Impeachment Wanted by the Elitists

Howard Zinn has a piece out called Impeachment by the People but what Zinn really means is he wants the country run by people who think exactly as he does and nothing else is acceptable.
These are the Democrats who were brought to power in November by an electorate fed up with the war, furious at the Bush Administration, and counting on the new majority in Congress to represent the voters. But if sanity is to be restored in our national policies, it can only come about by a great popular upheaval, pushing both Republicans and Democrats into compliance with the national will.
The Democrats are the majority by the slimmest of margins - there is no "great popular upheaval" except in the minds of people who can't get it into their heads that the 60's are over like Professor "Blame America" Zinn. It is truly sad that Zinn thinks the current status is insane because in his mind he truly believes that you would have to be crazy not to think exactly as he does.

Zinn argues in his piece that the time is ripe for the impeachment of George W Bush. He argues for a grassroots movement towards these ends by "the people". It is more accurate to say that impeachment is only being argued for by the get naked for world peace nutjobs - not the people. Get off the sidelines and run for office Mr. Zinn if you think "the people" are so strongly behind you and that the "national will" is behind impeachment. Don't hold your breath for that though because it's easier for people like Mr. Zinn to tell people what to do from their ivory towers.

Zinn is perhaps best known for his People's History of the United States but I've long wondered if at some point someone will write a People's History of Vietnam and include Howard Zinn's role in helping to sell out Vietnam to the communists and the massive bloodshed and flight that accompanied it.
