Impeach Bush’ — Not Just for Bumper Stickers Anymore

It's far more likely that Rep. Dennis Kucinich will see another UFO than see his new impeachment effort succeed
Proving that he's not one to be outdone by the colorful rear end of some 1997 Volvo station wagon, Congressman (and first-ever Venutian-American to run for president) Dennis Kucinich has filed articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush.
The Sun-Sentinel adds that Kucinich's bill charges the President with the "Illegal use of torture during interrogation, the authorization of a warrantless wiretapping program on American citizens."
Now, I'm against the use of torture, starting with the fact that as Americans, we're supposed to be better than that.
But when a total of three non-Geneva-protected prisoners, in a raging war zone, were threatened with fake drowning for a total of less than a minute, and valuable intelligence was obtained… well, that's not exactly up there with Jimmy Carter's abandonment of 52 American hostages to the likes of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 1979.
But what about the current Democratic majority in Congress? Couldn't they make Bush election issue by holding hearing on Kucinich's false charges all through the summer and fall? Not likely. The Politico's John Bresnahan reports that even San Francisco's Nancy Pelosi has stated flatly that impeachment is "off the table."
And Dennis Kucinich is off his rocker for hoping otherwise.
