Bush Impeachment Update

House votes to move Kucinich articles to judiciary committee.

CNN reports this as a move that is designed to kill impeachment-- certainly Dem leadership (Pelosi et al) do not want impeachment. Words fail me in describing how fucked up Pelosi is in this regard. Talk about a fake opposition Democrat!

Optimistically, this could be a good move, as it will allow the judiciary committee to collect evidence, and the threat of bringing impeachment to the floor can be used for some leverage against Bush. Certainly, impeachment probably would have died if sent to the floor for a straight up vote, so this isn't so bad-- in a relative sense.

Meanwhile, 89% of people in this MSNBC poll think Bush should be impeached (almost 700,000 responses).
