Move Toward Impeachment for Ahmadinejad

Hot Air jumped on this one. Looks like another shot has been fired against Stinky McMonkeyface internally. First the Iranian parliament voted to cut his term short, and now this:

Iranian reformist lawmakers have started collecting signatures in Parliament to demand the impeachment of the country’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. So far, 38 signatures have been collected out of the 72 required to formally summon Ahmadinejad and request his impeachment…

Referring to a resolution of the UN Security Council unanimously approved on 23 December which imposes sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear programme, the MP said “it is the last straw which has made Iranians loose their patience.”…

Issa Saharkhiz, [reformist] editor and political analyst, told Adnkronos International (AKI) that “Ahmadinejad’s golden era is over.”

“I don’t think Ahmadinejad will leave the presidency before his mandate expires but I am also convinced he will not succeed in winning a second term,” added Saharkhiz. “Many factions and personalities who supported Ahmadinejad’s candidature at the 2005 presidential elections have already abandoned him and don’t spare criticism, even harsh and direct, of the president and his government.”

So it most likely won’t happen, but we can all dream right? On the bright side we’ll most likely avoid a conflict with Iran, since his chances of reelection look like they’re getting slimmer by the minute and the people seem to be growing weary of fundamentalist politicians.
