Is impeachment feasible? Maybe not. Is it a realistic option? Debatable. Do I wish it would happen? Hellz yeah, I do.
Impeachment Is Not Acceptable. That's what Barack Obama thinks. He went on:
"There's a way to bring an end to those practices, you know: vote the bums out," the presidential candidate said. [...] "I think you reserve impeachment for grave, grave breeches, and intentional breeches of the president's authority," he said.
Of course. What was I even thinking? We'll just wait until that happens, until Chimpy and Mr. Warmth do something really bad, because so far, they've just been....impish. And besides, there's nothin' that can stop us from "voting the bums out" now! Not disenfranchisement, not voter suppression, not election fraud, nothin'! Piece-o'-cake.

Nancy Pelosi was on Press the Meat on Sunday:

Russert asked her: "Is impeachment off the table?''

Pelosi said, "Well, you never know where the facts take you, but -- for any president -- but that isn't what we're about. What we're about is going there and having high ethical standards, fiscal soundness and a level of civility that brushes away all this fierce partisanship.''

The last thing we want 2 opposing political parties to do is be partisan. Can't we all just agree on everything? And all those "high ethical standards" have gotten us this far, right? Why, I bet, if we wish real hard, the Righties will be our bff's forever! All we have to do is be nice.

If they can do it to Clinton for...okay, you know the rest.

Barack is just being level headed, mature, reasonable and thinking about what's best for the country right now. Wow, what terrible qualities for a prospective president.

I like Barack, but I think, in this case, we're past the "grave breeches, and intentional breeches of the president's authority" stage.

I also understand the challenges of attempting impeachment. I was commenting on that particular statement, and doing a little wishful thinking.

And you're right, Anon., he is level headed, which is one reason he appeals to me.
