Election Update

For those of you who haven't been stuck to some news source, I'm just letting you know that it looks like the Democrats have taken the House of Representatives, but probably won't take the Senate. It should be enough to at the least put a check on Bush, but not enough to impeach him.

UPDATE: Despite earlier reports that the Dems were behind in the counts for the Senate seats they needed, they've made a surprising comeback. It's now 50-49, with one seat left to be decided: The hotly contested Allen/Webb seat. A democratic majority in both houses? Dare I dream? (Okay, if I were dreaming, I'd dream of a majority by some third party that actually has their heads on straight.)

We only need the house to impeach. The senate to remove. But, we'll get the Senate to remove after the trial reveals all.

Sometimes reprimanding a child doesn't make the family a happy place. But you still have to do it so the child learns about accountability.
Holding government officials accountable for their actions strengthens our democracy. Letting lawlessness stand weakens it.

Ah, right you are. "Impeach" means to just try him, not convict him.

But anyways, Dean revealed last night that the Democrats had no plans to impeach him. Guess our only chance is if Al Franken runs and wins in 2008, as he's promised us to push for a quickie impeachment.
