Invisible man Kucinich reads Articles of Impeachment and No One Notices

Rep. Dennis Kucinich has two things in common with Disney’s Jiminy Cricket: They look a little alike and they both like wishing on a star. We know who gets their wish. Kucinich plays out a scene on the House floor that all sane people can only dream of, which is why it’s cathartic to watch.

Associated Press wrote:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a former Democratic presidential contender, said Monday he wants the House to consider a resolution to impeach President Bush.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi consistently has said impeachment was "off the table."Kucinich, D-Ohio, read his proposed impeachment language in a floor speech. He contended Bush deceived the nation and violated his oath of office in leading the country into the Iraq war.

Kucinich introduced a resolution last year to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. That resolution was killed, but only after Republicans initially voted in favor of taking up the measure to force a debate.
