It’s the second week of August and that means Town Hall Season is just getting underway.
In response to another crazy lady’s request that the president’s “fraudulent” origin be investigated, Representative Blake Farenthold (R-TX) said that the House could impeach the president tomorrow, but the Senate would rain on their parade. And Bill Clinton tragically redefined sex for young people. Or something.
Q: I want to ask you, will you review this and get back to me and let me know if you will support Steve Stockmen of Texas, Ted Yoho of Florida, and Representative Barletta of Pennsylvania? Because they are all supporitng this effort to determine the real truth behind the fraudulent birth certificate of Barack Obama. And this affidavit is from Mike Zullo and it tells you everything about the birth certificate.
FARENTHOLD: I’ll certainly take a look at it and I’m going to tell you [...] I think unfortunately the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue. The original Congress when his eligibility came up should have looked into this but they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it but I’ll take a look at what you’ve got.
Q: I would just say this proves a felony has been committed. Now, who committed it? We have got to decide as a nation; do we allow a president, if he has committed a felony, do we allow him to go unpunished?
FARENTHOLD: Here’s the issue. You tie into a question I get a lot. If everybody’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him? I’ll give you a real frank answer about that. If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted. And the way impeachment works is the House brings articles of impeachment and there’s a trial in the Senate and if he’s convicted in the Senate he’s thrown out of office.
We saw what happened when President Clinton was impeached. I say this half in jest and half seriously because it’s easy to laugh at President Clinton, but as a result of impeaching President Clinton, we’ve redefined what sex is to a lot of our young people and we’ve said it’s okay to lie to Congress. I think that’s been woven into the thread of our society. That failed impeachment attempt actually damaged the country. What message do we send to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for, is found innocent? What do we say then is okay?
I may be mistaken, but I believe the crazy woman confronting Farenthold over the president’s “fraudulent birth certificate” and providing him with documents released by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s birther posse is the same woman who lost her shit in front of Representative Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) last week. And whoever this lady is, she’s going from one town hall to another presenting this affidavit from Mike Zullo, one of Joe Arpaio’s investigators, and demanding another birther investigation. Completely unhinged.
As for what a blowjob in the oval office has to do with damaging society or defining what sex means to “young people,” I couldn’t tell you. I was a teenager when Bill Clinton was impeached and my world wasn’t shattered. In fact, I couldn’t have given less of a shit and thought it was politically-motivated waste of time. My primary question at the time was “who cares?”
And I’m not sure what any of that has to do with the president’s “fraudulent birth certificate” other than to indirectly blame the Democratically-controlled Senate for allowing a secret-Kenyan to remain in power as president.
