Finally! Now the Democrats will save the country, rescue the beautiful, large-breasted heroine, and ride off into the sunset.

Link for those who didn't read the title and actually expected something about polka, bowling, and kielbasa.

Listen, I hate burst Cleveland's bubble, but the capital of bowling and polka is actually Milwaukee.

Although they can have the Kielbasa. Who needs 'em when ya can have a beer brat?

See, this is why I'm glad I live in Chicago. I really want Obama to win the primary, but I really want to vote for Kucinich. Best of both worlds!

Cheney first, then Bush. Good strategy. "President Cheney" just ... ewww. Makes my teeth hurt, like fingernails on a blackboard.

Another must-see Kucinich video. Not your typical politician.

Wow. I wish this kind of thing could be done by referendum, just this once.

So many social engagements overdue prosecutions, so little time.

Do we get to shoot him in the face too?
Will he have to apologize after we do?

How is it that this tag has never been used before?

I'm not finding shooting in the face jokes very funny lately.

As always, you can track the resolution's status on THOMAS.

Here is the full text of the articles of impeachment.

You can also track it at OpenCongress which I like better than THOMAS.

If these articles don't get passed, Kucinich could make a career out of submitting new articles of impeachment on all-new charges each time.
I daresay he wouldn't run out of charges before January 20, 2009.

If it were a real body. We're dealing with a slime mold here, it sprouts new parts (and scandals) constantly.

why cleveland is the capital of polka, bowling and kielbasa.

Because Denver and Detroit already had dibs on the Capital of All Things That Suck; and polka, bowling and kielbasa was all that was left in the hat.

Cleveland once held the 3rd largest Hungarian population of any city in the world (behind Budapest and Miskolc). (This is notable because Cleveland is not actually in Hungary.)

Actually, have you seen Kucinich's wife? She's a total babe. And nice, too, not to mention smart as hell.

(We're in his district, and call him, affectionately, "our little moonbat." Looooove Dennis. Or Dennis!, as his constituents say, since that's what's on his bumper stickers).

Also, am I the only person who finds it kind of funny that vegan Dennis! links to sausageshoppe.com on the Polka page Alvy Ampersand linked to?

I choose to interpret that as an example of his tolerance, and willingness to support the interests of his constituents even when his own interests are opposed.

Don't forget about Impeachment Saturday. The President and Vice President serve at the Pleasure of the people. So let's oust the fuckers!

I dunno why everyone is so excited, Pelosi already promised no impeachment as part of her election campaign/speaker appointment.

Saw something about this on CNN on TUESDAY.

evilcolonel: something about Vermont voters not approving impeachment. Not Kucinich introducing a HR 333.
posted by Burhanistan at 2:49 PM on April 26, 2007


Oh. That's different, isn't it?


Never mind.

I've just been reading Michael Ruhlman's book, 'House', discovered, I think, as a consequence of something somebody said about him here on Metafilter.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and it made me want to live in Cleveland as well. (Provided I can also have a substantial Victorian pile on Millionaire's Row, that is.)

God I love that man. I've often wondered what would have happened if he had run against and beaten Bush in 2000. We had a surplus, and he had ideas for sound social programs. And, tho it may seem crass to consider this, would there have been a 9/11 without Bush?
posted by es_de_bah at 6:19 PM on April 26, 2007


You could, PeterMcDermott. Compared to the rest of the country it's crazy cheap here. The house I bought in 1997 for 70K would've gone for double that in any other major market, on the *low* end.

Michael Ruhlman is cool, too. Have you checked out his blog? Anthony Bourdain has guestblogged a few times recently, always very funny.
