Russ Douthat's Impeachment Game

The same one his like-minded colleagues are playing.

Obama's Impeachment Game. (The New York Times, 8/2/2014)  

Here's where conservatives go off the railsOver the last month, the Obama political apparatus — a close aide to the president, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the “independent” voices at MSNBC — has been talking nonstop about an alleged Republican plan to impeach the president.

No, they haven't.  They have simply been shining a light on the Republcans' impeachment chatter, of which there are abundant examples.

Such as the one I share here.

Douthat can tap dance as furiously as he wants, hoping the noise will distract us, but the fact of the matter is we have talk radio, a favorite place for conservative elected officials to relax, let down their guard, share their latest talking points, as Kingston recently did with Aaron McCready
