Why Can't We Do this in the US?

Today, in Italy, Italy's prime minister, Romano Prodi, lost a confidence vote Thursday in the Senate and will be resigning his office. He was in office for 20 months, but quickly lost the confidence of parliament amid corruption charges.

Imagine if we could have done this in the US congress? We wouldn't have to wait until Jan 20, 2009 to replace Dubya.

Oh those crazy Italians!

The Italians aren't crazy. This is amazing. If only we could do this...but then you would have less to write about in your blog without good ole dubya around.
