Getting hotter for Bush, nastier in Congress... 

The fact that this article appeared on Yahoo! is a good sign:

Amid new questions about President Bush' drive to topple Saddam Hussein, several House Democrats urged lawmakers on Thursday to conduct an official inquiry to determine whether the president intentionally misled Congress.

Well, of course Bush planned to invade Iraq regardless. Iraq was in compliance with the UN and switching its oil-for-sale currency to the Euro. But what's interesting about this Yahoo! article is that mainstream reporters are finally starting to notice (or at least note) the rancor and disdain that Republicans treat anyone--from House Dems to the lower 95% of Americans by wealth--who dares question them. Some tidbits of interest from the Yahoo! article:

The Democratic congressmen were relegated to a tiny room in the bottom of the Capitol and the Republicans who run the House scheduled 11 major votes to coincide with the afternoon event.

This is of course true, and reported by Yahoo! as such. What is interesting is that finally a mainstream media source is stating the fact that the Republicans are STILL trying to manipulate everything. 11 major votes? That's puerile and petty. Since Conyers was organizing the event, maybe they should have reviewed the election irregularities in Ohio during the last Presidential "election" so as to have him absent (more on that in a later blog--read "What went wrong in Ohio" if you want to bone up).

Misleading Congress is an impeachable offense...

This is true. So is faking a Pentagon attack, staging the demolition of World Trade Center building 7 (if not the Twin Towers themselves), underreporting the true number of US war dead (Salon.com notes it is probably over 5000 already), lying about economic indicators, being wired for all three debates, stealing two elections, diverting American tax dollars to Halliburton, it goes on and on...impeachment is just the start. Once he's out of the reins of power, it's time for him to do time.

But the Yahoo! article anticipates this...

John Bonifaz, a lawyer and co-founder of a new group called AfterDowningStreet.org, said the lack of interest by congressional Republicans in the Downing Street memo is like Congress during Nixon's presidency saying "we don't want" the Watergate tapes.

Touche. Maybe Deep Throat's outing was a sign of things to come.
