Impeach the Shrubbery and Golub vs Pelosi

At least, that's what it sounds like from these emails I get from "The Pen". Why don't I hear about Impeachment from any of my other sources? You may recall that a while ago I was griping because Nancy Pelosi said "Impeachment is off the table" and proceded to work on everything but that. She is the speaker of the house, and as such, if both Bush and Cheney were impeached, she would be president. Nobody seems to want to talk about that possibility, least of all her.

If Pelosi were a bold woman, ready to step up to the plate of running this nation, she would at least not throw cold water on the passion for impeachment. But she is not willing, for whatever reasons, to upset the cart in the middle of the road. Perhaps she is protecting herself. I refuse to believe that Pelosi thinks that we're on the right track, but rather that she's biding her time to make a move, or that she just wants out of the limelight before all hell breaks lose.

So back to the point, Shirley Golub is challenging Pelosi for her seat. Golub is for impeachment of both Cheney and Bush. Golub says that she is "on the table". I get emails about her, and it seems they used to support Kucinich also, from The Pen. The Democratic primary nomination that will decide between Pelosi and Golub will be in San Fransisco in June.

Someone from Golub's tribe has written a play. It's set in congress during impeachment hearings, and educates the audience as to the misdeeds of the Shrubbery. I'd like to see that play, though the ending sounds contrived in the writeup below. They're hoping to get whole audiences on their feet shouting "I will stand up for impeachment"...and I would jump to my feet given the opportunity but in general, people dismiss and mock me. I say we should go ahead and put those guys behind bars to prove to the world that America is not dead yet.

We have some incredible news, we're doing a PLAY!!!

On her way back from the Take Back America Conference last week
Shirley Golub, who is challenging Nancy Pelosi for the Democratic
primary nomination in San Francisco in June, heard from a playwright
working with impeachment scholar Bruce Fein on a new impeachment
passion play with a socko surprise ending that will have you on your
feet clapping and cheering, and Shirley has stepped up to finance a
full legit theater production of this inspirational and educational
new play, and with your help we can make it happen in a couple weeks.

Impeachment Play Donations;

Picture this scene in your mind.

The audience is cast as the members of the U.S. Senate hearing
evidence in the impeachment trial of George Bush and Dick Cheney.
With all the damning evidence presented of their many high crimes,
the lies to go to war, the illegal wiretaps, the secret torture of
detainees, the outing of a CIA agent, the law defying signing
statements and everything else, it looks very bad for Bush and Cheney
for anyone with a fair, open and patriotic mind. But Bush still
remains arrogant, and at the end he taunts the audience, thinking he
will still be able to skate away from the whole thing.

"And that's why I'm going to finish my term as your president . . .
and who's going to stand up to stop me?"

And there is silence in the theater. And then . . . we hear a single
voice from the back of the audience, calling out in loud voice from
the dark.

"I . . . I will stand up. I will for impeachment."

And whole audience turns their heads to see who this person is who
has stood up to protect and defend the Constitution.

And then we hear another voice from the other side of the audience,
just as brave and courageous,

"I . . . I too will stand up. Now there are too of us standing
together. If that's all it took to make it happen, to just stand up
in our seats right now, will we do it?"

And then another and another, and it turns in to a standing ovation
with everyone clapping and cheering, "Impeach, Impeach!!!".

THE END of the Bush/Cheney nightmare.

Have you got a lump in your throat? Is that amazing or what? To have
an inspirational mobilizing vehicle, where people can actually
visualize what it would be like to make impeachment happen now, with
your help.

Impeachment Play Donations;

We have already heard from many actors and directors in San Francisco
when the production will be staged. In the next day or so we will
make a committment for a theater, and this is going to happen in the
next couple weeks, if we have to build one from the ground up.

And have we have to move fast, because time is so short. Just
yesterday, after a visit from Dick Cheney to Saudi Arabia, so
obviously planning for nuclear first strike on Iran, the Saudi press
published articles warning people on how to prepare for the nuclear
fallout, should Cheney hit Iran with nuclear bunker busters, with
fallout that could kill millions of people.

The only hope we have is to get Congress to immediately commencement
impeachment hearings to head them off at the pass. And the only way
to do that is to have such a serious challenge to Nancy Pelosi for
her own seat, that she has no choice but to act.

This works. Bruce Fein, the impeachment scholar participated in
deliberations in the Reagan administration where the only thing that
kept them from doing something utterly crazy, was the fresh knowledge
from the Nixon experience that impeach will happen if you step that
far over the Constitutional line.

And nobody could be further over that line than George Bush and Dick
Cheney. Did you hear him over the weekend? He was confronted with the
fact that 2/3 of the America people (and that's enough to convict on
impeachment in the Senate), opposed the war in Iraq. And did you hear
what he said, "So?" And it's because in their arrogance they don't
believe that we can get it together to force our Congress to act.

But we must. We must get this impeachment play produced, and make it
the biggest theater hit that San Francisco has ever seen. And spread
it all over the country. We must rally behind Shirley Golub, who has
already raised $50,000 dollars for this historic primary challenge
against the speaker of the house herself. And we must inspire more
and more such primary challenges while there is still time.

And Congress will act. They will, They will. If you will speak out
now and help.

Remember, with every donation of $100 or more, Shirley will send you
one of the new "IMPEACH BOTH!!" baseball caps. And if you can donate
$1,000 or more to help change the course of history, you get one of
Shirley's custom embroidered baseball award jackets, with the "I'm On
The Table" message.

So please, donate what you can. Or if you cannot, just send this
email to everyone else you know, to spread the word that we are about
to save our country and the world.

Paid for by Shirley Golub for Congress

to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
