Now that the possibility of impeachment is finally on the table, the only question is, will it matter? The incriminations are certainly sufficient to justify impeachment (Alternet):
There is no shortage of diligent documentation of this president’s violation of laws and misleading of the public — from the 1,284-page Torture Papers to congressman John Conyers’ 273-page compilation [PDF] of the lies leading to the Iraq war. But behind this incredible ongoing compendium of evidence against President Bush lurks the realization that publicly pointing to criminal behavior is not synonymous with bringing it to an end.
Pushing impeachment through a Republican Congress is going to be no small feat. And the public, bizarrely enough, doesn’t seem to care all that much (insufficient salaciousness?) And then there’s the question of whether it will make any difference — if the mindset of the administration doesn’t change, what will we have gained?
