Pat Cunningham offers an unabashedly liberal perspective on national politics. A note of caution: The language gets a little salty on some of the sites to which this blog links. So, don't say you weren't warned. By the way, this blog's name is inspired by the Will Rogers quote, \x34All politics is applesauce.\x34 In 41 years as a print and broadcast journalist, most of those years with the Rockford (Ill.) Register Star, Pat has covered national politics under eight American presidents. He's attended 10 national political conventions, Republican and Democratic alike, and has interviewed countless prominent political players, including Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush.

Some of the crazier elements on the far right of the Republican Party began calling for the impeachment of President Obama at the very moment he first took the oath of office in 2009.

Of course, the GOP establishment was more than happy to harness this passionate streak of disdain for the new president, even if the roots were grounded in racism.

But now party leaders suddenly have become a little nervous about all the impeachment rhetoric among the kooks. Perhaps they’ve seen a recent poll showing that Americans overwhelmingly oppose the idea of impeaching Obama (see HERE).

Democratic leaders doubtless have seen those poll numbers and are eagerly exploiting them with fundraising appeals that emphasize the right-wing push for impeachment (see HERE).

And now radio blabber Rush Limbaugh is warning his listeners that all this talk of impeachment is an invention by liberals and their pals in their media to discredit Republicans and thereby raise more money (see HERE).
