Yesterday, vice-presidential candidate turned talking head Sarah Palin published an op-ed calling for President Barack Obama's impeachment. Rejecting her bid for continued relevance, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters Wednesday morning that he's not so into that idea.
When asked about Palin and other Republicans' eagerness for impeachment, Boehner simply repeated twice: "I disagree. I disagree."
His words follow typical Palin-style bravado on Fox News Tuesday night, in which she called Boehner weak for planning a lawsuit over Obama's use of executive power. "You don't bring a lawsuit to a gunfight," said Palin.
I guess for that you bring an op-ed instead?
In Palin's ignorant mess of recent commentary, published by Breitbart.com, she said that the influx of young immigrant hopefuls to America's borders may be "the last straw that makes the battered wife say, 'no mas.'"
Because of Obama's purposeful dereliction of duty an untold number of illegal immigrants will kick off their shoes and come on in, competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services … Securing our borders is obviously fundamental here; it goes without saying that it is his job.
Because President Obama disagrees with Palin over whether his job requires booting a bunch of immigrant children, Palin says "it's time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment." My oh my. Leave it to Palin to make Speaker Boehner look like the voice of rationality.
