Pelosi needs a reason to impeach, I'll give her one Nancy Pelosi recently appeared on the morning talk show The View. Joy Behar, much to her credit, asked her why she took "impeachment off the table." Pelosi, in her arrogance, said someone should give her a crime that Bush could be impeached for. Well, if she doesn't believe Kucinich's 35 crimes, I have one she might like.

It's the war, and now the bailout, stupid! Why isn't Obama challenging the "surge is working" rhetoric being used by McCain and the republicans? 30,000 troops sent into Iraq was not the sole cause to the seemingly decrease in violence, which is merely wishful thinking.

RAINING METAL? Yesterday I was speaking with my son who is a Marine stationed in Fallujah. Every so often I am lucky enough to get a phone call, but the conversations have a background noise. All I hear when speaking with him is mortar fire and machine guns hammering away at something. My imagination runs away with me, although it isn't an imaginery time. This is real gun fire, not fireworks on display. His CEO emails offer NO comfort.
