Past The Verge


Vin Weber, a lobbyist and former Republican member of Congress with ties to the White House, said he thought the president more broadly was trying to appeal to the American public as it loses faith in his Iraq policy.

"Basically, the bottom has fallen out," he said. "The public is on the verge of throwing up its hands over Iraq."

That's how the story in the Seattle Times ends, so let's flesh it out a little- 51% of the public want Bush impeached, only 44% say no.  The public is not "on the verge", the public simply has no way to enforce their will on the Republican noise machine.  Something had better change when those numbers reach 80 or 90% for impeachment, or there will be trouble around here.
