Please God don't let this be an April Fool prank...

Disclaimer: I got all excited when I read the following, but while I was doing my actual thinking for the day and reading my Old Farmer's Almanac, I remembered what day it is. Take this with a grain of salt until it proves out, but pray it's so.

From Jurassicpork with links to his sources:

WASHINGTON – The first article of impeachment against President George W. Bush was passed by the House Judiciary Committee in an emergency special session late Saturday (my em). The article appears to have been prompted by new evidence that the FBI had abused its power under the direction of the president, who had blocked further investigations into the matter. Each of the thirty nine members of the committee seemingly voted along party lines on the measure, which passed by a vote of 22-17.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) has issued a statement on the allegations being brought forth; though a full disclosure on the charges of "high crimes and misdemeanors" against the president will be made available to the public during a Monday press conference scheduled at 11AM EST.

Yes, it's finally coming true. The reason this hasn't made the papers yet is because the House Judiciary Committee was up so late drafting the articles of impeachment that the morning editions have already been put to bed. And the talking bobbleheads on tne Sunday morning circuit are either blissfully unaware of it or are ignoring it.

But it's true. It's all true, people. Even if we can't get enough votes in the Senate to convict by impeachment, which unfortunately sounds likely, the House just writing up the articles of impeachment is a huge vote of no confidence from the House. Once this story breaks and spreads, the people will see it and it will be the beginning of a new attitude against the fascist fuck squatting in the West Wing.

Stay tuned as developments come in. I gotta go and buy a bottle of bubbly.

I have nothing more to say about this until we find out if it's for real.
