47. Among the things wrong with that...
Edited on Thu Dec-06-07 09:39 AM by JHB
1) This Guliani business is crap: Congress has to approve a VP appointment. That's why Nixon chose Ford: The Democratic leadership back then told Dickie that he was the only Republican who'd get approval from Congress.

2) Conyers is apparently sniffing the Washington Insider Coke that thinks this would be just like the Clinton impeachment, not quite getting that Clinton went up in popularity despite a failed impeachment proceeding because everyone outside Washngton knew what bullshit the case against him was. It wasn't over matters of governance or abuse of state power. Not the case with Bush: it's ALL about matters of governance or abuse of state power -- of the highest order.

Laying out the case against Clinton only showed how thin it was behind all the smoke and mirrors. Laying out the cases against Bush would spotlight the mountain hiding behine the same fogbank.

"Don't have the votes"? Horseshit! You put together the case against Bush and Cheny in all its ugly detail and Republicans will bail on him in an eyeblink, at least enough to convict, and the rest will go down with him.
