Life is (im)Peachy

Yesterday afternoon, Ralph Nader spoke in front of the White House, calling for the resignation of President Bush and Vice President Cheney based on 5 impeachable offenses
  1. Criminal war against Iraq (13:15)
  2. Torture Policy (15:10)
  3. Arresting Americans without charges or Habeas Corpus (16:00)
  4. Signing Statement abuse (16:20)
  5. Spying on Americans in violation of FISA (17:10)

He's not alone. The Iraq Veterans Against the War testified recently in front of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, calling for similar action, which can be viewed here

There is a large online community (getting over 1.2 million google hits) calling for impeachment as well.

Representative Robert Wexler (D-FL) has joined Dennis Kucinich's (D-OH) bill, H.R. 333, to impeach Vice President Cheney. The legislation is already out there, but without the pressure on Congress to hold the hearings.
