Impeach Partisan Blogfathers
Realignment, not impeachment was posted Saturday night at Daily Kos.
All the "impeachment" talk seems to be silly for a couple of reasons. One, do we really want Cheney as president? Two, if not Cheney because of scandal, do we really want Dennis Hastert as president? Three, do we want to follow the example of Connecticut?
Connecticut had a corrupt, incompetent governor in John Rowland. Under investigation for his corruption, Rowland's approval ratings were in the dumps and he eventually resigned. Things looked great for the state Democratic Party at the time, with the state GOP in disarray. Then Republican Lt. Gov. Jodi Rell took the reigns of the state and began to clean house. She now has the highest approval rating of all governors in the country. She will have no serious opposition in 2006.
Impeachment would, at best, saddle us with Cheney or Hastert in the Oval Office, at worst, give Republicans an opportunity to clean house and redeem themselves. Screw that. Now's not the time to give them a lifeline. It's time to throw them the anvil.
And that's why I don't care for partisan bloggers.
I could care less if impeachments hurts the Dems' chances in future races.
The Bush Administration has committed countless constitutional crimes that should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Remember Jon Stewart on Crossfire?
He wasn't just criticizing clowns on the right.
Only a partisan clown wouldn't want the other side to reform themselves.
If only...real Republicans could stand up and win their party back.
If only...real liberals could open their eyes to the faux progs in our midst.
