#706: Impeach Darth Cheney!

So saith Dennis Kucinich, D-Moonbat.

This is a perfect trifecta for the Democrat party. This idea would:

a) do something unlikely to succeed
b) against someone who has little Constitutional power
c) for imagined or manufactured reasons.

I guess this means Kucinich is from the "Bushitler is a moron and it's Darth-Cheney-the-puppet-master who is in control" branch of the Demokrat party. Why else would he think impeaching the vice-president is a good idea?

I'll give him this: it certainly is unique in US history. I don't recall any other time a sitting VP was impeached. (Or any VP for that matter.)

Oh, this is good: "Kucinich's argument for targeting the vice president and not President Bush is that Cheney should be removed first to prevent him from becoming president after Bush's term expires."

Cheney has said repeatedly that he's not going to run for President, that he's going to retire after January 20, 2009. That's why we've got Huckabee and Paul and Thompson and Guiliani and McCain running around.

And as I recall, even if you impeach a politician and remove him from office, there is nothing preventing him from running for office again and serving in that office should he be elected. It says here, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." What it does not say is that they can't try again at the next election.

...so we have a congressional representative who doesn't even understand how our Constitution works? I think it's the only possible explanation.
