The GOP’s Newest Tic: “Impeach Obama, Impeach Obama, Impeach Obama…”
Not to be confused with Rudy Giuliani’s 9/11 Tourette’s Syndrome.
On her TV show last Friday night, Rachel Maddow said the GOP’s constant hiccupping of “Impeach Obama, Impeach Obama” is like an involuntary tic. She also compared it to incontinence, like when somebody coughs or sneezes too hard and then, “oops, ahem, uhh, I need to be excused for a minute.”
And this has nothing to do with Benghazi or whatever the Republicans’ fake scandal du jour happens to be. The Far Right has been having a mass bedwetting since the day Obama took office. Rachel Maddow played back the audio of a phone call to Michael “Voice of the Inbreds” Savage from March 2009:
“What they’re doing right now is destroying this country. Everyone that I know of, at least, is very angry about it. We’re very upset. We want this guy out. We want him to be impeached.”
“What I don’t like is that this guy is doing this by executive order, one after the other and the American people are sitting like a bunch of shmucks watching a dictatorship emerge right before their eyes. I think it is time to talk about impeachment. Somebody has to get this guy under control. He’s out of control. Thank you for the call.”
Rachel Maddow said:
“Republicans on the right love talking about impeaching President Obama even when they’re not sure exactly why. It’s almost like an involuntary tic. They sneeze and a little ‘Impeach Obama!’ squeezes out without them meaning to.”
Last week's foulest burst of incontinence came out of James Inhofe, who shat his pants with:
“Of all the great cover-ups in history, we’re talking the Pentagon Papers, the Iran-Contra, Watergate and all the rest of them, this, I said back on November 28 on Fox, is going to go down as the most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history. People need to know how serious this is. To me, this, people may be starting to use the ‘I-word’ before too long. The ‘I-word’ is ‘impeach.’”
Well, you’ve gotta give James Inhofe credit for one thing: He’s fully aware that his inbred constituents need to have every little word spelled out for them.
