At Super Bowl Sunday:

Crudely made "Impeach Bush" signs greeted drivers headed to downtown Detroit on southbound I-75, but the sentiment was different inside the General Motors Renaissance Center, where football fan and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice signed autographs (including at least one Terrible Towel), posed for pictures and pressed the flesh with the crowd at the ESPN studio on the ground floor.

Velvet Revolution's ImpeachMobile Makes a House Call!

http://www.bradblog.com

Velvet Revolution's ImpeachMobile has so far received nothing but thumbs-ups and high-signs from those who've seen it! (With the exception of a few cops who have pulled it over to make sure all papers were in order. They are.)

That may change this week, as the intrepid Velvet Revolutionary drivers take the rolling billboard into a few less-friendly settings. We'll see!

In the meantime, we still (The BRAD BLOG is a co-founder of VR) welcome and appreciate your contributions to the effort. They help to fill up the gas tank, as well as to pay for future billboards. Perhaps we'll not be so subtle next time with our message ;-)

Sheeler attempts to impeach Bush

By NICOLE WIETRAK, Coventry Courier

PROVIDENCE - At a state house press conference Wednesday, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and West Greenwich resident Carl Sheeler made a call out to Rhode Island Congressmen James R. Langevin (D-02) and Patrick J. Kennedy (D-01) to assist U.S. Representative John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) to initiate impeachment hearings for President George W. Bush.

Audio: Rep. Maxine Waters Says Bush's Spying Program Is an Impeachable Offense

Here's a short audio clip from the Alternative State of the Union event hosted by the Progressive Caucus, the Nation Magazine, and the Institute for Policy Studies. The only voice you'll hear will be that of Congresswoman Maxine Waters, speaking about Bush, and saying:

"His message tonight will not deal honestly with the mistakes that he's made. And I believe that the latest revelations about him and his spying on American citizens - no matter how he tries to frame it - are impeachable offenses. I believe that this president is not only spying on American citizens in the way that he's describing it, but to indicate in any shape form or fashion that he's been authorized by Congress to do it on the vote that was taken after 9-11 is plain dishonest. And further to try to imply that he's supported by the Constitution of the United States is even more dishonest. And so, I think that this issue that he's been caught red-handed on is really typical of who he is, how he handles this presidency, and what his leadership is all about: spying and lying. And I think it is important for us to understand that all of the other issues that we're going to talk about today - and particularly the war in Iraq - will continue to exemplify how he has lied and misled the American public."

Impeachment = Turnout?

By Steve Cobble, www.huffingtonpost.com

Those of us who co-founded AfterDowningStreet.org have long pushed for some sort of "accountability" for the Bush Administration's lies about the war--from hearings to censure to impeachment. Legally and morally, George W. betrayed his oath of office; he has earned impeachment.

Lies About Blowjobs, Bad. Wars? Not So Much.

By Eric Alterman
http://www.thenation.com

At a recent conference on the Clinton Administration at Hofstra University, ex-press secretary Jake Siewart made a point that had previously eluded me: It was during the early days of Clinton's presidency that the democratization of instant information made the insider press corps obsolete. To retain their importance and self-regard, these journalists had to invent a new function for themselves, and they did: interpreting, not reporting, the news. But instead of doing the hard work of researching the historical, economic, sociological and political contexts of a given story and then finding a way to explain these in lay terms, they preferred to rely on what came most easily to them: cocktail party gossip, green room small talk, semiofficial leaks and unconfirmed rumor, almost always offered up as if the source had no interest in pushing a point of view.

The ‘I’ word

By San Diego City Beat

In last week’s San Francisco Bay Guardian, the Bay Area’s venerable, rabblerousing alternative weekly, Steven T. Jones reported that “in the wake of the revelation that federal officials have been illegally eavesdropping on American citizens without required warrants—which President George W. Bush not only admitted approving, but promised to continue under his expansive view of executive power—has propelled talk of impeachment into the political mainstream.

The impeachment issue

By San Francisco Bay Guardian

Our article last week on the case for impeachment struck a nerve. It's been picked up all over the blogosphere, cited on some of the key anti-Bush sites like AfterDowningStreet.org and ImpeachPAC.org, and, based on the responses we've been getting, circulated widely by e-mail. That should come as no surprise: Although elected leaders in Washington are still afraid of the I word, out in the rest of the country it's very much in the political vernacular.

W Places Apple On Head, Dares Nation To Shoot it Off

By Tom Gilroy, www.huffingtonpost.com

If you missed the President's address to the nation last night, here's all you really need to know: he dared us to impeach him.

W basically got up there and said, 'I'm the same incompetent buffoon I was 6 years ago, and I'm staying the course. What're you gonna do about it?' He stared the country down and dared us to acknowledge the miles-long list of crimes and failures trailing behind him like a swatch of toilet paper stuck to the heel of an Alzheimer's patient shuffling out of a public restroom.
