How is this for layers of irony? Rep. Trent Franks appeared on the G. Gordon Liddy Show complaining about the executive branch not following laws. G. Gordon Liddy. My head is about to explode.
I've said before that Trent Franks will never be confused as one of the great thinkers in Congress, but this doesn't smack of stupidity so much as opportunism.
(I)n the right’s furor over the administration’s announcement that it will not defend the constitutionality of Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) is calling for Obama to be impeached. After the Arizona Republican advocated defunding the Department of Justice if it does not defend Section 3 of DOMA – “I would support that in a moment,” remarked Franks – he went on to say that he would “absolutely” favor impeaching President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder if such a move “could gain collective support”
Remember when the left decided to play nice when they got the majority in Congress and take impeachment off the table? Did anyone seriously think the Republican Party would be as mature?
See what happens when we have to deal with children?
