Words Poorly Used #77 — Impeachment

I saw my first instance of a partisan calling for impeachment (of POTUS) today.  When I was a kid, I thought impeachment was like drawing and quartering, and that only 1 POTUS had actually been thusly dispatched.  Nowadays, we only have to look back four decades, and change.  What about the Nixon Impeachment?  Never happened.  What about the Clinton Impeachment?  It happened, but nothing happened.  The impeachment, vis a vis POTUS, clause is just a pressure valve, for letting off steam, aka very hot air.  If you stand a few feet away, you’ll be fine, just fine.
