The Case for Impeachment — It’s Becoming Mainstream

Carl Sheeler, Candidate for US Senate in RI, paid for this billboard.

This billboard is from the Carl Sheeler campaign for US Senate in Rhode Island. Carl Sheeler is running as a Democrat. Right now in the polls he is showing about 3-5% support. So he will most likely not win the primary. But he is the “Impeach Bush” candidate, and there’s something to be said for that. Perhaps, with his presence, one of our other senate candidates will clue into the American public’s sentiment and similarly call for impeachment.

And on that topic, Lewis Lapham is making the case for impeachment in the March 2006 issue of Harper’s, soon to be online. Here is a short excerpt.

Before reading the [Conyers] report, I wouldn’t have expected to find myself thinking that [impeachment] was either likely or possible; after reading the report, I don’t know why we would run the risk of not impeaching the man. We have before us in the White House a thief who steals the country’s good name and reputation for his private interest and personal use; a liar who seeks to instill in the American people a state of fear; a televangelist who engages the United States in a never-ending crusade against all the world’s evil, a wastrel who squanders a vast sum of the nation’s wealth on what turns out to be a recruiting drive certain to multiply the host of our enemies. In a word, a criminal — known to be armed and shown to be dangerous. . . .

Harpers is also sponsoring a forum on impeaching Bush. Speakers at the forum include Lewis Lapham, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Michael Ratner, Elizabeth Holtzman, and John Dean. Here are the details.

  1. Kiersten,

    This is wonderful. You’re a patriot and we need to pass this word around the blogosphere and increase its posts until the mainstream media realizes that the only thing that is weak is most of our elected officials’ spines. We, the people, have had enough. Read our lips!

    We, the people, in the majority want change of leadership as much as is necessary beginning with the impeachment of Bush and his cabal of corruption. We want to oust those who failed to oppose this K Street mugging of tax payers.

    We, the people, also want to reinstill the moral values of family, community and country, which will occur when we declare an end to our occupation in Iraq and reunite our families with their loved ones and use our tax dollars for a solid domestic policy ranging from education to security as well as an end to foreign energy dependence.

  2. Carl, I wish you all the best with your campaign. Your voice resonates with real life experience. Of all our candidates, you are the one running primarily on the strength of your convictions instead of the size of your bank account. You are adding a much-needed outsider’s perspective to the race. This is benefiting all those who are serious about considering what we need to do to get back on track as a nation.

  3. Thank you, Kiersten. Family, faith and flag are where progressive Democrats need to be. Open government, campaign reform and telling the truth are fresh starts to old problems.

    Andre, you’re great! We’d like to keep this billboard up every month until Bush is Impeached or Cheney misses a quail again. Small contributions are always welcome.

    This is the people’s campaign.
