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.
