The latest poll by American Research Group that 54 percent of Americans favor impeaching Vice President Dick Cheney, and that 46 percent favor impeaching President Bush, is encouraging news for impeachment advocates. Despite a corporate media blackout on impeachment that means almost nobody in the country knows that there is already a Cheney impeachment bill in the House with 14 co-sponsors (HR 333), over half the country nonetheless wants Cheney to get the boot.

Would someone ask Speaker Pelosi why, exactly, impeachment is still "off the table"?

It can't be because the public has no stomach for it; what we really have is no stomach for an endless stream of caskets and wounded coming home from Iraq, stretching into the unforeseeable future, all for no greater purpose than salvaging George's inexplicable pride, Dick's dark web of power, and the insatiable lust for overflowing bank accounts that they share with their cronies.
