Remember he got only 1 in the House (plus 1 voting Present.)

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins “Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants “U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.

so what?

why would it be unfortunate if everybody votes to impeach him upon being convinced of his guilt?

Sorry, but, conviction of a crime is not necessary for impeachment, and removal from office.

Ask Evan Mecham (well, he's dead now), who was not convicted of any of the bogus charges brought against him (he won in court), but who was impeached and removed from office.

Remember he got only 1 in the House (plus 1 voting Present.)

The present votes and those not voting are important. In IL it requires 2/3 of the 59 members, which is 40 Senators. Some combination of no, present, and not voting that equals 20 would keep him in office. Personally, I think that's a hard number to reach.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.
