Quote of the Day
I'm drawn to almost any piece of writing with the words 'divine love' and 'impeachment' in the first sentence. But I know the word 'divine' makes many progressive people run screaming for their cute little lives, and so one hesitates to use it.
In 2008, as a matter of fact, I had people accusing me of being a Senator Obama supporter because I wouldn't slam him.

J. C. Watts
Impeachment is not a remedy for private wrongs; it's a method of removing someone whose continued presence in office would cause grave danger to the nation.

I am neither accusing President Obama of having committed high crimes and misdemeanors nor advocating his impeachment.
