Darth Cheney Impeachment Hot Potato
Dennis Kucinich leading peacenick UFO crazy person started the proceedings - and then the Republicans jumped up in a Parlementary procedure right out of some Frat house voted "yea" to embarrass the crap out of the Dems.
By supporting the resolution it was supposed to prompt a full debate on impeaching Cheney. Repubs gleefully said they wanted the debate to show the public how many Democrats would actually support impeaching Cheney, which they consider a move supported only by a fringe element of anti-war activists.
Rather than allow a debate fraught with political risk, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) moved to send the Kucinich resolution to the Judiciary Committee, whose chairman, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), has publicly speculated about impeaching the president or vice president but has declined taking any action since taking the gavel in January.
With any luck, this will take up the rest of the year, and that'll keep them from doing any real damage to the country.
Meanwhile, on board his Super Star Destroyer Secret Bunker chair, Darth Cheney's laughter over his personal breathing apperatus was slightly audible.
