But the groundwork is being laid. Former Brooklyn Rep. Liz Holtzman is hawking a book outlining how to impeach President Bush:
In her book, Holtzman and co-writer Cynthia Cooper lay out four other issues on which they believe Bush could be impeached: lying about weapons of mass destruction to justify invading Iraq, allowing the torture of prisoners, leaking classified information and botching the federal response to Hurricane Katrina.
“I thought that when we voted to impeach Richard Nixon, this would send a very strong message to future Presidents – do not put yourself above the rule of law,” said Holtzman, a Democrat. “That message was not heard by President Bush.”
A Republican National Committee spokesman panned the book on behalf of the White House.
“Clearly, Ms. Holtzman is a hyperpartisan interested in getting her name in the newspaper,” said the spokesman, Danny Diaz. “Unfortunately, she represents a party that is more focused on leveling political attacks than supporting measures that protect the American people.”
Now, she is taking to the airwaves and to the road to muster up moonbat support for an impeachment drive. Reader Richard Davis e-mails that Holtzman is convening an impeachment town hall in Philadelphia this weekend.

“Impeachment has to have the support of the American people,” she said.
They aren’t wasting any time trying to build it.
Ed Koch adds further warning:
Some congressional leaders will push for President Bush’s impeachment now that the Democrats have taken control of the House and possibly the Senate, former New York Mayor Ed Koch predicts.
“I expect that [Rep. John] Conyers as chairman [of the House Judiciary Committee], now with great freedom, will do anything he can to commence such impeachment or investigatory activity, and we’ll see whether Pelosi will prevent it,” Koch says.
