For The Record

I am not related to the mayor of Berzerkely (deliberate spelling).

From al-Reuters (HT: The New Editor):

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The municipal council in the liberal California city of Berkeley plans to give voters a say on a measure calling for the impeachment of U.S. President George W. Bush and U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, the mayor said on Wednesday.

A number of local governments across the United States have pressed resolutions urging impeachment, but the Berkeley city council's goal is to be the first to put the issue directly to voters, Mayor Tom Bates said in an interview.

"This is basically giving the people a chance to talk, to join the debate," Bates said. "The issues go way beyond impeaching the president. They go to safeguarding the Constitution. This administration has run roughshod over the Constitution."

Given that the goal of the hard left is to destroy the Constitution and with it the lives of several million American citizens I could only look upon this posture as an exercise in rank hypocrisy.

I should look up how many induhviduals (another deliberate spelling) there are on the Berzerkey city council. We'll need thirty feet of rope per neck to be stretched.

Berkeley resident Albert Sukoff said he was not surprised by the council's decision.

"I think they overextend themselves and get into things that aren't their business," said Sukoff. "Berkeley has always had a foreign policy, the national one notwithstanding."

There is a name for that sort of behavior, its called treason.
