    Yes, law and legality follow politics. That is to be roundly condemned, when the laws are legitimate. As far as I know, the law requiring the president to sign a change to a constitution that lets parliament vote out a president was passed legitimately.

    Republicans would love to vote out Obama in favor of someone they elected on the spot, without even bothering with impeachment.

    I'm not saying I prefer Yanukovych to have stayed, or that I know there was a better, legal way. To the contrary, I explicitly said the opposite.

    But I also said that Yanukovych says his ouster wasn't legal. Which does appear to be true, and does matter (even if not enough to undo).

    You agree it's a revolution. In fact you agreed with me entirely in that post. Except where you imply that law and legality don't count when they disagree with politics. I disagree with that.
