Beach Impeach, San Francisco

January 6, 2007 -- Over 1000 people gathered in Nancy Pelosi's district, on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, to spell out the message "IMPEACH!" "America is a great country," said event organizer Brad Newsham, a local cab driver and author. "But President Bush has betrayed our faith. He mislead us into a disastrous war, and is trampling on our Constitution. He has to go. Now. I hope Nancy Pelosi is listening today."

A majority of Americans share Newsham's sentiments. A 2006 Zogby poll found that 52% of Americans agreed with the statement: "If President Bush wiretapped American citizens without the approval of a judge, do you agree or disagree that Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment?"

I live in Marin and was there at the BeachImpeach event. You might be able to see me on the crossbar of the "A"!
It was an exhilarating day-Pelosi took impeachment off the table and we put it on the beach! I'd love to do this every day until Bush is not only gone but in the Hague with a cyanide capsule in his cowboy boot!
