Big Dog was so right

you have to get this movie

Bad news Folks

Sorry to break the news. But Pelosi, Dean, and now John Conyers, have all agreed. there are to be no investigations into the possibility of impeachable offenses. This should concern all you die hard Democrats. The only thing holding Conyers back was, he said, the Republican Majority. He even went so far as to hold unofficial hearings in the BASEMENT of the congress.

Now, on the marching orders of his party, he will become part of the cover up. This despite his statements last December:
Now on to the Report and what I plan to do about it. In sum, the report examines the Bush Administration's actions in taking us to war from A to Z. The report finds there is substantial evidence the President, the Vice-President and other high ranking members of the Bush Administration misled Congress and the American people regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq; misstated and manipulated intelligence information regarding the justification for such war; countenanced torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in Iraq; and permitted inappropriate retaliation against critics of their Administration.

The Report concludes that a number of these actions amount to prima facie evidence (evidence sufficiently strong to presume the allegations are true) that federal criminal laws have been violated. Legal violations span from false statements to Congress to whistleblower laws...
First, I have introduced a resolution (H. Res. 635) creating a Select Committee with subpoena authority to investigate the misconduct of the Bush Administration with regard to the Iraq war and report on possible impeachable offenses.
Second, I have introduced Resolutions regarding both President Bush (H. Res. 636) and Vice-President Cheney (H. Res. 637) proposing that they be censured by Congress based on the uncontroverted evidence already on the record and their failure to respond to Congressional and public inquiries about these matters and have never accounted for their many specific misstatements in the run up to War

And what do the American people think:
87% think that the door to impeachment should indeed be open.
I guess sending the Dems to investigate the Republicans is like sending the Genovese family to look into the actions of the Columbo family. Surely they will find rackets but they're more interested in taking over the racket than they are in ending the corruption.
