Business as usual

By Michael J. Smith on Saturday April 21, 2007 07:52 AM

From the No Comment Needed department:

Declaring that the Bush administration's actions in foreign and domestic affairs raise "serious questions of constitutionality," Vermont state senators voted yesterday to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney in what officials say was the first such vote by state lawmakers in the country.

Without debate, the Democratic-controlled Senate voted 16 to 9 in favor of the nonbinding resolution, which urges US Representative Peter Welch, a Democrat, to introduce a resolution in the House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings.

Vermont's congressional delegation, which includes Welch and Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, promptly rejected the call.

the congo dems didn't torch
this mental pimple's pop
over the S&L scandal
neck deep in the corporate cash thank us

Ah! I'm inspired to write the dp a new slogan:

The Democratic Party: Let a million nonbinding resolutions bloom!

I'll expect my check to arrive in four-to-six weeks.
