Kook Kucinich To Propose Impeachment

Well, apparently the little nut from Ohio is going to follow through on his threat:

Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich is planning to make a procedural move on the House floor Tuesday that would call up a vote on the Democratic presidential candidate's resolution to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney.

In the resolution, which was introduced in April and has 21 co-sponsors, Kucinich accuses Cheney of lying to Congress and the U.S. public in order to enter into a war in Iraq, and of trying to mislead again in order to start a war with Iran.

Never mind that his resolution has little to no chance of going anywhere, he's gonna make the nutroots happy for a short time and get some free face time on camera. The funniest thing in this article, though, is at the bottom:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers told FOX News that it's not in the speaker's interest to move impeachment articles.

"If she were to let this thing out of the box, considering the number of legislative issues we have pending ... it could create a split that could effect our productivity for the rest of the Congress," he said.

Yeah...wouldn't want to slow down the momentum on all those accomplishments...
