Kooky Kucinich and his impeachment idiocy

When will this clown learn? Dennis Kucinich has, once again, filed an impeachment resolution against President Bush. As Ben Pershing at the WaPo notes the Democrats don't want to go down this road:

The House is set to vote this afternoon on whether to refer articles of impeachment against President Bush to the Judiciary Committee, where they are unlikely to see any further action during this Congress.

impeachment resolution -- accusing Bush of manufacturing a case for war in Iraq, among other charges -- was introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday. Kucinich himself read all 35 articles into the Congressional Record on the House floor that night, a process that took nearly five hours. The second reading, which is required under House rules, was performed by House reading clerks on Tuesday night. In both cases, the readings kept the chamber in session past midnight.

The office of House Majority Leader
Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) says this afternoon's vote to send the resolution to Judiciary is expected to occur around 4 p.m. EDT, though there is a small chance the vote could happen closer to 1 p.m., when the chamber will be voting on an Amtrak bill.

Democratic leaders have
made clear that they have no desire to impeach Bush, nor do they want the Judiciary panel to hold hearings on Kucinich's measure. Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) has so far not commented on his plans, though the resolution has picked up one cosponsor: Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), a Judiciary member.

"A decision by Congress to pursue impeachment is not an option, it is a sworn duty,"
Wexler said. "It is time for Congress to stand up and defend the Constitution against the blatant violations and illegalities of this administration."

Give me a break already. The Democrat leaders know that to push for impeachment in an election year is going to devastate their chances this November. Kucinich is about as bright as a burned-out lightbulb. He's personally set on a mission to cut off the party's nose to spite its face. Besides, even Jay Rockefeller couldn't make a solid case that President Bush lied. Fred Hiatt, also from the WaPo, slapped Rockefeller around like a rag doll in his piece on Monday.

This fiasco is beginning to get a bit old; stale as an Eddie Murphy routine watched a hundred times too many. Personally, when this effort fails -- and it will -- we think it's time to have Kucinich formally reprimanded for this asinine behavior. At the very least, he should be reprimanded for wasting taxpayer's time and money on a fool's errand.

This is what happens when one side caves to it's moonbat base. They've been waiting to see Bush tossed out of office since 2000, and the war -- including ALL of the intelligence failures -- has given them a false hope for getting this accomplished. Get over it already. He's not going to be impeached. You have no case for impeachment. You never did, and you never will. And the only thing the Democrats accomplish by letting the "little troll that could" keep up this malarkey is to make themselves look like a bigger punchline than they were before. It's desperate and pathetic to keep trying.
