Leahy does the unthinkable

Gonzales invokes 9/11 and Leahy cuts him off:

"Mr. Gonzales, I am aware that we were attacked. I was here in this building, and I joined with Republicans and Democrats -- virtually every member of Congress -- to give you the authority we thought you needed. Now answer my question."

Omigod, the earth is going to open up and swallow him. Lightning will strike him dead. Karl Rove will feed him to ravening pundits on live TV. And voters are going to think that Democrats are weak on national security!!!

Remember, it is Vt. where the citizens of Newfane are discussing memorializing their Congressman in favor of impeachment at their town meeting. Link.

Sorry - I haven't been following KagroX's diaries closely. Is this the "it only takes one state" to impeach idea? If so, I'd be thrilled to have it come out of Vermont.

This was a great moment in the otherwise agonizing hearing.
