Impeach Bush?

There's a lot of chatter about impeaching Bush in the media, the blogs and even Wikipedia. Some gurus say that impeaching Bush would not help because Cheney would become President.

Congress could impeach both Bush and Cheney, especially since Cheney appears to be the one calling the shots.

Denny Hastert would become President and he would appoint a Vice-President.

Oddly enough this outcome would be much better for the Republicans than for the Democrats. The G.O.P. would be rid of the albatross around its neck and Hastert could run for President as an incumbent in 2008.

There would be no advantage to the Democrats.

The Republicans have majorities in both houses of Congress, so it’s up to them to start the process.

Will they do it? They show no signs of it, but I’ll bet it has crossed Denny Hastert’s mind.
