Nancy Pelosi is the Modern Neville Chamberlain

Mary Lyon says it all in response to Pelosi's killing of Dennis Kucinich's intent to introduce of 35 Articles of Impeachment against President Bush. (The full articles can be read here - .pdf.)

Money quote from Lyon:
But, but, but ... we don't have the votes. Maybe. Does this REALLY matter? Isn't it more important to Take A Stand? Isn't it important to stand up before all of America and all of history and put yourself on record against this epic display of abuse of power and the public's trust by saying "NO!"? You really think, after enough of a stink is made in Congress about each of the THIRTY-FIVE Articles of Impeachment and all that they mean, enough to force extended media coverage and some long overdue enlightenment of the constituents, that you actually would not have the votes of a majority of their representatives?
Ironically, Pelosi and other Democratic enablers of Bush's and Cheney's high crimes and misdemeanors may find themselves without enough votes come November. And if enough people get pissed off, the votes may bleed from Senator Obama too.
