Moonbats in heaven:
Voters in two Vermont towns approved measures Tuesday calling for the indictment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for what they consider violations of the Constitution.
More symbolic than anything, the items sought to have police arrest Bush and Cheney if they ever visit Brattleboro or nearby Marlboro or to extradite them for prosecution elsewhere—if they’re not impeached first.
In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012-1,795. In Marlboro, which held a town meeting on the issue, it was 43-25 with three abstentions.
“It really carries no weight,” said Brattleboro Town Clerk Annette Cappy. “Our town attorney has no legal authority to draw up any papers to allow our police officers to do so, but the gentleman who initiated the petition, got the signatures, wanted it on the ballot to make a statement.”
The measure in Marlboro isn’t binding because it didn’t appear on the warning for the meeting, according to Nora Wilson.
“It was emotional. There were heartfelt speeches on both sides,” Wilson said.
The question put to voters in Brattleboro referred to “crimes against our Constitution” but did not specify the allegations.
In Brattleboro, a steady stream of voters paraded into the Union High School gym to cast their ballots on a day when school board elections and Vermont’s presidential primary were also on the slate.
Voters interviewed after casting ballots said they saw the article as an opportunity to express their frustration over the war in Iraq and Bush’s tenure in general.
Break out the Chavista berets!
Update 8:34pm Eastern. Stephen Spruiell reports from Hillary campaign HQ…
Here in Columbus, Ohio, Hillary Clinton will meet her public tonight after what looks to be a successful day in Ohio. The campaign is broadcasting CNN on a giant projector screen for the crowd of several hundred, which just cheered after seeing a graphic that showed Clinton with a large lead (so far) over Obama in Ohio. The next headline CNN displayed was “Citizens of Brattleboro, Vermont pass resolution to arrest Bush, Cheney.” The crowd went really wild at that.
