PSST -- NOW CAN WE TALK ABOUT IMPEACHMENT?
HEAR JOURNALIST AND AUTHOR JOHN NICHOLS NOVEMBER 20 AT IN THESE TIMES IN CHICAGO FOR A POST-ELECTION DISCUSSION OF A GREAT AMERICAN TRADITION...
Politicians and the media talked a lot about presidential accountability during the fall campaign, but very little about the tool the founders created to accomplish the task: Impeachment. With the campaign done, it is time to get serious about the real work of restoring the Republic. Now that the country has voted for presidential accountability, join a real American values discussion with Nation political writer John Nichols.
NICHOLS is the author of THE GENIUS OF IMPEACHMENT: The Founders' Cure for Royalism, just out from The New Press.
THE GENIUS OF IMPEACHMENT is being hailed as an powerful and eloquent political masterwork.
Author STUDS TERKEL says: "Never within my nonagenarian memory has the case for impeachment of Bush and his equally crooked confederates been so clearly and fervently offered as John Nichols has done in this book. They are after all our public 'servants' who have rifled our savings, bled our young, and challenged our sanity. As Tom Paine said 200 years ago to another George, a royal tramp: 'Bugger off!' So should we say today. John Nichols has given us the history, the language and the arguments we will need to do so."
Activist MEDEA BENJAMIN, co-founder of Global Exchange and Code Pink, says: "John Nichols has found the cure for the current crisis. It's in the powers given us by the founders to challenge the King George of the moment."
Historian HOWARD ZINN says: "It's time we recognize that impeachment is not a radical, outlandish measure, but a constitutional procedure, historically grounded, and absolutely necessary when a president has committed 'high crimes and misdemeanors.' John Nichols makes the argument with clarity, power, and eloquence."
DAVID SWANSON, the co-founder of the AfterDowningStreet.org coalition, says: "With The Genius of Impeachment. John Nichols has produced a masterpiece that should be required reading in every high school and college in the United States."
GORE VIDAL says: "Of all the giant slayers now afoot in the great American desert, John Nichols' sword is the sharpest."
