Alan Keyes Wants Michele Bachmann To Lead Impeach Obama Campaign
February 16, 2014

Teh stoopid, it burns. Deeply.

Alan Keyes claims that Rep. Michele Bachmann’s plan to sue President Obama doesn’t go far enough and may actually aid Obama’s “dictatorship.”

Instead, he wants the Tea Party darling -- who last year accused Obama of “committing impeachable offenses” -- to join his Jesus Christ-endorsed campaign to get congressional candidates to pledge to support the impeachment and removal of the president.

Dare I ask these two geniuses what they think rises to an impeachable offense? Keyes, in his call to action, cites multiple instances of executive overreach.

After all, Barack Obama did get placed into office by a singular and some say extra-Constitutional overreach of the Supreme Court, didn't he? Oh wait...

And he manufactured evidence against a sovereign nation who posed no threat to us in order to go to war for some weird ideological notion of remaking the Middle East into more-or-less democratic nations as long as they allowed us to exploit their resources and make his cronies wealthy beyond imagination, amirite? Nope, that's not right...

Well, he did sign all those signing statements saying he was going to ignore the laws that Congress passed...more than ANY other president. Oh, that wasn't him either?

Well, he's been listening in to all our phone calls and has completely expanded the surveillance state. Damn, that's not it either.

Or maybe it's just that he's not a natural-born American.

Or maybe it's that he's a Socialist (cue the dramatic music!)

Or maybe Alan Keyes is just batsh*t crazy and sees a kindred spirit in Michele Bachmann.

Can you help us out?
