Impeachment is in the House

This is the day I've been waiting for since before the last elections: The Lunatic Wing of the Democratic Party is feeling sufficiently empowered to introduce an impeachment resolution in the House.

OK, I admit it's not to impeach Bush. That's a real disappointment. It's only Dick Cheney, because, you know, you can't just go and impeach Bush first if that would make Cheney president.

And I realize it's only Dennis Kucinich, D-Fruitcake, who introduced it and currently has no co-sponsors.

Here's the text of the resolution. Kucinich delayed his press conference because of reports that Cheney was having emergency medical treatment for his blood clot. It turned out to be routine.

He ended up holding the press conference late Tuesday afternoon. Did you know that his resolution was "deeply researched"? Did you realize it's "not . . . partisan"? If you didn't, you should thank me for actually reading the transcript.

A reporter at the press conference (do they get paid extra to attend these things?) told Kucinich he had spoken to Nancy Pelosi, who said this was going nowhere. Which is really a big disappointment to me. Come on, Nancy, make our day!
