Dennis Kucinich’s resolution to impeach Bush draws ridicule, one supporter

Washington – U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s surprise resolution this week to impeach President Bush has irritated some of his fellow Democrats and drawn ridicule from Republicans, but it got support from at least one other moonbat colleague.

“It is time for Congress to stand up and defend the Constitution against the blatant violations and illegalities of this administration,” said Rep. Robert Wexler, a Florida Democrat.

To read the rest go here.

Sadly, this isn’t Rep. Kucinich’s first descent into lunacy. From Glenn Reynolds’ excellent article on Tech Central Daily:

“The Berkeley City Council has endorsed Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s (D-Ohio) “Space Preservation Act,” which bans any sort of military presence in space (including satellite-based “mind control” devices).”

“It is tempting to respond to this silliness with derision: tempting, and worthwhile, since such absurdities should never go unchallenged. One might even be tempted to respond the way Buzz Aldrin recently responded to a moon-landing conspiracy theorist: with a punch in the nose. But however appealing such responses might be, they don’t address the core problem:

a public ignorant enough of science that absurd claims might actually find some traction. Instead of introducing legislation to ban space-based “mind control” beams, members of Congress should take the lead in encouraging people to actually learn about science. “Mind construction,” instead of “mind control.”

The only question is, does Congress think it’s better off when the American public is knowledgeable, or ignorant? I’m afraid I know the answer to that one, too.”

In fairness Congress is not solely to blame for the ignorance that is drilled into the American public every day. The media, particularly the NY Times, Washington Post, the Associated Press, the old broadcast media triumvirate ABC, CBS, NBC, and their latest addition CNN, are certainly complicite in spreading ignorance and propaganda about science (global warming) as well as international affairs (Iraq) and domestic affairs (illegal immigration). Anyone who only gets their information from those sources is guaranteed to be so misled as to be useless in any rational discussion or decision making.
