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.
