    It requires a 2/3rds majority, remember? And no Democrat would ever go along with it. Hell, even some Senate Republicans would balk at supporting any fever impeachment dream coming out of the House.

    That's not to say I wouldn't put it past the crazies in the House, however. They aren't bound by logical thinking.

    •  Never Underestimate Democrats (0+ / 0-)

      20 of 53 Democratic senators are up for election in 2014. If every one of them loses, that's 67 Republican senators. I wouldn't' put it past some Democrats, especially seeing a wave like that, to vote with them.

      I wouldn't put it past Democrats to lose every election, any more than I would put it past Republicans to all vote to convict an impeached Obama.
