Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has announced that he will delay the introduction of Articles of Impeachment against Vice President Richard Cheney, originally scheduled for noon today. The change came on account of the Vice President's hospital visit this morning.
Shit. Sounds like they got to Denny. That's probably the last we'll hear about it.
*That's how women take a leak. Another way of calling a guy a wussie.
Today is 'Gordon backtracks' day. Raw Story:
After a series of delays, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), a candidate for president in 2008, announced a series of charges against Vice President Dick Cheney in Washington, DC, late in the day. Kucinich alleged that the Vice President had committed a series of impeachable offenses, and he was therefore introducing Articles of Impeachment against Cheney in the Congress today.
A reporter asked Kucinich why the Vice President should be impeached, and not President George W. Bush.
"There is a very practical reason - each and every charge relates to Vice President Cheney's conduct or misconduct in office," he said. But he added, "It is very important that we start with Mr. Cheney because if we were to start with the President, Mr. Cheney would then become president.
He also noted, "We'd have to go through the constitutional agony of impeaching two presidents consecutively."
The full Articles themselves, a large collection of PDF documents, are accessible at Congressman Kucinich's website.
I apologize for calling Mr. Kucinich a wussie.
