The snippets of the Senatorial hearings I saw yesterday with Senators Arlen Spector and Patrick Leahy expressing, for the nation, their contempt for Alberto Gonzales were enough, so much more than enough that I cannot imagine what is keeping the House from initiating impeachment of this treasonous and corrupt little man.  I know that Nancy Pelosi, who with every day becomes the symbol of Democratic treasons all by herself, has said that SHE does not want to bother with these men—Cheney, Gonzales, Bush—but the fact is that she is afraid of them.  She is inadequate and being the first of her gender in the job of Speaker, about to prove that it was a bad idea to put her into the job.  She just does not have the moral courage for it!

Her colleague Representative Conyers is a piece of work.  He says he does not have 218 votes for impeachment.  How does he know?  Does any prosecutor know how the jury is going to vote?  Isn't it clear that Nancy Pelosi's dictum warps the count?  Of course it is clear!  That is what is so utter frustrating about her arrogant and misguided, TREASONOUS decision. Rob Kall, at OpEdNews, is probably correct.  We need to organize differently.  If Sheehan is going to run against Pelosi as an independent—which is advisable, since the Democratic machine in the Pelosi District is going to support her even if she turns out to be on the list with Vitter, then we need to get behind Sheehan and make enough noise in California that Mrs. Pelosi gets the drift.

I supported this woman, but I have withdrawn that support categorically.  She is the problem now, and her intransigent stance on impeachment is, in fact, treasonous, if you count failure to abide by the Constitution treason.  I do.  You do.  So, the matter has gotten to this mid-summer pass.  She must reverse herself—and Gonzales is the obvious person to do it with—or she must be removed from the House.  Period.  If all politics is local, then we must hit her where she lives.  People of San Francisco, we want to hear from you.  Comments please.
