Calls to impeach WYO's "favorite son" carried news on Friday about a call by Rep. Robert Wexler of Florida to impeach V.P. Dick Cheney, the quiet young man who grew up in Casper, Wyoming, and went on to become the scourge of the universe. Joining Wexler in this effort are two other Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee: Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. They called on their committee to begin impeachment hearings. Here's what they said:

"The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccesary war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings."

They wrote an op-ed outlining their position, but none of the nation's leading newspapers would publish it, according to No surprise there. As A.J. Liebling said, "The free press belongs to those who own one." So it's been up to progressive bloggers to spread the word. Some of those links are on my sidebar.
