Will The Real Nancy Pelosi Please Stand Up?

Well, well, what do you know? With Congress approval ratings down to single figures, suddenly Dennis Kucinich's Impeachment Resolution is on the table.

I suspect it's just a stunt to get Karl Rove to testify under oath:
Rove had been scheduled to appear at the House Judiciary subcommittee hearing Thursday morning. A placard with his name sat in front of an empty chair at the witness table, with a handful of protesters behind it calling for Rove to be arrested.

A decision on whether to pursue contempt charges now goes to the full Judiciary Committee and ultimately to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Sounds exciting, doesn't it? So why isn't everybody getting more excited about this story? We-e-ell...
The House already has voted to hold two of President Bush's confidants in contempt for failing to cooperate with its inquiry into whether the administration fired nine federal prosecutors in 2006 for political reasons.

The case, involving White House chief of staff Josh Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers, is in federal court and may not be resolved before Bush's term ends in January.
Quelle surprise! Bush has already signed the pardons, which are safely locked in an Oval Office drawer.

Rove is never going to appear under oath. So it will be down to Nancy Pelosi. Put your hand up if you expect her to uphold the law of the land? Anyone???
