Rep. Kucinich has introduced a resolution for the impeachment of Vice President Richard B. Cheney

You may know already, but just in case you missed it, as I did, Mr. Dennis Kucinich has introduced House Resolution 333, which calls for the impeachment and removal from office of Mr. Cheney, the US vice president. The resolution was introduced in April.

Mr. Cheney, according to the resolution, misled Congress in various ways as the Iraq war approached. He has also made belligerent statements against Iran, which are against  US law in terms of the treaties it has signed as part of  membership  in  the  United  Nations.

Information on the resolution may be found on Kucinich's congressional web site, http://kucinich.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=63379, although I have not yet been able to find a list of co-sponsors, if any exist. I support this resolution, and will write Nancy Pelosi and other congressional officials recommending support. How about you?

By the way, the Associated Press, the government news agency that poses as an independent news gathering organization, has reported that, in a poll by the American Research Group, 45 percent favored impeachment of Bush, while 46 percent opposed it. For Mr. Cheney, 54 supported impeachment while 40 percent opposed it. I guess there are just some things AP can't supress without blowing its cover.

P.S.
I recommend Rosie O'Donnell's site.
http://www.rosie.com/ She has a great list of stuff that is all very interesting. Right now there is a campaign in the media to blacklist her because she is against the war and supports further investigations into 9-11. O'Reilly of Fox's "O'Reilly Factor" is the leader of this movement. You probably know that she resigned from her show, and may soon get a slot on another network. I was not particularly interested in Rosie in the past, although one day a year or two ago I was doing research downtown NYC, and happened to run into her coming down the steps of the courthouse. She made a speech, had a good presence and was articulate. I took a few pictures, which I don't have access to right now, as they are in deep storage (a crashed hard drive and CD's in physical storage far from where I am now).

It was only upon seeing O'Reilly land into her that I realized what a courageous stand she had taken on both the Iraq War and 9-11.
