kucinich on Cheney impeachment


I am shocked, but according to House.gov, Norm Dicks, Jim McDermott, and Jay Inslee all voted to oppose tabling the resolution of Dennis Kucinich's impeachment resolution. This means that the issue will continue to stay alive, at least for two more days.

Now it moves to the House Judiciary Committee, where presumably John Conyers will attempt to keep it and expose pieces of the indictment to the press as time goes by. I don't expect it to come out of the Committee, unless some really juicy information comes out and the press actually does their frickin' job and tells the people what it's all about.

If you have a minute, call Kucinich, Dicks, McDermott, and Inslee, and let them know you respect their passion for the Constitution. We need that kind of passion if we're going to save this country from a total fascist meltdown.

As per their usual games, the Big Media are predicting that the effort to impeach Cheney will die in committee. But I wouldn't count Conyers out just yet. There is still a chance that we can take Cheney down. Vigilance!

I'm glad you are able to get the lemmonaide out of these lemmons. From what I can see, they are alt least to be commended for repecting their colleague enough to vote against tabling. The all still voted against debating the resolution and forcing the Republicans to go on record as defending Cheney.


As far as I am concerned voting to send it BACK to committee was just a more respectful way of tabling impeachment.


Peace,
