If I were a Republican strategist, I’d be doing everything I could to help the Democrats play Don Quixote by trying to censure—or even better, trying to impeach—the president. Start the impeachment hearings today and load them up with Bush-bashing witnesses like George Galloway, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Ritter, and Ramsey Clark.

The absolute worst thing that can happen (and I put the odds of this at about zero) for the Republicans is that the impeachment effort succeeds and the GOP can get rid of an unpopular lame-duck whose approval ratings are dragging down the whole party. The best? Well, remember the 1998 mid-term elections, when Bill Clinton had 80% approval ratings after all his dirty laundry was aired in public.

Actually, wasn’t that Monica’s dirty laundry that was aired in public?



Well, if you want to be literal about it… ☺
