Impeachment is a Broad Political Process

It takes time for a big idea to be chewed into small enough pieces that the average voter can swallow and digest.

It takes time for the national "mainstream" press to screw up its courage (considering the heavy-hitters among their advertizers—where the money comes from, afterall) to launch into something as detailed (sordid) and volatile (outright disruptive) as impeaching both the President and Vice President of the United States.

It may take even longer for elected representatives to understand that their re-election depends on shifting their own gears and getting down to the awful business of fulfilling their oaths of office, but they will—one way or the other.


  • Tom Englehardt writes eloquently of the current President.
  • Andrew Bard Schmookler views the press.
  • ImpeachPAC reads Zogby loud and clear; 53% of us are ready for the other shoe.
