I swear, all but one of our GOP members in the State House is an idiot.  The one that isn't is mine, and even he's had enough and isn't running for reelection.

Metcalfe is the 3rd biggest asshole in PA. He represents God, guns, thoughts, and prayers. His constituents are whacked, thoroughly brainwashed, and generally not very sharp,

So they are leaning on Trumps incompetence in this crisis to shift blame to states and recall democratic governors in order to push constitutional amendments.

Great.  All the more years of Trump.

I see it clearer than i have seen my own existence.

The angle in red states that have blue dems is to attack mercilessly on COVID but for economic reasons, not death. The death is in the cities, the yokels will allow economy to resonate. They will say things like "common sense says you should have done x". Holy fark this could work.

These pieces of garbage are gonna play the odds, and crap, they might do it.

Their story is Lawmakers want to impeach Wolf.

But they only mention Representative Daryl Metcalfe's memo.

Surely they could have gotten reactions from other representatives.

It actually wouldn't shock me if he is closeted.

Usually someone who's that insistent that he's heterosexual usually isn't.

It's funny you say that because this article was sourced from the Sinclair station in Harrisburg (CBS 21).

None of the Pittsburgh stations are covering this (KDKA, WTAE, WPXI).

Good. Go for it Republicans, and set a precedent for holding governors accountable for their actions during the pandemic.

I'm sure it will work out great for the governors of red states, like GA Gov Kemp who reopened too soon and now has positive covid19 voters as blood on his hands.

Let's get this party started!

Who did not see this coming? I have a great idea. From now on anybody that brings about articles of impeachment that are not successful gets impeached themselves. In fact f*** that, executed. This is going to be the big go-to tool from now on. Every time somebody sneezes, they're going to try impeachment. Our government is being run by a bunch of goddamn toddlers

To be fair, Clinton did get a hummer from an intern in the oval office, then he lied about it. He was impeached for lying about it, but not convicted. It was kind of a big deal when it happened ... even Mrs. Clinton chimed in, calling it, "a vast right-wing conspiracy." Good times, good times.

Metcalfe's timing is off as usual.  37 counties here are partly reopened (including the one Metcalfe represents) and twelve more will be partly reopening next week.  He may get a little support from a few disgruntled Republicans in places like Lebanon, Lancaster, and Dauphin counties, but that's about it.

The PA Supreme Court, just a couple of weeks back, just confirmed that Wolf's orders were Constitutional.  The US Supreme Court refused to even take the case up (with Alito making the call.)  The only citation I have is the name of the case, but the decision is available by looking for it on your favorite search engine - Friends of Danny Devito v. Wolf (and no, it's not the actor.)

It's going to be rather difficult to secure a conviction, when both the State and Federal Supreme Court have already ruled that what you did was 100% legal.
