Are Democrats Mad Enough Over Corporate Donations To GOP To Impeach John Roberts?

Just when you thought Democrats couldn’t get any more ridiculous……..well, really, that thought probably hadn’t occurred, since we all know that Democrats are always quite capable of doing incredible stupid things. Like this

With Democrats increasingly outraged (WT-yeah, there’s a shocker, Dems being outraged) over the Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision that allowed unlimited corporate spending in elections — a change conservatives have been more successful at taking advantage of — a Democratic congressman is raising the prospect of impeaching the Supreme Court’s chief justice over the issue.

“I mean, the Supreme Court has done a tremendous disservice to the United States of America,” Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) told The Huffington Post on Tuesday. “They have done more to undermine our democracy with their Citizens United decision than all of the Republican operatives in the world in this campaign. They’ve opened the floodgates, and personally, I’m investigating articles of impeachment against Justice Roberts for perjuring during his Senate hearings, where he said he wouldn’t be a judicial activist, and he wouldn’t overturn precedents.”

This begs the question, is he just trying to fire up his little moonbat base, since he is in a tough race, leading his challenger Art Robinson by just 6 points, after beating his last three opponents by an average of over 38%, or, is he really this unhinged to make a run at impeaching John Roberts for following the principles of the United States Constitution? Personally, I do not care for all the corporate money in elections, it often makes candidates beholden to those special interests. Like Democrats with SEIU and the other unions are. That said, Citizens United was the right decision. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that companies cannot donate to campaigns and such. They are well within their rights to petition the government.

As I’ve written before (I could have sworn I had a big post on it, but, cannot find it. Oh, well), the best way to reduce the effect of money in politics is to put the burden of propriety on elected officials, not donators, who are just following their 1st Amendment Rights. Campaign finance reform should be aimed at elected officials. But, anyhow, back to Petey, jeez, someone get him some Prozac, OK? I say, though, go for it, Pete, during the lame duck session of the House: it’ll be yet another great way to show the People how insane, deranged, and out of touch Democrats are.

    I think he should go for it too. Put the bill up as soon as they return to the floor.

    Hmmm..Campaign finance…. that’s right there in the first amendment right? Isn’t it right after the clause stating the separation between the church and any form of government?

    of course foreign companies and governments should be able to buy and sell American politicians after all we do support a free market don’t we? And those social conservative muslim governments HATES them liberals with their women’s rights and abortions and yes, global climate change nonsense.

    Teach, love the new logo.

    urgh, was actually referring to the jason mask and crossed machetes that have now rotated to another image.


  5. Yeah, I figured. Had to replace one of the others, some little liberal whiner was complaining about one of the photos, said he was going to rat me out. I’ll probably make it more static in a couple days for Halloween, or replace a few with Halloween ones.

    Afterwards, I will keep the image without the hockey mask.
