House Resolution 799 - Impeach Cheney

Dennis Kucinich brought HR 799 to the house two days ago. This calls for the impeachment of Dick Cheney on three counts. It looks like the Democrats tried to table it which would have killed it. The Republicans turned around and voted for it to open a discussion about the Democrats' record towards the war. Nancy Peloci has said that she will not consider a move for impeachment because it would cloud the progress that the democrats are trying to make in the house. More likely they don't want to have everyone look back and remember how they rolled over and made some evil political decisions so at the time they wouldn't look like the bad guys.

Watch the video of Dennis Kucinich reading HR 799:

Make up your own mind but it looks like we voted in a bunch of Republicrats.
