Article Two, Section Four of the Constitution: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High crimes and misdemeanors.

Well, two congressmen have jumped into the stupid pool with their filing of "articles of impeachment." A quick look at the sentence above completely undercuts any grounds for their action. This Constitution is such a pesky document. Just when you have a great point, we find that it is not supported Constitutionally. Unfortunately, too many of our public "servants" are really self "servants" or party "servants."

And, by the way, "impeachment" means indictment, not conviction. As we have learned from history, the threat of impeachment is often a double edged sword, cutting the one who wields it as badly as the one being attacked. (Pun alert) Very often the most frequent uses of this weapon are conducted by political hacks. (You were warned.)

Our "whack-a-mole" political landscape is both embarrassing and demeaning to our country. Rumors pop up and as soon as one is whacked, another appears in its place. Imagine how impressed the North Korean despot is with our level of sophisticated rhetoric. No wonder he thinks he can get away with outrageous activities like firing an ICBM into the ocean. He is "testing" both his hardware and our intelligence. Will we be too occupied with hacked emails and clandestine meetings to pay attention?

Can we impeach Congressmen for imbecility?
