Fun fact of the day: according to this post,
An ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted April 6-9 showed that 33% of Americans currently support impeaching President Bush; coincidentally, only a similar amount supported impeaching Nixon at the start of the Watergate investigation.
More interestingly, we may soon see impeachment proceedings even though the Republicans control Congress. From the same site,
Representative Karen A. Yarbrough of Illinois’ 7th District… stumbled on a little known and never utlitized rule of the US House of Representatives… which allows federal impeachment proceedings to be initiated by joint resolution of a state legislature.
There is currently such a resolution pending in her state. Another one in California calls for the impeachment of both Bush and Cheney.
Sure, this is partisan politics, but when the top officials are blithely committing felonies, something ought to be done. It’ll be interesting to see if anything comes of this.
