Meet your new King of Rational Thought. His name is Rep. Michael Burgess, and he moonlights as an obstetrician. He's also smack dab in the glorious midst of his fifth term as a Republican legislator from the great nation of Texas. Much like his Republican forefathers in the House way back in 1998, he's come up with a brilliant idea to deal with this pesky Demmy-crat president: IMPEACH!
Obviously, he voiced this sentiment at a Tea Party party or rally or corn-husking bee or whatever it is those people do when they hang out as a group…
Burgess spoke… in response to an attendee's suggestion that the GOP-controlled House use impeachment to stop Obama from "pushing his agenda."
"It needs to happen, and I agree with you it would tie things up," Burgess responded, the paper said. "No question about that."
When the [Fort Worth] Star-Telegram's reporter asked Burgess about the comment, he said the House needs to do what it can to stop the president. "We need to tie things up," Burgess said. "The longer we allow the damage to continue unchecked, the worse things are going to be for us."
This man — who gets paid to look into the vaginas of ladies and pull out our future (i.e., the children) — has pulled out something even more amazing: The solution to all our problems. Yes, let's impeach our president for "pushing his agenda," since he is the first president to ever push an agenda or to even have an agenda.
He and Rep. Steve King (R-I.A.) and Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) can start an impeachment club with other Tea Party friends. It can meet right after their morning liberty and truth knitting club and right before their afternoon pray away the gay luncheon. And once they achieve their goal, everyone will be rich and have so many guns and babies, hooray!
