Democrats.com "disconnected from reality" on impeachment of Cheney?

I just received an email from Democrats.com indicating that John Conyers is considering Cheney Impeachment Hearings. The email reads:

Congressman John Conyers

On Thursday, Chairman John Conyers' House Judiciary Committee held a hearing at which Attorney General Michael Mukasey said that he would not investigate torture or warrantless spying, he would not enforce contempt citations, and he would treat Justice Department opinions as providing immunity for crimes.

None of this was new, but perhaps it touched something in Conyers that had not been touched before. Following the hearing, he and two staffers met for over an hour with two members of Code Pink and discussed activism and impeachment, including Congressman Robert Wexler's proposal to begin impeachment hearings on Cheney.

Conyers expressed his concerns about what might happen following an impeachment, the danger of installing a Bush replacement or losing an election. But he said he's listening to several advocates for impeachment, including Liz Holtzman and David Swanson of Democrats.com. He hinted he could be swayed by a convincing argument, leaning out of his chair for dramatic effect.

AAPP: What the hell is wrong with Democrats.com? Don't they understand they will endanger losing the election to impeach Cheney? yes, I would love to impeach the bastard. But should that be our (America's) top priority now? So they want to rally the Republicans? The Democrats.com group seriously needs to get a grip. Democrats and democrats.com need to focus more on electing a new Democratic administration. These aggressive progressives, as they like to call themselves, need to triple their energy on the "inclusion" of blacks and other groups into their ranks. Rather than being an 'exclusive group' of white liberals. But that just might be too aggressive and progressive for Democrats.com
