The New York Times reports that there is a growing movement amongst Republicans to impeach President Obama. – Just for the hell of it, by the look of it. It proves finally that Jeremy Clarkson was right when he said, after being chased out of Seminole, Alabama by locals outraged at Richard Hammond’s “Man love is best” and “Vote Hillary” vehicle signage:
I honestly believe that in some parts of America they’ve actually started mating with vegetables.
David Axelrod comments on the development:
I think there are a lot of challenges ahead but impeachment is not one of them. The bottom line is that it would be enormously self-destructive for the Republicans to waste time on what is a plainly empty expression of primal, partisan rage.
And the last word goes to a Republican representative from South Carolina:
Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a conservative former prosecutor, acknowledges that voters raise the issue with him, which he said he deflects with, “Have you met Joe Biden?” The exchange usually ends with laughter.
