“IMPEACHMENT ISSUE DRAWS STRONG RESPONSE AT CNN DEMOCRAT DEBATE | November 16, 2007

You might not know it from this mornings read on the CNN Presidential debates last night, but the issue of Impeachment of President Bush and VP Darth Vader was a flashpoint. It wasn’t until the second half of the “debate” but when first Senator Joe Biden brought it up, the crowd reaction was immediate, strong sustained applause. A short time later, when Rep. Dennis Kucinich made the same point and expanded on it, moderator Wolf Blitzer tried to cut him off. Again, sustained applause from the audience. The NY Times, the LA Times nor the Washington Post made any mention of impeachment, though the NY Times did find space to trivialize Kucinch’s remarks about the Patriot Act:

“While the debate started off with some of the most slashing exchanges of the campaign, it was also marked by light moments, like when Dennis J. Kucinich was asked why he was the only one on the stage who voted against the USA Patriot Act. “That’s because I read it,” he replied.”
