Korean president impeached 

South Korean president Roh Moo-hyun has been impeached for "illegal electioneering and incompetence." By that standard, perhaps Bush should be impeached too! One disturbing fact, though:
The impeachment passed by a vote of 193 to 2, well above the 181 votes needed for the measure. Many pro-Roh lawmakers had been forcibly removed from the chamber by Assembly security and were unable to vote.
The head of the main pro-Roh party called it "a coup attempt under the mask of the law."
