These are not the droids you're looking for

Last night, I had the rare opportunity to sit down and watch television, instead of cleaning, playing referee between children, working or whatever other emergency comes up, so I chose Countdown w/ Keith Olbermann.

Keith showed a clip where Tony Snow said (regarding Congressional investigations into the White House):
But make no mistake, based on legal precedent this is something that the drafters of this particular referral know has very little chance of going anywhere. And so the question is, why are they doing this rather than the people's business?

Excuse me? Is he seriously trying to say that the White House breaking the law is not the people's business? I half expected him to wave his hand, saying "these are not the droids you're looking for."

I recently posted about Orange Day and the grassroots efforts to begin impeachment proceedings against Cheney. I'm still 100% behind the idea of impeachment, for both Darth Cheney and King George. However, the Cindy Sheehan movement, backed by (not to be confused with, has really disappointed me. I like that they went to John Conyers' office, but I disliked the things that they have said since that time. John Conyers is not one of the bad guys, and he obviously wants impeachment as badly as I do. I respect him for showing patience, and making sure that impeachment isn't doomed to failure if he begins the proceedings.
