Bill introduced to impeach Bush

Even though it's not considered to go anywhere and is merely seen as a symbolic act by an outgoing Democrat, Georgia representative Cynthia McKinney has expressed the will of a majority of Americans;
McKinney... has long insisted that Bush was never legitimately elected. In introducing her legislation in the final hours of the current Congress, she said Bush had violated his oath of office to defend the Constitution and the nation's laws.
In the bill, she accused Bush of misleading Congress on the war in Iraq and violating privacy laws with his domestic spying program.
McKinney has made no secret of her frustration with Democratic leaders since voters ousted her from office in the Democratic primary this summer. In a speech Monday at George Washington University, she accused party leaders of kowtowing to Republicans on the war in Iraq and on military mistreatment of prisoners.

The ladies over at Is America Burning have given the pros and cons to impeachment a fair hearing, even though they themselves support impeaching Bush:
>...apparently there is another side of the impeachment story. I am always willing to hear both sides of an issue. Sometimes patience is required. After all, we have nearly 2 years to investigate, gain solid proof to present to the citizens and then hit them like a ton of bricks. And hopefully, expose all the neocon rats (and predecessors) that helped construct the monstrosity that this administration has become

There's one thought preventing me from asking for Bush to resign: President Dick Cheney.

Let Shrub become destitute for the next two years. I want to see him become unkempt like that other Texas president LBJ until he's evicted from the White House in January, 2009.

Mckinney's bill included both Cheney and Rice.
Initiating the impeachment process will lead to an investigation that will implicate lots of people in the Bush administration who are guilty of committing crimes, including Cheney.

In addition, no matter who we get to replace Bush, we’ll be showing those in power that anyone who breaks the law will be held accountable.

Impeach for Peace has created holiday impeachment cards that allow your friends and family to initiate the impeachment process. Deck the halls of congress with colorful impeachment petitions! Now that Representative McKinney has introduced Articles of Impeachment to Congress, it's time for us to show the other Members of Congress our support. So, Impeach for Peace created the Holiday Impeachment image, and researched a company that will allow you to send jumbo sized postcards along with a personalized message using your web browser. To learn more about this method of inititiating impeachment, go to: http://ImpeachForPeace.org/HolidayImpeachNow.html

Soon, Santa will be delivering sacks and sacks of mail to Nancy Pelosi initiating impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635). What better gift to give this holiday season than the restoration of our democracy? Truly the gift that keeps on giving. Over this past year, Bush has become an even greater threat to our Constitution. Lucky for us, the rules of the US House of Representatives allow for individual citizens like you and I to initiate the impeachment process directly! This process was successfully used to impeach in the past.

Be a part of history and have a merry impeachment this season!

I'd be happier to impeach them both. Just think - President Pelosi!!

Thanks for the link. In fairness to my co-blogger, that was all her. Not that I disagree but it was her post.

I agree both should go, but Pelosi's ties to AIPAC make her unfit for the presidency.
(PS: Ingrid, thanks for your concern!!!!! I'm back after a hiatus of sorts- love, Z)
