The Democratic Diner

The Democratic Diner
By Mark Lysgaard

The Democratic Diner is soon to open
With a healthy menu that’s fit and stable.
But head Chef Pelosi of the people’s diner,
Said, “Impeachment is off the table.”

But the impeach tree is ready and ripe
With the fruit of justice ready to be picked.
Impeaches are part of a nutritious diet
To keep democracy from getting sick.

Perhaps if “impeachment is off the table”
She really meant it’s on the floor.
Chef Conyers can pick up the fruit of justice
Since America is hungry for more.

Or maybe impeachment is on the counter
Or soon to be baking in the stove.
Impeach pie may smell good pretty soon
Unless your Bush, Cheney, or Rove.

Let’s make sure the chefs know upfront
That we are hungry for impeach pie.
Even if it follows progressive entrees
Like Medicare and minimum wage rise.

The Impeach Pie Recipe:
Well, it only takes a moment to help convince Nancy Pelosi to Impeach Bush/Cheney..

Pelosi most likely said impeachment was "off the table" to remove any appearance of conflict-of-interest that would arise if she were thrust into the presidency as a result of the coming impeachment.

What we need to do is to pressure Pelosi not to interfere with impeachment maneuverings within her party. Sending her Do-It-Yourself impeachments legitimizes her when she joins the impeachment movement in the future.

Sacks and sacks of mail are about to arrive in Nancy Pelosi's office initiating impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635). There's a little known and rarely used clause of the "Jefferson Manual" in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.That's where we come in. In addition to a House Resolution (635), or the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial. has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.

You can initiate the impeachment process and simultaneously help to convince Pelosi to follow through with the process. Do-It-Yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.
