AlJazeera.com: Kerry to push for impeachment of Bush

I don't know why this isn't getting more coverage from U.S. papers, and I'm not entirely sure Al Jazeera can be trusted, but they are claiming that John Kerry will press for the impeachment of President Bush.

Failed presidential candidate Kerry advised that he will begin the presentation of his case for President Bush's impeachment to Congress, on Monday.

Kerry said of the ["Downing Street Memo"]: "When I go back [to Washington] on Monday, I am going to raise the issue. I think it's a stunning, unbelievably simple and understandable statement of the truth and a profoundly important document that raises stunning issues here at home. And it's amazing to me the way it escaped major media discussion. It's not being missed on the Internet, I can tell you that."

Thoughts:

1) Why is this not news for the mainstream U.S. media? The once and wanna-be future king of the Democrats wants to impeach the President!
2) How will Moveon.org handle this? Their reason for being, and the origin of their name, is the belief that the President is too important to be distracted by allegations of little things like sexual harassment, rape, perjury, and obstruction of justice. Will they change their name to Dontmoveon.org? Too late -- it's taken!

UPDATE: This may be a hoax. Aljazeera.com is not the web site of the well known Al-Jazeera TV network. Other minor news organizations such as NewsMax and "Kavkaz" carrying similar Kerry quotes. INDCJournal doesn't buy it. Why is the mainstream media neither reporting the story nor debunking it?
