Apparently winning the 2006 elections did not make them happy

The angry left finally won the elections. Common sense would tell you that this means they will finally become happy, right?

Not so fast!

Not only is the angry left not happy, but somehow they have become even angrier than they were before.

The anger can be clearly seen in this article by Howard Zinn from The Progressive.

Mr. Zinn makes the argument for not only impeaching Bush, but impeaching Cheney at the same time-

The time is right, then, for a national campaign calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

Mr. Zinn is also angry at the very same Democrats he help get elected this past November-

Courage is in short supply in Washington, D.C. The realities of the Iraq War cry out for the overthrow of a government that is criminally responsible for death, mutilation, torture, humiliation, chaos. But all we hear in the nation’s capital, which is the source of those catastrophes, is a whimper from the Democratic Party, muttering and nattering about “unity” and “bipartisanship,” in a situation that calls for bold action to immediately reverse the present course.

Now Mr. Zinn is calling for a grassroots movement to completely overthrow the US government-

The Declaration of Independence, revered as a document but ignored as a guide to action, needs to be read from pulpits and podiums, on street corners and community radio stations throughout the nation. Its words, forgotten for over two centuries, need to become a call to action for the first time since it was read aloud to crowds in the early excited days of the American Revolution: “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and institute new government.”


There is a logical next step in this development of an impeachment movement: the convening of “people’s impeachment hearings” all over the country. This is especially important given the timidity of the Democratic Party. Such hearings would bypass Congress, which is not representing the will of the people, and would constitute an inspiring example of grassroots democracy.

Yes indeed, the angry left is angrier. Now they want to overthrow the government entirely.

By the way, if Bush and Cheney are impeached and thrown out of office, who is next in line for the office?

Nancy Pelosi, of course!

Nancy Pelosi on Iraq and Saddam-

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

I am guessing that Mr. Zinn would also encourage the impeachement of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator John Kerry, Senator Ted Kennedy, Senator Bob Graham, Senator Carl Levin, Senator Jay Rockefeller, Sen. Robert Byrd, Rep. Henry Waxman and so on and so on...

Each and every one of these Senators and Representatives lied to us about Saddam Hussein and WMD in Iraq. See this link...

Even Sen. Russ Feingold was part of the deception on Iraq and he did not vote for the war-

The threat that we know is real - Iraq's pursuit of weapons of mass destruction, or WMD - is unquestionably a very serious issue.


Saddam is a vile man with a reckless and brutal history. I have no problem agreeing that the U.S. should support regime change.


This is not about being a hawk or a dove, this is not about believing Saddam Hussein is misunderstood. He is a monster, Iraq's weapons programs are real, and only a fool would believe that the U.S. should simply hope for the best and allow recent trends to continue.

Wow. Each and every one of these so-called leaders lied to us about Iraq, WMD and Saddam Hussein.

I wonder if Mr. Zinn is just as angry at all of his leaders as he is with George Bush and Dick Cheney?

Yes he is. Considering the fact that Mr. Zinn wants a grassroots movement to completely overthrow the US Government, he sure sounds angrier than he was before the elections of 2006.

Yes, the left is getting angrier and Mr. Zinn is a perfect example of this anger.
