Kuchinich Finds Two Crazies

The Chicago Tribune reported this morning that my former Congresswoman Janice Schakowsky (D-IL.) has joined that wacky Democratic Presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Oh.) and is co-sponsoring a House Bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. Ms. Schakowsky is Chief Deputy Majority Whip and a woman who seems to use the Big Lie theory of public discourse. She was joined by William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) in this latest bit of Democratic lunacy. Both Ms. Schakowsky and Mr. Clay were co-sponsors of Rep. John Conyer's (D-Mi.) attempt to impeach George Bush during the last congress, a time when the Democrats were in the minority. I must ask, where the heck is Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx.) when you need her?

It is worth noting that Ms. Schakowsky's husband, Bob Creamer plead guilty (read the link it outlines outrageous behavior) to defrauding three banks in different Midwestern states with a check kiting scheme in order to keep his charity, Illinois Public Action, solvent. One can reasonably presume that his own six-figure salary was preserved by keeping the charity solvent. Additionally a scandal would have posed problems to Ms. Schakowsky's then upcoming primary run to replace retiring twenty-four term Democratic Congressman Sidney Yates. When Mr. Creamer's case became public Congresswoman Schakowsky and other local Democrats insisted that it was all a misunderstanding and that he was scamming the banks for the children, that the check was (literally) in the mail, his dog ate the checks, the sun was in his eyes...

Mr. Creamer opened checking accounts at three banks in the Midwest and drove to those far-flung banks to kite those checks. Mr. Creamer's scheme was no misunderstanding and in fact when the music for this game of musical chairs stopped there was still $370,000 missing. It took months for Creamer to raise enough money to make the banks whole. Her husband has nothing to do with this latest nonsense from Ms. Schakowsky but it is interesting to note that she lives with and has publicly excused a felon but she wants to impeach Vice President Cheney over a policy disagreement. As part of her posturing Ms. Schakowsky will likely call Mr. Cheney a liar. It is also worth noting that Ms. Schakowsky will not stand up for the freedom and liberty of others; no surprise in this corner but worth noting.

See Jay Tea's prediction over at Wizbang of one possible outcome of impeaching Cheney; a bums rush to impeach Bush and install Pelosi as the first female President.

See the moonbat's reaction here, just don't feed them, please.

Update: Speaker Pelosi was in town Friday to help Rep. Schakowsky raise money at her annual Ultimate Women's Power Lunch.

Thanks to the wonderful Dr. Sanity and her Carnival of Insanities for inclusion again this week.
