    The House is so overwhelmingly GOP... What would be the point?
    •  The point (3.93)
      doesn't have to be to remove Bush from office.  

      The point is that impeaching a president is an instant front page news story on every newspaper in America, along with a discussion of all of the reasons why.  The point is to make Americans realize that it's not all cream and roses here and that a lot of shit is going on under their noses.  The point is to let Bush and his administration know that we're not going to sit by idly while he breaks the law with impunity.

      There are probably a lot of other points too, but those three will do.

      •  Absolutely agree (none)
        Even the MSM could not ignore this, and would force a discussion of reasons for it.

        Much better now when the information is fresh, rather than later IF the House tips Democrat.  Otherwise, it's acceptance and just one more blow.  At some point a stand needs to be taken.

        This would seem to be the point...

        Stand! You've been sitting much too long, there's a permanent crease in your right & wrong...

      •  They would just say (none)
        It's them liberals again...
      •  Like the Contested Vote? (none)
        You mean kind of like Barbara Boxer's contest of the vote in 2005 that the mainstream media just couldn't ignore because of it's historical significance?  That one was supposed to blow the media lid on vote fraud.

        Never underestimate the mainstream media.

        But do not reject these teaching as false because I am crazy. The reason that I am crazy is because they are true.

        •  Oops! (none)
          Hehe.  That should have read:  "Never overestimate the mainstream media."

            the first time.

            never underestimate their power to control the context in which news appears, and so maintain a facade even while the house behind it has collapsed.

            Sweet are the uses of misery.
