Impeach This!

May 23rd, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

We reprinted below a open letter the Blue Girl/Red State blog posted to Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver. There is an old saying that is timeless and fitting for our friends on the left wing of the blogosphere. The proverb is “don’t cut of your nose to spite your face.”

Their incessant clamor for the impeachment of the president and vice president is juvenile, knee jerk, and illustrates a total non comprehension of the dynamics of politics. What sense would it make impeaching a president who is a lame duck and who has less than two years in his term? We’re already a deeply divided nation, is impeaching Bush and Cheney the answer to healing our nation?

The rabid left throws around impeachment like a meter maid writing tickets in a one of our major cities. Enough already! It ain’t going to happen. The Democratic Party doesn’t want it. Your senator doesn’t want it. And most important, the country doesn’t want it!

An Open Letter to Congressman Cleaver (and every sitting congresscritter, for that fact)

Congressman Cleaver;

I know I am a pain-in-the-ass constituent. I admit that freely – wear it as a badge of honor, in fact.

I am also fed up with this feckless president that has brought our country low. I simply will not abide a congress that enables him. He needs to be impeached, not placated for fucks sake.

I am just a humble-blogger – but I am getting less humble about it every day.

The hell with the press – they are all bought and paid for. We are actually watching you, We are actually reading the policy papers and We are actually writing about your records from the public record. We are unconcerned with “access” because we don’t have any; and for the record – veracity doesn’t need a bio (or a byline for that fact).

I issue a friendly warning now – any Representative that backs this apostasy of a funding bill with no timelines – especially in light of the Iraqi parliament backing withdrawal plans with timelines – will face the wrath of the blogs. And any Representative that does not take that seriously is in for a rude awakening.

If this passes the House, there will be an electoral bloodbath in November of 2008, and the carcasses of Republican and Democrat alike will litter the landscape. The way the system is gamed, we are a two-party system, and only a perfect storm of feckless perfidy will change that.

Say hello to Unity 08 and the Progressives.

Check the calendar. It’s storm season.

    The point of my post was not an appeal for impeachment – that is a personal preference that i realize will not come to pass – the point was to oppose the funding bill that will be voted on later in the week.

    Just to clarify.
