Actually, Fromkin writes “war” where I have substituted a contemporary reality.  But the same “obvious and commonsense conclusion” applies.

President Obama, to his shame, said that there wasn’t  “even a smidgeon of corrpution” at the IRS.  Quite right.  There is a boatload, and it stinks to heaven. Pace the David Brookses and Bob Godlattes of the world, talk of impeachment — beginning, perhaps, but only beginning, with John  Koskinen, the smarmy Democratic apparatchik who is head of the IRS — occupies a place not in “cloud-cuckoo land” but here in the terra firma of responsible political discourse.  Anyone who cares about the future of the country — which is not the same thing as the results of the next election — should remember and act on this truth early and often.
