Kucinich Follow-Up

This is a bit off topic, but since the truthers continue to have full body sexual responses to Kucinich's tilting at windmills, I should point out that it was thrown into a committee to die. This bill was such a threat, that it was actually the Republicans who wanted to bring it immediately to a vote:

Democratic aides widely suggested those gauging the bill's prospects look to a precedent: the impeachment articles against Vice President Dick Cheney, which were sent to Conyers' committee in November. There's no evidence they will be considered before the Bush administration leaves office in January.

Those were Kucinich's, too. Republicans, seeing a chance to force Democrats into an embarrassing debate, voted to bring up the resolution. Democrats countered by pushing through a motion to scuttle the bill from the floor.
