Feelin' Impeachy

Political Wire reports that Insight Magazine has some scoop on-wuh?-impeachment hearings.

"The Bush administration is bracing for impeachment hearings in Congress," Insight magazine reports.
"Sources said a prelude to the impeachment process could begin with hearings by the Senate Judiciary Committee in February. They said the hearings would focus on the secret electronic surveillance program and whether Mr. Bush violated the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act."
Said the source: "Our arithmetic shows that a majority of the committee could vote against the president. If we work hard, there could be a tie."
Dear lord, what is a subsidiary of the Moonie Times doing throwing around that kind of crazy talk?

Is it crazy, or have the kingmakers realized they've gone too far, and they're looking for a scapegoat to boot out to pasture with the hopes of leaving Brand GOP intact? Tin foil hat, or crash helmet? It's just so hard to tell these days.

Since I've no bloody clue, I'll just turn it over to one of my favorite bitches, Thesaurus Rex, who gives it the appropriate snark treatment, referring to the above photo:
This photo was taken today and accompanies an Insight Magazine piece about how the White House is gearing up for impeachment hearings...
But seriously, he's aged about twenty years since last year's election. He looks like hammered shit.
Aww, that's almost enough to make me feel sorry for him.

Hahaha. Just kidding!
