For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: House punts on impeachment:
The House has voted to send articles of impeachment against President Bush to a committee that is not likely to hold hearings before the end of his term. By 251-166, House members dispatched the measure to a committee on Wednesday — a procedure often used to kill legislation.
What was this nonsense all about? Is this just an extension of Bush Derangement Syndrome, or a reflection of just how lost the Democrats are? After all, with gas prices over $4/gallon, and the new leadership now having gone 17 months without proposing energy legislation to deal with the crisis despite campaign promises to do so, did they really need to spend days talking about this? Is this more reflective of their intellectual bankruptcy or their devotion to their supporters on the ultra-left that love this foolishness?
