Please, right-wingers -- demonstrate how in sync you are with the priorities of the general public at this fraught moment in American history by prioritizing one burning issue: impeaching President Obama because someone in his office may have offered a job to a guy to keep him out of a Senate race, an offer the guy turned down. Yup, that's what America wants done right now. Not job creation. Not cleaning up the Gulf. Nothing like that. America wants another constitutional crisis!

Please, righties -- demand that your candidates pledge to make this the #1 issue Congress takes up in 2011. Insist you won't vote for or donate to any candidate who doesn't take the pledge. This is what America's clamoring for -- a party that will follow the lead of Dick Morris:

MORRIS: ... Joe Sestak is either lying or the White House committed a crime. You can't have it both ways. And going to ultimately have to tell us what job, when, and with who, and the person that offered will have to be asked, "Did anyone authorize that?" Obviously, obviously, the offer of a significant job at the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared by Rahm Emanuel. And equally obviously, Rahm Emanuel, for a Cabinet-level job, probably secretary of the Navy, would have had to clear that with the president. That is a high crime and misdemeanor.

HANNITY: That would be, in other words, an impeachable offense.

MORRIS: Absolutely....

Ignore the fact that even the Washington Post editorial board can't figure out if what's being alleged would be illegal. Disregard the fact that the most widely discussed allegation -- the Navy secretary job offer mentioned by Morris -- appears to be chronologically impossible. Just do it! Just make this the center of your fall campaign! Give the public a real sense of what they're in for if they vote for you!
