2006 and the GOP’s attempt to flog impeachment as a base-motivation issue.
There is nothing new under the sun.

PS: I couldn’t begin to tell you whether I was banging that particular drum, or not. I think that I was working under the assumption that the Democrats would use impeachment as a blunt club to make GWB back down from the GWOT, but I can’t remember and I might have very well been well and truly certain that impeachment was on the table. That’s not the important point. The important point is that this is what political fear smells like.
PPS: Geez, read that thing. Domestic eavesdropping, government spending, Iraq, and immigration: the only reason that the economy isn’t on that list is because in March 2006 unemployment and gas prices were noticeably lower than they are right now. Basically, it really is history repeating itself – or, to quote a button I once saw: it’s History screaming “Why won’t you ever LISTEN to what I’m SAYING!” and letting fly with a club.
