Go, Dennis, go

From today's WaPo:
Having failed in efforts to impeach Vice President Cheney, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio) escalated his battle against the administration this week by introducing 35 articles of impeachment against President Bush, using a parliamentary maneuver that will probably force a vote today.

Read it all here.
The effort will fail, of course. Although the Ds were clearly given the Congress in '06 because of displeasure with the Iraq invasion and occupation, Dem leadership shunned the idea of impeachment, and the situation continues as it was before the mid-term election with talk afoot of an occupation going on for an indefinite time into the future. Defending himself against impeachment proceedings might keep W from further mischief -- like maybe bombing Iran -- until we are finally shed of him.
