article imageOp-Ed: Bill Maher ridicules Sarah Palin on call for Obama's impeachment

By John Presta     Jul 13, 2014 in Politics
Los Angeles - Sarah Palin has been busy of late, struggling to regain relevancy, even among her own crowd of supporters. Palin is calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama, and threatens withholding of support for any Republican not going along with her.
Sarah Palin's latest circus act of calling for the impeachment of Obama is only serving to set herself as a butt of jokes. Palin penned a FoxNews.com, inviting reactions ranging from ridicule to indifference, from the left, the center and even the right. The most poignant criticism of Palin this past week came during "HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher" on Friday. Maher blasted away at Palin.
Maher said on Friday, "Not to be outdone, Sarah Palin announced this week on her website that she is calling for Obama's impeachment. The border stuff we were just talking about was the 'last straw' for her. Oceans cannot protect us from Mexico any longer."
"She is so serious about this and says any Republicans that does not support impeachment, will not get her support. So that must make potty trained Republicans very upset," added Maher.
"We have a copy of the Articles of Impeachment," said Maher and satirized Palin. Starting by ridiculing her intelligence, Maher started with "To Which it May Concern," the Articles of Impeachment started with "Here ye, here ye, Thus we resolve to the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama also."
Article 1: "For allowing children to illegally to cross our borders from countries like Honduras, Guatemala and El Segundo,
Article 2: For covering up the attack on our embassy in Ben Gazzara,
Article 3: Is seen as one who thinks we're stupid. Used the missing airliner to distract us from...hey, remember that missing airliner?
Article 4: Like I have to tell you.
Article 5: Some shit I heard on the radio.
Article 6: For killing Nicole Brown Simpson
Article 7: Used to buy a bag of underwear at Target and the underwear had tags. Now the tag is printed right on the underwear.
Article 8: A Sad face.
Article 9-11: Eggs, Butter, Lip balm.
United States Attorney General Eric Holder also weighed in on the Sarah Palin impeachment call. Asked about Palin's call last week to impeach President Obama, Holder told ABC's This Week that "she wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate (in 2008). She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why."
The only man in country that can actually initiate impeachment proceedings, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), says "no" to impeachment.
"We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment," Goodlatte said during an interview on on ABC's This Week. "The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the president of the United States. He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that."
"On the other hand, we do believe that the president is not enforcing the law. And there's a wide array of issues, not just immigration, where we believe that," Goodlatte continued. "And that's why the speaker, and many of us in the Congress, are getting ready to take legal action to stand up for the people's right for their elected representatives to be the part of our government that passes laws — not a president with his pen and his cell phone."
No impeachment, but a lawsuit about Obamacare is in the cards. Apparently Goodlatte didn't hear Palin tell Fox News, “You don’t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight and there’s no room for lawyers on our front lines.”
Let's hope that gunfight is a metaphor for impeachment.
