Madison City Council Bush Impeachment Vote Defeated

Via Michelle Malkin

The sole voice of reason and sanity ...

... Thuy Pham-Remmele, an immigrant from Vietnam, who said she would resign from the city council if it voted to recommend impeachment.

"I have been through war more than any of you can imagine," Pham-Remmele said.

Recounting her premature birth after her mother fell as the family was fleeing the French in 1948, she proceeded to speak of America's exit from the Vietnam War as a turning point in world opinion against the United States.

"It's the part you chose not to look at that should haunt you forever," Pham-Remmele said.
Saying she had not been home in 34 years and characterizing her decision to become a naturalized U.S. citizen as painful, Pham-Remmele said she knew the atrocities of war.

While lauding impeachment advocates' good intentions, she asked, "Do you think Congress will listen to you?"

Looking directly at the spectator gallery, Pham-Remmele said, "It is easy to be like Jane Fonda and walk with the communists … and feel good about it. If you really want to save lives, think of something more concrete."
