Impeachment Lite:  More Drama, Less Binding

image

What to do, what to do?  Four more months until the mid-term rapture . . . we already said we won’t be legislating,  Benghaz-IRS-Gate is getting old . . . ???  Must be time for IMPEACHMENT!!  Yep, that’s the ticket!

Apparently the untimely ouster of Rep. Cantor (R-VA) has breathed new life into the Speaker’s career and put a spring in his shuffle.  Suddenly there’s still time for carpe diem-ish legacy-making gambits of historical proportions, moves that will etch the name “Boehner” into American History books.  At least the ones in Texas . . .

And so it is that Speaker Boehner, with George Will whispering sweet nothings about becoming the “legislature’s vindicator” in his ear, is preparing to go down as “the empty suit who files an empty suit” in the ever perspicacious words of Mr. Pierce.

Michael Steel spox-splains it to us:

The President has a clear record of ignoring the American people‚Äôs elected representatives and exceeding his constitutional authority, which has dangerous implications for both our system of government and our economy,  The House has passed legislation to address this, but it has gone nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate, so we are examining other options.
