Of course it fell on deaf ears, but it was still magnificent and worthy of attention. Rep. John Lewis put the cynical Republican effort to sue the president (in lieu of impeachment) in the perspective it deserves.

Speaking with the authority of one who paid his dues in the Civil Rights Movement, Lewis rebuked Republicans. "This resolution to sue the president just goes a little too far. It is a shame and a disgrace that we are here debating the suing of the president."

This batch of Teabirchers is making history, but not in any way that's good for the country. Someday we're going to look back on their behavior and cringe as a nation at what they did because they hated that black guy in office so much.

Can you help us out?
