Impeachment Group Seeks Donations to Air Bush Impeachment Ad

The National Impeachment Network has created an ad that seeks to prod the Legislature to impeach President George W. Bush. It's asking for donations to enable them to air the ad in various markets around the country.

The National Impeachment Network is supported by grassroots groups such as Code Pink, Veterans for Peace and Republicans for Impeachment and is headed by Ralph Lopez of Daily Kos.

The post reads:
A version of this ad has already run in Vermont on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN Headlines, and other stations. We are going over the heads of congressmen and appealing directly to their constituents in order to generate pressure for impeachment. Impeachment can be accomplished in three days with single article like refusing to obey congressional subpoenas. In an up-or-down vote before the entire Congress, even Republicans who are not part of the rabid right will start hearing from their constituents to impeach. Bush has no friends left, and he shouldn’t. They can do it. And the future of democracy will be that much more secure, with his unprecedented law-breaking firmly punished. Email: ralphlopez AT hotmail DOT com if you would like an ad made to target your own congressmember. You can run this ad in your town many times for as little as $1000.
The ad opens with clips of Bush speaking at annual Correspondent's Club dinner, joking about not being able to find WMDs. It also features images of flag-draped caskets and grieving military families. It also features a clip of author and former Deputy District Attorney of Los Angeles County Vincent Bugliosi's congressional testimony about the lack of WMDs, in which he said:
"How dare they do what they did, how dare they?"
The ad also asks viewers to contact legislators. Watch the ad yourself:
