Led by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, the long-shot anti-war candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, scores of Democrats were joined by scores of Republicans in initially supporting a Kucinich resolution that would have prompted a full debate on impeaching Cheney.
While it seems many Democrats are still running around as castrated fools, thank god the Republicans were able to give Kucinich theirs. It looks like Dennis’ impeachment resolution will at least be discussed in committee, after the castrated Dems failed at tabling his resolution indefinitely.
The Republican voted against tabling the motion because they wanted it discussed in front of the full congress. Geeze, if only we had some Democrats with that can do attitude. But no, voting to censure a truth telling Democratic congressman is entirely acceptable, but voting to impeach a back stabbing, constitution burning, freedom hating, CIA outing, citizen spying Vice president is intolerable.
Every time I turn around the Democrats are becoming more and more pathetic. I am just holding my breath. Tomorrow the Peru Free (Not) Trade Agreement comes up for a vote, will the Democrats sell out one more time, or will they grow some balls.
