More from the After Downing Street article:

I was a guest today on Bree Walker’s radio show. She’s the progressive radio host from California who purchased Cindy Sheehan’s land from her in Crawford, Texas.

Bree attended an event on Friday in San Diego at which Congressman Conyers spoke about impeachment. Her report was extremely interesting. I had already heard reports that Conyers had said: “What are we waiting for? Let’s take these two guys out!” But, of course, what we’re waiting for is John Conyers. Is he ready to act? It was hard to tell from that comment. In January, Conyers spoke at a huge rally on the National Mall and declared “We can fire them!” but later explained that what he meant was that we could wait for two years and Bush and Cheney’s terms would end. Was this week’s remark just more empty rhetoric?

It appears to be more than that. Bree Walker told me, on the air, that Conyers said that all he needs is three more Congress Members backing impeachment, and he’ll move on it, even without Pelosi. I asked whether that meant specifically moving from 14 cosponsors of H Res 333 to 17, or adding 3 to the larger number of Congress Members who have spoken favorably of impeachment but not all signed onto bills. Bree said she didn’t know and that Conyers had declined to take any questions.

Investigate, Indict, Impeach, Incarcerate. Immediately!!!!
Let’s get it done now, while there is still hope that we can get the stink out of the White House!

  1. It would be a fine day if Cheney was impeached. I just wish more would sign on.

    Perfect nonnie! The only thing is that we will probably need a bigger bottle of cleaner. Maybe, even a tanker truck of Formula 333. Forget the pitch forks, break out the brooms.

    first cheney, then gonzales, then chimpy, then rummy, then condi….ahhh, the list is endless!!
    i would love to make that pic even more crowded!
    i think we should all be brewing up some formula 333 in our basements. the stink is all over the place, and there is no doubt that it is quite toxic. we need tankers full of the stuff, as well as purse- and pocket-sized containers for those occasions when we bump into that 29%, or however many of them who are still around.
