"Gerald Ford said after the Nixon was forced to resign under threat of impeachment that an ‘impeachable offense’ is whatever the Congress will vote for at a given time

I think this is the first Gerald Ford quote I’ve ever seen. And even this he ripped off from Warhol.

“Art is anything you can get away with.”–Andy Warhol

Show Congress that there is public demand for removing the Great Usurper. Everyone is welcome to join in. This is a nonpartisan effort.

“Great Usurper” and “nonpartisan” in the same paragraph is comedy gold.

Gold, Jerry!

A more apropos Gerald Ford quote is:

The political lesson of Watergate is this: Never again must America allow an arrogant, elite guard of political adolescents to by-pass the regular party organization and dictate the terms of a national election.

We are not here to argue about what is impeachable, but to demand that this lawless, subversive and anti-American president be removed from office," the organizers wrote on the Impeach Obama Week website.

Ah, the right wing equivalent of comfort food. We don’t care why presidents can be impeached; all we know is that this one’s got to go. We’ll worry about the details later.

Reminds me of the wonderful scene in the Ox Bow Incident, where the angry lynch mob with torches surrounds the jail holding the cattle rustlin’ suspect. Out comes the sheriff and fires his gun into the air. “This is America and we don’t do that here!”, he shouts to the crowd. “We’ll give him a fair trial, and then we’ll hang him”.

Perfect.

So you are relying on the Most Boring President in the 20th Century for advice?

Wasn’t it Lyndon Johnson who said “Ford? He’s so damn dumb he can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.” ?

Only he said something other than ‘chew gum.’

Translation

We don’t know diddly squat and we don’t care; we just want to lynch the black guy in the White House.

That quote is actually one of the big unasked questions floating out there right now. I have yet to hear a journalist ask any of these republicans babbling on about impeachment…“what exactly are the grounds for impeachment? Be specific”

Which is a pretty clear indication that the media isn’t concerned about the Constitution or actual law breaking. They just want to cover another impeachment…it did wonders for their ratings last time.

I’ve been waiting for them to come up with “supreme autocrat,” but I guess they are just not that inventive.

First…

…isn’t it interesting that since Boehner has said that nobody is seriously talking about impeachment, that now when a republican group starts talking about impeachment…they are a “fringe” group all of a sudden. Seems like it was just yesterday that the TP was most definitely alive and well and taking control of the GOP, now they are merely a fringe group…wait, what? That WAS yesterday??

Then color me confused.

Boehner has created a much bigger problem than I think he realizes. The TP is not going to just forget about the lawsuit or impeachment after November. They are going to be feeding themselves a steady diet of talking about impeachment…and after talking about that long, they are going to want to actually try it.
