In what will now surely be a grand tradition of every American president fending off attacks of impeachment late in his or her second term, Rep. Dennis Kucinich is having his say today in a hearing for the House Judiciary Committee.
And it's drawing quite a crowd, hungry to see this moment in American infamy…
A boisterous crowd has already gathered for today's hearing in the House Judiciary Committee on the case for impeaching Presidnent Bush and Vice President Cheney.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) has been leading the charge on the issue, and although Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) have said there will be no formal impeachment hearings, they've given Kucinich and his allies a session today to make the case.
There are at least 100 people on line to attend the hearing, and the committee has announced that there will be two "overflow" rooms to accomodate everyone who wants to watch the proceedings.
Phenomenal! It's exactly the circus everybody was hoping it would be.
I can't imagine a better political move for the Democrats than to enter into a petty and useless endeavor like this with only half-a-year left in Bush's second term.
That's why we elected 'em!
