Dennis “Aliens on the Brain” Kucinich (Rep-Dim, Ohio), darling of the dingbat wing of the Democrat party, thereby the Democrat intellectually and idealistically best suited to lead his party, tried to fulfill one of my fondest dreams, but other not-quite-as-nutty Democrats were spoil sports.
Actually, my dream was that Democrats try to impeach Bush/Cheney (see my Please Try to Impeach President Bush blog post back in January), but Democrats being natural and chronic underachievers, all Kucinich could do was to try to impeach Vice President Cheney.
Republicans, sensing a grand opportunity to let the Democrats showcase their huge lunatic element, voted along with Kucinich to bring his impeachment charges to the House floor. Democrat leaders, who long have promised their most ardent supporters just such an assault on Bush/Cheney, did a remarkable Keystone Cops imitation, stumbling all over each other in a mad rush to prevent an impeachment debate from reaching the House floor.
Thereby breaking their nutty supporters’ hearts, and mine too.
