Enough already
For the love of God and all that's holy, it's time to impeach the preznit -- and Bush also.

This administration has not just let Americans down; it has frightened them. A great many understand, intuitively or explicitly, that we are experiencing a constitutional crisis and that impeachment proceedings are the proper tonic. Unfortunately, key Democrats continue to mistake the medicine for the disease.

Nancy Pelosi still keeps impeachment "off the table"; she and her advisers fear that if they allow Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers to open impeachment hearings, it will rally the Republican base in defense of Bush and Cheney. History suggests she's wrong: Opposition parties that have pursued impeachment in a high-minded manner have, in every instance, maintained or improved their position in Congress and have usually won the presidency in the next election.

Pelosi should step out of the way and let her colleagues restore the rule of law.

Indeed. From a John Nichols op-ed.

Why do they hate America?
