Yesterday, Dennis Kucinich told Sean Hannity that striking Syria without prior Congressional authorization would be an impeachable offense. Sean’s eyes lit up and his voice began to drip honey. President Obama’s GOP critics have wanted to impeach him for years and recently began vocally looking for an excuse. Syria could be that excuse. The next eighteen months could become a partisan wrangle in which nothing else is done. The 2014 elections could be contested mainly over maintaining a GOP House with sufficient votes to impeach and a GOP Senate with sufficient votes to convict, a first in American history. If that happens, Joe Biden would become President, and he would pick someone to become Vice President until January, 2017. If he chose Hillary, would the Senate vote to confirm her or would they demand that she pledge not to be a candidate in 2016?
Tonight’s debate was a clear win for the President, and he won on substance. Mitt won the first debate on style. So the score is now one and one for each man. The third debate will be the tie breaker and it will be on foreign affairs. Mitt has no foreign policy experience so Barack should be the clear winner there on both substance and style.

Martha Raddatz, who moderated the debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, is being criticized by the Right for insisting on answers to tough questions. But that is what the media are supposed to do and that is why the media have a special place in our Constitution. The Right have browbeaten the media in recent years, falsely accusing the “lamestream media” of a liberal bias. The GOP have become so accustomed to the browbeaten media and the propaganda of FOX News, unfair and unbalanced, that they have forgotten how to respond to a professional reporter doing her job.

Last evening’s debate between Vice President Biden and Paul Ryan was fascinating to watch. I could not take my eyes off of Paul Ryan’s nose as it grew longer and longer minute by minute. By the end of the debate, his nose was long enough to pose a threat to the eyes of Joe Biden, Martha Raddatz and the people seated in the first row of the audience. Fortunately no one was injured.
In tonight’s debate, Paul Ryan said that Mitt Romney is uniquely qualified to be president. In that, he was 50% correct. Mitt is unique(ly), but he is NOT qualified to be president.
