In the interest of being fair and balanced: you may notice a disproportionate number of towns in Vermont on this list. That might be because Vermont is the only state whose state legislature has passed a resolution of its own (several other states have introduced resolutions that did not pass) And this list comes from predominately democratic places. Fair enough, but these resolutions shouldn't be about partisanship. They are about removing from office the worst administration we've ever had. And actually, it would only make more sense if Republicans would be working to oust Bush in order to restore the integrity of their party, which at this point has none.

The most recent city to pass a resolution is West Hollywood, CA, which did so unanimously.

The list is encouraging, but it should be 2 or 3 or 8 times as long. Maybe then, Congress will take a cue from the Vermont State Legislature.

Why are some of them bolded?

Oh, that was my doing, just pointing out some of the bigger cities and significant towns (like Telluride, CO) that might get lost among all those towns in Vermont.

You can add Takoma Park, MD to the list as of this Monday. Might not rate a "bold", but it got Tucker Carlson's attention -- he interviewed our mayor and she cleaned his clock.
