Kucinich Calls For Impeachment, Has Balls

This evening, the mas macho member of the US House of Representatives Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) introduced articles of impeachment against President Bush in a 35 count indictment on the House floor. It’s not going to happen, but think about it: 435 members of the House and only ONE has the nads/brains/morals to do this?
And lest you think this is all about the war (like that’s not enough) he’s addressing Katrina (STILL not answered for, almost THREE years later) and global warming.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly said that impeachment is off the table and no one thinks this is going to get much traction, but all the wire services and hundreds of other outlets, have picked it up. Maybe combined with Scott McLellan’s testemony before the house judicialry committee on June 20th will have some effect, at least in the public consciousness.
It’s on C-Span. Dig it.

Keith Olbermann: The Last Courageous And Honest Man On Television

This is one of Mr. Olbermann’s occasional “special comments” from his week-nightly program Countdown with Keith Olbermann and you need to watch it. It aired yesterday and it’s brilliant. It’s truth spoken to power (albeit indirectly) like it is rarely seen on television in the United States (or anywhere else, for that matter) and it is genius. It’s a bit long (12 minutes) but completely worth it. If you’re even a little bit like I am, it will have you clapping, laughing, scowling and whooping at the ceiling. It’s the news commentator’s version of a beautiful jazz riff. It’s goes, man! You just wish you were in the corner of a dark and smokey Greenwich Village bar, yelling “Go man, GO!” at the top of your lungs.
Yes, it’s that good.
And while you’re at it, if you like this, send an email to letters@msnbc.com and tell them that even if the barbarian hordes of the FCC, the GOP or Cheney himself descend on 30 Rock, the truth must be told and Keith must remain on the air.

Brilliant Ad… Dewar’s White Label

Have any of you seen this ad? I saw it a while ago on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, but an only now getting around to posting it. I took it with a shitty camera phone, so the quaility is less than great:


For those who can’t read it, it’s a picture of former president George H. W. Bush and it reads: “MOST MEN ARE BELIEVERS IN HEREDITY, until the son makes a food of himself.”
Heh heh heh!

My Hero Keith, Part Deux

In yet another brilliant, scathing and completely warrented dissection of Fox News, Chris Wallace (“a monkey posing as a newscaster”), president George W. Bush and the rest of his unholy cabal, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann recently laid into the aforementioned groups regarding, among other things, Wallace’s absurd attack on Bill Clinton (part one and part two). Dig it:

I love this man!
