Hold Your Fire Til You See The Whites Of Their Eyes

Vermont is joining Illinois and California in using a little known regulation to force the House of Reps to initiate impeachment hearings against the executive branch. This is good news for us in Massachusetts. We started the last American Revolution and it would be nice to be able to sit this one out. Start one revolutionary war and it's maybe forgivable. Start two and suddenly Massachusetts is always the trouble maker. Then every time a revolutionary war needs starting everyone is suddenly looking at us waiting to see what we do. We won't have the luxury of standing around whistling with our hands burrowing through our pockets the next time trouble brews. We'll have to meet for grog at The Green Dragon Tavern every two hundred and thrity years and debate what we should do about King George or President George or in 2236 The Supreme Ruler of the Inner Solar System George.* It's nice that we can focus the energy of The Commonwealth to more local needs. It's not like we don't have problems of our own to deal with.

* I hear he's been using the War on Ionian Terror as an excuse for reading our brainwave leakeage without a warrant from the Supreme Council of Sentient Computers.

Impeachment will only help if you impeach everyone in the chain. Get rid of "W" and in steps "Dick", and Dick is running things already anyway, IMO.

Do cabinet members get impeached? Rumsfeld also need to be tossed out on his arrogant ass.

All this action can do is compell Congress to initiate impeachment hearings. As in the Clinton hearings, there's no reason to suspect that the outcome will actually result in regime change. It's an empty threat that the states in question can exercise during an election cycle and help distance themselves from 6 years of failure to actually address the fundimental problems in the Bush administration. Those state reps can rest assured that their hollow gesture of too little too late haven't gone un-noticed by some of us.
