Conyers Introduces Resolution Censuring Bush & Cheney

Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, just introduced a resolution of censure for both President Bush and Vice-President Cheney in the House of Representatives. He also is asking Congress to create a select committee (ie, like the Ervin Committee, which investigated Watergate) to investigate whether Bush's actions rise to the level of impeachable offenses.

Simultaneously, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have released a report called The Constitution in Crisis; The Downing Street Minutes and Deception, Manipulation, Torture, Retribution, and Coverups in the Iraq War. You can download it here.

You can find out more, and sign a petition supporting Conyers, here.

Wait, this is real? Not one of those Onion articles where the Democrats show some balls and we all have a good chuckle?

I know, it's hard to believe. Democrats, actually representing their constituents and upholding their oaths of office? Democrats? But apparently it's real.

In my experience, signing these petitions serves no purpose other than fattening the database of a direct marketer. I'll find some other way to support Conyers.
