"Wash Post Front-Pages Impeachment"

"One could easily get whiplash trying to keep up with the Washington Post's behavior of late. First they hire a serial plagiarist and right-wing hack to provide balance for a serious and credentialed reporter in Dan Froomkin. Then they put the case for impeachment on the front-page.

To be sure, Michael Powell's piece is more descriptive than rhetorical. But, it lays out the case, and it does so without apology. Whether or not impreachment is good politics is discussed, but the merits of impeachment are not strongly questioned in the piece (except, predictably, by Cass Sunstein).

The public groundswell for impeachment is finally acknowledged on the front-page of the Washington Post. That's a move in a positive direction. Perhaps they know it is time to appease the left for a few days."-from the post by my east coast cyber-boss on Booman Tribune.
