I know there's a lot of people on Daily Kos who do not like President Obama one damn bit. That's okay. You're criticizing the coach. You can do that.

But when, on Daily Kos, you call for the impeachment of President Barack Obama on Constitutional grounds,

You're running toward the wrong fucking end zone.

You're heading toward the mound fully intent on punching your own pitcher.

You're creating an intentional turnover.

You're shaving points.

And just so y'all know this is really me,

You're blowing the opposing quarterback during half time.

Speaking of blowing, Bill Clinton could not have been impeached for lying about a blow job had a bunch of Democrats not crossed over to the other side. You can criticize Democrats. You can criticize their strategy and you SHOULD. But if you're calling for Barack Obama's impeachment, now, right now, on the basis of high crimes and misdemeanors, HERE on Daily Kos, you're on the wrong team.

I should have to prove that and I will. These folks have also called for President Obama's impeachment:

Jason Chaffetz (R-UT

James Inhofe (R-Okla.)

Michele Bachmann (R-Batshit)

Steve King (R-Iowa)

Steve Stockman (R-NRA)

Trey Radel (R-NRA)

Louie Gohmert (R-NRA-Batshit-Batshit-Retarded)

Edwin Meese (R-Former Attorney General)

Larry Pratt (Gun Owners of America)

Dick Morris (HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!1!)

Sean Hannity

Newt Gingrich

Grover Norquist

Neil Cavuto

Herman Cain

I could go on and on and on and on, and there would not be a single "D" on that list unless it meant "Daily Kos". There has to be such a thing within this community as going too fucking far. Conspiracy theories, for instance, are going too fucking far. I think calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama is no different.

Not going to participate in the comments. Knock yourself out.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
