Constitutional Crisis for Fun and Profit

Republicans and Democrats are consumed in a vicious debate over which party wants to talk about impeachment more. Democrats say it is lunatic Republicans who are scheming, as we speak, to impeach the president. Republicans say it is manipulative Democrats who are eager to play up the nonexistent chance of impeachment to motivate their voters in the midterm elections. It is certainly true that conservatives have talked about and advocated impeachment, most recently Sarah Palin in a call to arms.

In fact, it has long demonstrated a positive allergy to the topic, believing that it will be a politically damaging nonstarter.
