Sen. Robert Byrd (D-Bedlam) issued a stern warning today to President Bush:
Addressing the president in absentia, Sen. Byrd began by warning that Congress retains all its original powers under the Constitution.
"You better read that again in the Constitution," Byrd said, declaring that the Senate's powers include "serving as a court of impeachment....
"If the House impeaches you, the Senate will try you. The Senate, don't forget it, serves as a court of impeachment and has an equal say with the House on legislation."
Well... yeah. By golly, he's right!
And Byrd should know; after all, he was there the last time.
And the first time, too.
"I can hear the cuckoo singing in the cuckooberry tree...."

I'm watching this whole march toward impeachment with the inevitability of a train wreck. It's going to be bad. Do you think Bush will be impeached and if impeached, can they remove him even when it's revealed in the Senate trial that he did little or nothing wrong?
