THE 'I' WORD - For political observers and operatives, a key benefit of blogwatching is the capacity to spot trends days, weeks, or even months in advance. One theme beginning a slow ascent to the upper echelons of the 'sphere is the 'I' word. Although the impeachment of George W. Bush seems to be a mathematical improbability (considering the partisan balance of Congress), bloggers are beginning to raise the issue, here, here, here, here, and here. A newly released Zogby poll suggesting supporters of impeachment outweigh opponents in some parts of the country gives a boost to those calling for Bush's impeachment, and the Downing Street Memos have given ammunition to those who argue that the Bush administration committed the ultimate sin: lying to America about war.Lying about blowjobs = impeach-worthy; lying about war = ???. In effect, the GOP then does not help GW now in that they lowered the bar so much when going after Clinton that the newly-established litmus test does not bode well for the Smirky One. Thanks Newt, Starr, Hyde, etc.!
