Reason Number 36

Well, Dennis Kucinich now has one more charge to add to his 35 articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush. CNN's Lou Dobbs believes Bush should be impeached for failing to protect American consumers from the recent salmonella outbreak which has made 383 people sick.

At about 4:30 into the video Dobbs expresses his frustration:
You know, I have heard a lot of reasons over the years as to why George W. Bush should be impeached. For them to leave the Food and Drug Administration in this state -- its leadership in this sorry condition and to have no capacity apparently or will to protect the American consumer –- that is alone to me sufficient reason to impeach a president who has made this agency possible and has ripped its guts out in its ability to protect the American consumer. It’s insane what is going on here.
I totally understand the anger over this... I hate poop on my salad too... but I think there are much better reasons (about 35 or so) for impeachment... wiretapping, outing a CIA agent, suspending habeas corpus, torture, starting a war on false pretense, etc.

By the way, if you've ever wondered "how do tomatoes get salmonella," then you should check out Slate's excellent explainer on the subject.
