Pretty darn good so far.

Blagg the Axman / January 9, 2009 1:10 PM

The Dark Lord Kayne was, just so, a deceiver of commoners and a betrayer of the public trust, unto the ruin of all. His fate came upon the swift blade of an ax; the rest fell to the gods to sort out. It is an Axman’s experience that courts of law rarely deliver the retribution commanded by crimes of courtly filth, yet these same must be observed, for order and justice above all is the currency of a noble kingdom.

Its great. This whole mess has really shown how criminally inept the democratic leadership is in this state.

Steven D / January 9, 2009 3:49 PM

It's about time. Now, let's get it over with and move on.

I'm throwing a party. Any excuse to drink.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Regardless of the charges against him, I'd say impeachment and removal is warranted just for the fact that he is STARK RAVING MAD.

what's the opposite of shocked?

I'm going to miss the political theater (of the absurd)...

I hope he's gone by Lincoln's birthday.

I wish it had happened a long time ago. I'm wondering what lessons can be learned by the fact that somebody so obviously crazy could make it so far. Is this the democracy we wanted to bring to Iraq?

I'd have rather seen Bush impeached. At least the Democrats are better at taking out their own trash compared to the Republicans.

See ya pal. The man is absurd.
