Re: Impeaching Obama

Dan: I thought about that. I even started to write up some caveats for just such an eventuality. Like, say, if a quarter of Democrats vote to impeach too, or if Chait himself agrees that impeachment is warranted.

But I figured those kinds of riders might sound weaselly. And, if I lost the bet but Obama were impeached for just cause, losing 500 bucks to charity would be a small price to pay for justice. So I’ll leave it as it is. My 500 smackers against Chait’s that under no circumstances will Obama be successfully impeached by the House. Pure, simple, clean — like an Amish bachelor party.
