This is good news for those of us who aspire to be more than we are. To those of us who reach for the stars. To those of us who one day hope to achieve the kind of office in life from which we can be summarily ousted by a majority vote of the Senate.
According to Harry Reid, anyone, anywhere can be impeached, especially if you happen to be the head of a special interest group who is pleading with the Congressional supercommittee to please, please, please not raise taxes.
A new wave of pessimism colored super committee talks on Tuesday as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) blasted anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist for meddling with the panel’s progress and suggested that the American public “impeach” him.
“It’s obvious that Grover Norquist has a lot of pull in the Republican caucus and I think that’s an understatement,” Reid said. “So far, I haven’t seen any indication that Republicans are willing to agree to this balanced approach.”
Asked what the public should take away from the state of talks, Reid said, “maybe they should impeach Grover Norquist.”
The public doesn’t have that sort of power, Harry, but whatevs. Maybe we’ll do it anyway just to make you happy.
