It's about friggn' time.

Finally, somebody (even the elfin Kucinich) filed SOME sort of impeachment paperwork.
Excerpt: Let me cite from the articles of impeachment that were introduced this afternoon, Article I, that Richard Cheney had purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and the Congress of the United States by fabricating a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to justify the use of the United States armed forces against the nation of Iraq in a manner damaging to our national security.
(Supporting documents are here)

Going after Cheney is first is a good move. If they went after Bush first, then Cheney would be president and well, THAT would be scary. And if they went after Bush and Cheney together, well, that would just be unwieldy.

But, as much as this is mildly satisfying on a partisan level, I have to wonder A) what took so long and B) why did he wait until so close to the 6 o'clock news cycle. Had he done it at 4pm or so, it may have made the news. I didn't watch the news last night (sometimes, I just can't stomach it) Was it mentioned?

I just looked at the CNN homepage: No mention of it
ABC homepage: nada
MSNBC: zilch
CBS: whoa, nothing
FOX: no surprise, but I had to look.

OK. So articles of impeachment have been presented to Congress against the Vice President of the United States of America and NONE of the major news outlets have it on the homepages?! Even if just from an historical perspective IT'S A BIG STORY.

Now I'm getting angry.

If there was any illusion or delusion that the media gave a flying crap about anything, it's gone. Those guys are useless. USELESS. How on god's green earth could they not even have a MENTION of it on their HOMEPAGES?!


Call you congresscritter and tell that idiot that if they don't vote "yes" on impeachment that you will sell your house to fund whomever runs against them that says they would've voted yes. Then contact the media and tell them that if they don't start talking about it, you'll stop watching and start a boycott of their advertisers.

um. . . science news that in the long run affects the future of humanity might be a little more significant than articles of impeachment that (1) aren't going anywhere beyond getting Kucinich a little news and (2) even if they did would have a tiny impact on human history considering Cheney no longer has much power and will be almost out of office by the time they would go anywhere. It's great Kucinich is challenging Cheney, but . . . perspective.
