The Corpse Wiggles: Live Blogging Congress (Six Months Late) Voting on Contempt for Two of the Many

I know a lot of you may hold Congress in contempt, but on Thursday Congress voted to hold someone else in contempt. Here's what happened:

New National Poll on Impeachment Possible

One of the reasons it's hard to convince Congress Members to support opening Cheney impeachment hearings is that they are not fully aware of the level of support among the public for impeaching the least popular vice president in history. There have been very few mainstream national polls done on the topic, primarily because polling companies have not done them on their own (or not published the results) and have refused to do them for money. The few polls that have been published are posted here.

Building a New World Conference: May 22-25 in Radford, Virginia

In 2008 many of us understand that our nation - and even the entire planet - are in a state of crisis.

Iraq Occupation Worse Than Ever

Two weeks ago an article in the Cville Weekly by Josh Levy ( http://tinyurl.com/3ckznf ) told us that the "surge" was going to win the "war" in Iraq. "Victory has not yet arrived," he cautioned, "and it may be years before we can mark its arrival with confidence, but we can reasonably hope to see it."

Conyers' Phone Rings Steadily for Two Days

By David Swanson

There's a new rule on Capitol Hill: the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee can remove impeachment from the Constitution, but cannot also use telephones, Email, or fax machines, because the flood of pro-impeachment communications from outraged citizens is overwhelming each of those devices.
