He’s Impeachable, You Know
The New York Times makes the case for impeaching Eric Holder

Res Ipsa Loquitur
Item 172 in a list of 172

Article II of the Constitution grants Congress the power to impeach “the president, the vice president and all civil officers of the United States.” The phrase “civil officers” includes the members of the cabinet (one of whom, Secretary of War William Belknap, was impeached in 1876).


A cabinet officer, like a judge or a president, may be impeached only for commission of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” But as the Nixon and Clinton impeachment debates reminded us, that constitutional phrase embraces not only indictable crimes but “conduct ... grossly incompatible with the office held and subversive of that office and of our constitutional system of government.”


An attorney general called before Congress to discuss the workings of the Justice Department can claim the protection of “executive privilege” and, if challenged, can defend the (doubtful) legitimacy of such a claim in the courts. But having elected to testify, he has no right to lie, either by affirmatively misrepresenting facts or by falsely claiming not to remember events.


The real question is whether Republicans and Democrats are prepared to defend the constitutional authority of Congress against the implicit claim of an administration that it can do what it pleases and, when called to account, send an attorney general of the United States to Capitol Hill to commit amnesia on its behalf.

Oozing pus-bag Chucky Schumer

Schumer: No Need to Return Maher’s $1M, ‘He’s a Comedian’


The Set-up
The manufactured brouhaha over Rush Limbaugh's (out of context) Sandra Fluke "slut" comment  necessarily produced tits for tats.  Most pointedly,  Progressive favorite Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin a "cunt," and a "dumb twat."   In response, Maher donated $1,000,000 to President Barack Obama's  super PAC.  One can only speculate what Maher hoped to achive with this "hush money," but it looks like it was an appeal for Obama to employ his trademark thuggery to hush the media. 

Enter Chucky Schumer.
.Asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether Maher’s money should be returned, Schumer said no.

The oozing pus
The bottom line is [said Chucky] that Rush Limbaugh’s comments were just nasty and directed at a particular young woman who had a particular point of view and was expressing herself.  Bill Maher’s a comedian, it’s much different. Rush Limbaugh has tremendous weight in the Republican Party, no one will rebut him. Bill Maher‘s a comedian who’s on at 11 o‘clock at night but has very little influence on what’s happening here.  [The Blaze]

With a straight face, too.

In the previous post we learned that an electric car, built in 1896, delivered the same performance as does the Government Motors ChevyVolt.  Next thing, they'll prolly announce 3-D pictures.

The government's electric car

“For General Motors and the Obama administration, the new Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid represents the automotive future, the culmination of decades of high-tech research financed partly with federal dollars.” New York Times

Meet the Roberts electric car. Built in 1896, it gets a solid 40 miles to the charge — exactly the mileage Chevrolet advertises for the Volt, the highly touted $31,645 electric car General Motors CEO Dan Akerson called “not a step forward, but a leap forward.
