One Down, Forty-Nine To Go

You know, I've always loved cheddar cheese. Maple syrup. Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Mountains. All the great resources of the state of Vermont.

But who knew I'd one day appreciate Vermont for their political initiative?

Well, brudders and sistas, that day is here.

The Vermont Senate calls for the impeachment of Bush!


People talk a lot of game on the subject of The Decider in Chief (myself included), but bless those Vermontians who strapped on their Birkenstocks and marched down to their senator's office (or put on their Birkenstocks and then got online to send their senator an email) to get the ball rolling!

Sure, it's a non-binding agreement, but let's just enjoy this for a few minutes, okay?

Check out the full story HERE. And here's a little blurb to whet your apetitite:

Vermont senators voted Friday to call for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, saying their actions in Iraq and the U.S. "raise serious questions of constitutionality."

The non-binding resolution was approved 16-9 without debate -- all six Republicans in the chamber at the time and three Democrats voted against it. The resolution was the latest, symbolic, effort in the state to impeach Bush. In March, 40 towns in the state known for its liberal leaning voted in favor of similar, non-binding resolutions at their annual meetings. State lawmakers in Wisconsin and Washington have also pushed for similar resolutions.

The resolution says Bush and Cheney's actions in the U.S. and abroad, including in Iraq, "raise serious questions of constitutionality, statutory legality, and abuse of the public trust."

I know it may not look like it, but this is a veritable maelstrom of political activity!
