Still Dreamin’ Of Impeachment

I can't believe sane adults consider the impeachment of President Barack Obama to be a legitimate possibility. The Republicans who do are cut from the same cloth as the Democrats who supported the impeachment of George W. Bush until the end of his second term. From Steve Benen/MSNBC: “The very idea that President Obama is guilty of impeachable offenses is obviously silly. And yet, the 'I' word sure does get thrown around a lot. Two weeks ago, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) – ostensibly one of the more responsible Republican senators, capable of working with Democrats – said he’d support impeaching the president if Obama continued to transfer detainees from Guantanamo Bay. This morning, another Republican lawmaker said that if impeachment came to an up-or-down vote, it’d 'probably' pass. You can find the full story here.

Question: Don't impeachment do-or-die individuals realize the commotion such an attempt would create?
