MINOT, N.D. — There is a particular class of ideologue who views anything the other side tries to do as inherently illegitimate and probably illegal.
This is why Democrats these days throw around the word “impeachment” at the drop of a hat.
The president and Republican Senate majority might exercise their clearly defined constitutional powers to replace an iconic left-wing jurist with someone more conservative, on a timeline that, while not typical of Supreme Court appointments, isn’t all that unusual either?
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi thinks that might be cause for another impeachment.
Because the other side governing is, uh, illegal or something.
I was thinking of this insipid and obnoxious strain of partisanship when I watched a recent “60 Minutes” story (click to watch) focusing on a North Dakota company that has received some big contracts to build portions of a wall along our southern border with Mexico.
Did we learn anything about the situation we didn’t already know?
