Big Jerry's salon makes no case for impeachment
« on: February 01, 2008, 08:19:02 AM »

Well, damn.

I got all hot and excited about the "impeachment forum" in Big Jerry's salon, thinking we were finally going to get an idea of the high crimes and misdemeanors, such as perjury, that George Bush is alleged to have committed, plus some hard-core reliable infallible evidence.

I finally went to that forum this morning, getting ready to sit down for some real meat-and-potatoes stuff.....and got only whipped cream.

This is a typical original post from there:

 Update: One Step Closer to a Cheney Impeachment


One Step Closer to a Cheney Impeachment

By Marjorie Cohn, AlterNet. Posted January 23, 2008.

More than a third of the House Judiciary Committee's Democratic members want to see Cheney ousted.

Nine out of 23 Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee favor starting impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney. Six of the nine are co-sponsors of H.R. 799, which contains three articles of impeachment.

Seventy percent of American voters think Cheney has abused his powers and 43 percent say he should be removed from office, according to a Nov. 13 poll by the American Research Group. Organizations, including the National Lawyers Guild, have called for the impeachment of Dick Cheney.

Impeachment hearings against Cheney would not only fulfill the Constitution's command that high officials who commit high crimes and misdemeanors be brought to justice. It would also deter the vice president from committing additional crimes that threaten the national security of the United States.

Any impeachment proceeding would have to start in the House Judiciary Committee. The nine Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee who favor impeachment hearings are: Robert Wexler, Fla.; Luis Gutierrez, Ill.; Anthony Weiner, N.Y.; Tammy Baldwin, Wis.; Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas; Steve Cohen, Tenn.; Keith Ellison, Minn.; Maxine Waters, Calif.; and Hank Johnson, Ga.

Here is a list of the entire House Judiciary Committee: For information about the campaign to impeach Dick Cheney, see


I still think the cows will come home, Hell will freeze over, and the Rock of Gibraltar will have been eroded to nothing by the wing of a butterfly brushing against it once every million years, before we learn details of any specific high crimes and misdemeanors committed by George Bush and Richard Cheney.

I don't know why the customers in Big Jerry's salon won't just tell us; time's running out, and George Bush and Richard Cheney will soon be flying away to comfortable and honorable retirements, with the good wishes and affection from decent civilized people.
