Voting for Impeachment: "There is something satisfying about the fact that the communities that are voting on impeachment -- which range from urban centers to college towns to rural towns -- cannot be stereotyped. That is as it should be, says Buzz Davis, the Veterans for Peace activist who has been leading the impeachment campaign that has qualified two referendums for the November ballots in Wisconsin cities and hopes to qualify many more for next spring's local election ballots. 'Impeachment is not a partisan issue but a question of whether our nation will live under the rule of law as our Founding Fathers believed,' argues Davis. "
Isn't this an example of the most brazen hypocrisy that a liberal rag like The Nation  suddenly becomes a defender of the "original intent" of the Founding Fathers.

Say, Mr. Nation, what about gun control, abortion, homosexual marriage, giving foreign terrorists the rights of American citizens, banishing of religion from the public forum, federalism vs. radical democracy, etc., etc., etc.

Of course, if public education would teach the words of the constitution instead of their liberal agenda, then demogogic articles like those in The Nation  would have no currency with the American people.

I wonder if this means that The Nation  will now support Supreme Court Justices who will be strict constructionists? Don't bet the rent.

Clinton says Republican extremists divided country | US News | "Former President Bill Clinton told Iowa's Democratic Party faithful on Saturday that the actions of 'an extreme sliver' of the Republican Party have backfired and 'profoundly divided' the country."

It's a tough world. Reminds me of the little boy that told his teacher, "Ma'am, the whole fight started when Bobby hit me back."
