From An Immaterial World

SAN FRANCISCO - City supervisors passed a resolution asking their Democratic congressional delegation to pursue the impeachment of President Bush for mishandling the war in Iraq and cutting civil liberties.

"I think the case is clear, and I think it's appropriate for us to weigh in," said Supervisor Chris Daly, who sponsored the measure.

The Board of Supervisors voted 7-3 Tuesday night in favor of the resolution, which also calls for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney.

...Mayor Gavin Newsom took the latest vote in stride. "It's probably going to shatter the status quo in this country when it passes," Newsom joked. "I imagine, immediately, Congress will probably convene into session and begin impeachment proceedings." ...

The House Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who represents much of San Francisco, repeated Tuesday what she has told her constituents: "Win the election. Then you can change the policy of our country."
