Rally Anyone?



At the American Street, eRobin has some local news:

As of now it looks like Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) will be allowed by the Republicans to hold his hearings into pre-war planning and propaganda in the Capitol instead of in a room in the DNC building. Let freedom reign, huh? Of course who knows what tricks Tex Sensenbrenner has up his sleeve. He may interrupt the proceedings to bang his shoe on a table or cut the mics.

Starting at 2:30pm ET, C-Span will be covering the hearings, forum, whatever the Republicans are forcing them to be called. If you live in or near D.C., you can join in the post-hearing/forum march (it’s a march!!) from Lafayette Square Park to the White House to deliver Conyers’ letter to BushCo. The letter has over 540,000 signatures - a big, peaceful march to deliver it would be a beautiful thing.

Maybe a weenie roast afterward? Maybe a mock impeachment? Maybe a real one? (No, I’m not holding my breath.)


  1. Thanks, AH. Ben Slade of the Progressive Reader e-mailed me about the rally earlier today, but I hadn’t gotten it posted yet. Progressive Democrats of America has more about it.
