MONTPELIER, Vt. Apr 20, 2007 (AP)— Vermont senators voted Friday to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, saying their actions have raised “serious questions of constitutionality.”

The nonbinding resolution was approved 16-9 without debate all six Republicans in the chamber at the time and three Democrats voted against it.


Update:  Found another WP blogger lookin’ at the Cheney angle:  Scholars and Rogues PING! …looks like a good one for the blogroll too


You Don’t Need To Be Saying That, Harry

April 20, 2007

When it comes to saying “We Lost”, I’m one of those people that believes, from a certain point of view, that we ‘lost’ the minute we stepped foot in that country.  That being said, and the situation being what it is, I’m still not sure if it’s the wisest thing for someone like Harry Reid to use that word specifically.  Why don’t these guys use words like “We tried”, or at least try to declare victory like the Brits?    I mean, Saddam is dead, we got the WMD’s, they’re ‘sovereign’…There are a lot of better ways to describe the need to do a cost/benefit analysis of the situation and declare the need to pull our troops out, if that’s what the situation really calls for. 


If the Middle East wants to think we’ve ‘lost’ because we’re pulling troops out, fine.  Not much we can do about that.  But you don’t have to tell them.  Jeez.
