Even though the last time around he voted against his own measure, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Moonbattia) is vowing to fight on with more articles of impeachment against President Bush if he has to in order to get Congress to ‘act.’ Via Mary Ann Akers at WaPo’s “Sleuth” blog:
Kucinich tells us he’s giving the House Judiciary Committee 30 days to act on his resolution proposing 35 articles of impeachment against President Bush or else he’ll raise even more hell on the House floor. Thirty-five articles was just the tip of the iceberg. If Judiciary does nothing, he’ll go back to the House floor next month armed with nearly twice as many articles.
“The minute the leadership said ‘this is dead on arrival’ I said that I hope they believe in life after death; because I’m coming back with it,” Kucinich vowed in an interview with the Sleuth this week. “It’s not gonna die. Because I’ll come back with more articles. Not 35, but perhaps 60 articles.”
But before he stages Night of the Living Impeachment Part II in the House chamber, the former presidential candidate says he’ll meet with House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) this week to try to convince him to consider just one little article of impeachment against Bush for waging a war “based on lies.” Take one, any one, Chairman Conyers, but please – just take one!
“It only takes one of the 35 articles to establish an impeachable offense,” Kucinich explains.
And here is Kucinich’s ultimate impeachment fantasy: “What I would hope for, is that if articles of impeachment are forwarded to the Senate against the president, that the vice president would understand that he will come under scrutiny too, and that he would resign so that the president could appoint someone who could take his office if he were forced to leave.”

Go Dennis Go! Keep putting your fellow Dems in the hot seat . It’s a “debate” conservatives certainly welcome. As I’ve said before, if Dems really do believe Bush is a war criminal, why not perform their duty in holding the Executive Branch accountable for their “crimes”?
C’mon, Dems. You know you want to.
