There are two sides to the democratic party - well, no, scratch that, there are many sides. Ok, screw it! They'll say anything for a vote and when they get called on it, it's "our fault" we must have missed the joke!
Per National Journal's Hotline:
"MA. Sen. John Kerry said last night that if Dems retake the House, there's a "solid case" to bring "articles of impeachment" against President Bush for allegedly misleading the country about pre-war intelligence, according to several Dems who attended.
Kerry was speaking at a holiday party for alumni of his WH '04 bid.
About 100 campaign vets gathered at Finn McCool's bar in D.C. to hear him. In a short speech, Kerry praised Dems who were working on Senate and House campaigns, and then said, according to one listener: "If we take back the House, there's a solid case to bring articles of impeachment against this president." Another listener heard a slight variation: "If we win back the House, I think we have a pretty solid case to bring articles of impeachment against this President." Kerry then quickly added, according to several in the audience, "Don't tell anyone I said that."
Kerry Comm. Dir. David Wade, in an email, said his boss was joking."
Oh yeah, humor, I get it. Like this joke from 2004.
