Once again, the Democratic Party divides between the rank-and-file and the "pols". The Democratic Party of Wisconsin, in the closing hours of its state-wide convention yesterday, adopted a resolution:

"CALLING ON THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS TO INITIATE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST PRESIDENT BUSH, VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY AND DEFENSE SECRETARY RUMSFELD FOR HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS"

However, the "pols" are attempting what they strangely perceive as necessary "damage control" such that the resolution isn’t appearing at places like the Democratic Party of Wisconsin website. And, of course, it isn’t getting out into the world of corporate media.

Yet and still, it’s a good sign. Go, Wisconsin! Text of the resolution, as reported in DailyKos.com blog by "ColdFusion04" on Sunday (June 12, 2005) --

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHEREAS, the Downing Street Memo shows that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld began planning and executing the war on Iraq before seeking Congressional and UN approval;

WHEREAS, UN weapons inspectors showed prior to the invasion that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq; and

WHEREAS, there is further mounting evidence that the Administration lied or misled about "mushroom clouds," "connections to 9/11," and "war as a last resort" as they sought UN, Congressional, and public approvals;

THEREFORE, RESOLVED, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin asks Congress to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is believed that Wisconsin is the first state Democratic Party to have passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld.
