Clear the Air and Hold Hearings on Bush

I chastised the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in an email today for constantly asking for money, while congress remains inactive about bringing Bush et al to accounting in hearings:

Your constant email solicitation of funds is becoming more of a source of
annoyance considering the pervasive inaction of the Democrats to institute Bush and Cheney impeachment hearings and to bring the oil companies to accountability for windfall profits monopolizing international crisis mentality.
I'll give you more money when you go to work.
And don't write me about how much you're doing--it is seriously NOT happening and you know it!

I was probably too harsh, but in case they skim over the emails, they'll get a good gist of what I'm saying while they skim.

Tonight, by way of the Huffington Post, I see that Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame has taken the same tack:

In terms of imminent, meaningful action by the Congress, however, the question of whether the president should be impeached (or, less severely, censured) remains premature. More important, it is essential that the Senate vote—hopefully before the November elections, and with overwhelming support from both parties—to undertake a full investigation of the conduct of the presidency of George W. Bush, along the lines of the Senate Watergate Committee's investigation during the presidency of Richard M. Nixon. --Senate Hearings on Bush, Now by Carl Bernstein, Vanity Fair

It's in the air, and only fear and complacency stand in the way of getting this country back on track.
