When I heard that Vermont passed legislation last week calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, I was excited, shocked and a little stunned. These reactions were not because of the news of a state taking such a strong stance against the current administration, but because I was reminded that a state like Vermont exists. I mean, come on, as the second least-populated state, does anyone really remember the folks over there?
So basically they’re so bored in Vermont that they thought of passing this resolution as some sort of way to ‘send a message’ to the Bush administration. But I think in order to make a strong statement, you have to have some sort of reputation. I’m sorry, but it’s hard to believe a state that, according to Yahoo! News, has ‘an act relating to home-fermented beverage competitions’ also on the agenda of their legislature this week. Thus, people over in Vermont who are seriously fed up with the current government will lose the strength of their intended message because no one in the nation will take this seriously
