Gotta feed those nutroots, I guess. It’s been a month since Dennis Kucinich’s last House floor stunt and they need some nourishment. He obliges today.
Just received his latest e-mail to his cult:
Impeachment on the House floor TODAY
Congressman Dennis Kucinich will present a single Article of Impeachment to the House of Representatives sometime between 3:30 pm and 4:00 pm (EDT) today, Thursday, July 10th.
A press conference will be held today at the Cannon HOB Terrace at 2pm (EDT)
Sessions of the House of Representatives are broadcast live on C-SPAN (check your local cable listings for channel) and streamed live via the Internet (www.cspan.org).
The article of Impeachment will deal directly with President Bush fraudulently obtaining support for an attack on Iraq by creating a false case for war. Full details of the Article of Impeachment will be available after they are read on the floor of the House by Congressman Kucinich.
Please spread the word and continue to circulate the online petition that Congressman Kucinich will personally present to members of Congress.

Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich Committee
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi backpedals on her pledge to keep impeachment “off the table.” Promises, schmomises.
Via USAT, hat tip – Will Amos:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters this morning that the Judiciary Committee may hold hearings on an impeachment resolution that Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, is pushing against President Bush.
“This is a Judiciary Committee matter, and I believe we will see some attention being paid to it by the Judiciary Committee,” Pelosi says, according to The Politico. “Not necessarily taking up the articles of impeachment because that would have to be approved on the floor, but to have some hearings on the subject.”
“My expectation is that there will be some review of that in the committee,” she adds.
