Patriots To Man NIdaho Overpasses

Dunno if this is a joke or not. But an item was posted on the Kootenai County Reagan Republican Facebook wall promoting an event called “Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment — North Idaho.” Seems the “event” is part of a larger effort to (wo)man overpasses demanding the impeachment of President Barack Obama. The effort in North Idaho is calling for overpasses from Post Falls to Wallace to be (wo)manned Aug. 6. The group  has a Facebook wall. This note accompanied the Reagan Republican post: “We would like to get as many patriots together as possible for this event. The more people, the more overpasses we can cover. Imagine the impact if every overpass from Post Falls to Wallace was manned on August 6th!”


Blagojevich Impeached 59-0

Illinois lawmakers have not only thrown out Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, they have barred him from ever holding public office in the state again. Both votes were 59-0. Blagojevich’s removal comes nearly two months after his arrest on charges of trying to sell Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat. He is the first U.S. governor in more than 20 years to be removed by impeachment. Democratic Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn automatically became the new governor/AP. More here.
