71. I will never understand your passion for this
because I find it illogical. I hope you won't take that as an insult. It is not intended to be. However, I don't see what Cindy and those who are bashing Conyers hope to accomplish. It's like going on a nature walk and saying "this forest would be lovely except for all the trees blocking my view."

I think several of the most adamant impeachment supporters have turned a good idea into a witch hunt. Barks of McCarthy-ism to me. When people like me point out that maybe we shouldn't throw Conyers under the bus just yet the impeachment now supporters tell me that Conyers has gone back on his word because he wont wave his magical +2 Wand of Impeachment and make impeachment become reality instantly. Or they wave the Constitution around like Conyers is busy wiping his ass with it after taking a post enchilada dump while conveniently forgetting the fact that this man has been on our side a HELL of a lot longer than any of the current sacred cows we've constructed (Cindy, CodePink, et. al.)

Conyers position, to me, is a very logical one. We don't have the votes. For the impeachment crusaders, this doesn't seem to matter. Conyers has been in the trenches for our side for a very long time and to toss all that aside because he won't immediately get behind your crusade is...well, it seems selfish to me.

I understand your passion. I think you're aiming it at the wrong person.
