SF Supervisors Vote To Impeach Bush
Associated Press ^ | March 1, 2006 | AP

SAN FRANCISCO -- While it carries only symbolic weight, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has taken another vote to draw the ire of conservatives across the nation. They have taken a vote to impeach President George Bush.

The board's vote was not the first in California. Santa Cruz has already passed such a measure while Watsonville's leaders approved a resolution last month that calls for the president to bring California National Guard troops home from Iraq.

Still it's San Francisco that has drawn criticism from national conservatives including Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly. Spurred on by O'Reilly's comments, Highland -- a small town of 50,000 people in San Bernardino County -- passed a resolution not to send any officials to San Francisco for state meetings.

"The City of Highland will not spend public money going to the City of San Francisco," said Highland city councilmember Jody Scott. "We will not spend one dime of public money."

The San Francisco Supervisors took the action by a 7-3 vote, they claim, because Bush has destroyed civil liberties in his wiretapping program, and failed miserably in his response to Hurricane Katrina.

"I think the case is clear, and I think it's appropriate for us to weigh in," Supervisor Chris Daly told the San Francisco Chronicle.

But only Congress can impeach the president, and no one there is attempting it.

Mayor Gavin Newsom, not one to shy away from controversy, said signing the resolution was not high on his priority list.

"It's probably going to shatter the status quo in this country when it passes,'' a joking Newsom told the Chronicle. "I imagine, immediately, Congress will probably convene into session and begin impeachment proceedings."

But one thing was for certain -- San Francisco would once again be fodder for conservative talk show hosts.

While it carries only symbolic weight,

1 symbolic = 1x10e-15 mg.

"Ire" is only possible if one takes seriously the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

OTOH, I think I pulled a muscle rolling my eyes....

Well, isn't that special. I suppose the fact that they have zero say in the matter doesn't bother them.

It wouldn't surprise me if Mayor Newsom and the council takes a 4 day retreat to the Bahamas so he can explain this fact to them. :)

These losers are so insignifacnt they don't deserve a posting. There is a procedure for impeachment; city resolutions don't play any part in them.

As a native San Franciscan, I am appalled that my Board of Stupidvisers let Santa Cruz beat them to the punch!! ;>)

Also, let me apologize to the rest of the country for the idiots who get elected here......trust me there are many normal people who live here who did NOT vote these idiots in! Please take pity of we Conservatives who live here trying to fight for peace, justice and the American way....it's not easy! And just think, we keep all the loons captive here (and in New York) so the rest of you are spared!! ;>) And also, a special thanks to all of you who resisted calling it Frisco.

Heck, I ALWAYS carry my Passport when I head through the Caldecott Tunnel on my way to SF or Berkeley. Never know when the border guards there might stop Americans to check. ;-)

Then again, if I drove a 1960s, exhaust-spewing VW bus with "McGovern for President" and "Viva La Raza" stickers on it, they'd let me through no questions asked!

They'll be the first to cry for help when the next catastrophe happens.

I hope Bush gives them the finger.
