Boulder lets Cambridge do the heavy (symbolic) lifting

Colorado’s Daily Camera reports that the Boulder City Council is unlikely to pass a resolution calling for Congress to consider the impeachment of President George Bush. Says one councilor: "I am not interested in engaging in purely symbolic acts. … We obviously lack the power to act on any of the constitutional violations of the current administration."

That reasoning didn’t stop Cambridge, Mass., which passed just such a resolution in 2006. Given its habit of weighing in on national and even global affairs, perhaps it’s time for the Cambridge City Council to pass a resolution condemning the inaction of its liberal brethren in Boulder.
