Welcome to shooting watermelons in the back yard [part 2].
Let the subpoenas begin. Expect a wave of investigations targeting the Obama White House. Benjamin Sarlin looks at the likely probes, from the BP spill to the Sestak deal.
One of the biggest consequences of the 1994 Republican Revolution was the wave of investigations the new GOP majority carried out against the White House, culminating in President Clinton's impeachment. Now that the 2010 midterm elections are over, many Democrats and progressive commentators are concerned the same fate will befall President Obama, given the intensity of conservative loathing for his administration.
Oh joy! I'm on pins and needles. I cannot wait for the non-stop, televised hearings investigating how Obama's Muslim, Kenyan parents managed to put a phony advertisement in a Honolulu newspaper in 1961 announcing his birth in a local hospital, then get a white family from Kansas (including a WWII vet) to raise him as their own -- all with the evil, planned foresight of one day ensuring he was elected President of the United States with the sole purpose of imposing Sharia law on all Americans. The excitement of such a pending spectacle is nothing short of titillating.
