Chimpeach

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Grand old badger state!

We, thy loyal sons and daughters,

Hail thee, good and great.

Wisconsin Democrats are calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Loyalists at this weekend’s state party convention in Oshkosh passed a resolution calling for Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against the three officials for their role in the war in Iraq.

The resolution contends that the administration “lied or misled” the United Nations, Congress, and the American public about the justification for the war. It cites the so-called “Downing Street memo” from British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s government, as well as reports from U.N. weapons inspectors as evidence of widespread deception.

“Democrats, not only in Wisconsin but throughout the U.S., have been outraged by what we believe has been a clear cover-up of why the U.S. went into Iraq,” said newly elected state party Chairman Joe Wineke.

Wineke said the resolution expresses the “the sense of frustration that Democrats in Wisconsin have over fighting a war for the wrong reasons.”

Enough. It’s time to stand up and say it. Enough.
