Chilling Thoughts

If this paragraph doesn't give you pause, nothing will:

Yet the key figure is Rep. John Conyers Jr., Michigan Democrat and ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee. Mr. Conyers is leading a small but growing caucus of House liberal Democrats calling for a formal investigation into the administration’s alleged abuses of power. He has introduced a resolution, which has 33 co-sponsors, demanding the establishment of a “select committee,” whose ultimate purpose is “to make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment.” Should the Democrats win back the House, Mr. Conyers will become the new chairman of the Judiciary Committee. And Judiciary is the House committee in which formal impeachment proceedings must begin and then proceed to the floor.

The main reason the Democrats want so desperately to regain control of at least the House is impeaching President Bush. Make no mistake about it. As the author of this column outlines, their leftist, ignorant, psychotic base is screaming for it. So far their more "mainstream" leadership has distanced itself from the idea, but given the majority in the House they would jump on it like a starvin' man on a Christmas ham, to use a phrase from "Remember the Titans."

Imagine, John Conyers as chairment of the House Judiciary Committee. That thought alone should be enough to have all of us knocking on doors for Republicans this year.
