A follow-up to The I-Word is the New N-Word, inspired by Exclusive—Sarah Palin: ‘It’s Time to Impeach’ President Obama (Sarah Palin, Breitbart.com 7/08/14), Boehner’s ‘political stunt’ will lead to Obama’s impeachment (Jonathan Capehart, WashingtonPost.com 7/16/14), The Conservative War Over Impeachment (Media Matters 7/28/14), and Obama aide says impeachment threat taken seriously (AP via WashingtonPost.com 7/25/14).
“President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights. It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment. The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.” – Sarah Palin
Not long ago, the I-word was taboo,
Now, it’s just one of many crazy things right-wingers want to do.
Lately, talk of impeachment is all the rage,
And a convenient way for right-wingers to show rage.
It and the N-word have a similar meaning:
Our first black President’s deliberate demeaning.
Repubs can’t say the N-word, at least not in the public eye,
So they need another way, Obama’s dignity to deny.
Hence the I-word, which is the right wing’s new way
To take this President’s legitimacy away.
Boehner thinks his lawsuit will satisfy the far right,
And then everything will work out alright.
He thinks Republicans learned their lesson impeaching Clinton.
(You know what they say: “Twice shy, once bitten.”)
“They can’t be crazy enough to do it again–
They’d surely lose in 2016 then!”
But who knows if they win the Senate in 2014–
Especially if commanded to impeach by the Red Queen.
Voters have to make those right-wingers pay
When they things like this do and say.
Let’s not let them our President discredit:
Vote in November, and make them sorry they said it!
