Judiciary impeachment opponents

Congressman Schiff,

You're an impeachment opponent?? According to the email from, you and Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Mel Watt are opposed to impeachment hearings, even though "by the end of the hearing [on July 25], even the see-no-evil Republican witnesses admitted Congress should consider impeachment."

We aren't asking you to be another Tom DeLay and railroad impeachment proceedings through Congress. We want you to support looking into the evidence because at this point there is some agreement that the evidence seems "credible and substantial." And you're continuing to oppose looking into what crimes may have been committed by the Bush Administration?? Why?? What have they offered you in exchange for blocking the investigation? When important players like Karl Rove blithely ignore a Congressional subpoena, you know something's up and the Administration has something to hide. And you're not interested in looking into it??

Is something rotten in District 29?

Lieberman's conflicting allegiances

Dear Senator Lieberman,

You need to make a decision about who "your people" are. Are you primarily Jewish? Then you need to be an Israeli. Are you primarily American? Then you need to let Israel stand on its own. Israel is a strong, modern nation capable of handling the repercussions of its invasion of Palestine in 1948. The U.S. doesn't need to be involved anymore as hired mercenaries protecting a fledgling nation. Your love of Israel should lead you to become directly involved in developing Israel's policies and strategies, without maneuvering the U.S. to implement those policies. Follow your heart.
