Oprah's Book Club should include the CONSTITUTION

Conyers & Impeachment Showdown - July 23, 2007
What was Conyers' objection to moving forward on impeachment now? Well, he said, if he were to do that Fox News would go after him and accuse him of being partisan. I kid you not. The Democratic Chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee is basing his decisions on whether a Republican cable TV station would approve.

Contrast John Conyers’ FEARS (the current Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, to Mike Mansfield’s COURAGE (the Democratic Senate majority leader in Nixon days). Mr. Mansfield had been versed in the Constitution and had the GUTS to protect our Constitution and our system of checks and balances.

Mike Mansfield of Montana, the Democratic Senate majority leader, said on television that the Senate impeachment trial of Nixon would be televised and there would be no immunity. That meant Nixon would have to face the country under oath and if he lied he would go to prison.

I am going to ask Oprah to put the Constitution on the Oprah’s Book Club list – maybe that will get Congress to read it!
