9 Rino's break from party line to vote for impeachment hearings

I saw this story on the daily kooks and another left wing blog. All I can say is bring it on, lets have even more incompetence from the do nothing congress.

Also, these republicans that voted to have hearing should have their committees taken from them by the GOP leadership and don't give them any national funds in their next election cycle.

Finally, Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul are two birds of the same feather and should be institutionalized. Both Men are nothing more than a couple of rambling nut jobs. Kucinich is a left wing loon that holds little if any clout in the do nothing congress and is playing to his fringe base of Move.org and George Soros.
9 Republicans Vote for Impeachment Hearings, 10 Abstain

In a stunning development which fell with the silence of a feather yesterday, 9 Republicans broke with their iron-fisted party to put country first, and voted to send Rep. Dennis Kucinich's article of impeachment HR 1345 to the Judiciary, where Chairman John Conyers will hold a hearings on abuses of power by the Bush administration, according to the Congressional Quaterly's CQToday. Ten Republicans abstained in this critical moment, while only 5 Dems did. The vote was neck and neck at many moments, with "Nays" pulling ahead twice.

Those Republicans are (Yea 238 - Nay 180):

Congressman Kevin Brady (TX)
Congressman Wayne Gilchrest (MD)
Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC)
Representative Don Manzullo (IL)
U.S. Congressman Tim Murphy(PA)
Congressman Ron Paul (TX)
Congressman Dave Reichert (WA)
Congressman Christopher Shays (CT)
Representative Mike Turner (OH)

One of the Republicans, Walter Jones, represents Camp LeJeune in North Carolina, one of the largest Marine bases in the country, and one which has borne heavily the sacrifice of the Iraq War.


Guess who is on the top of the list of RINO's dang.
