Impeachment Watch Update
I've kind of been covering the kooky impeachment crowd on an ad-hoc basis, but I'm going to cover it more extensively in the next couple of weeks here.
As many of you are aware, Cindy Sheehan has been pushing impeachment for the last several month. In fact, its the whole basis for her run for Congress against Nancy Pelosi. But somebody should tell her that even if she wins, she'll be too late; Bush will leave office just as she's entering it.
Cindy has also recently aligned
herself with the 9-11 "Truth" Movement.
Scott Ritter (yes, that Scott Ritter) wrote an article
recently decrying the "Impeach Now" crowd and using a very good analogy.
The “impeach now” crowd reminds me of a football coach, late in a season which has produced only loss after loss, imploring his team to throw a “Hail Mary” pass over and over again, all the while suffering sack after sack of its quarterback as the offensive line fails to effectively block and the receivers fail to get open. The season is lost, and instead of pursuing futile and ineffective tactics designed to produce a meaningless score, the coach would be better off seeking to return to the basics so that his team might perform better next season. Only when the basics of blocking, tackling, running and ball handling are mastered can one expect to mount a campaign designed to produce a winning season.
Of course, aligning yourself with the "Truthers" is the ultimate Hail Mary pass. "We can't get the Democrats to impeach on anything else, so let's try using this crackpot theory that the Bush administration pulled off 9-11. It won't work, but we've got nothing to lose by trying!"
