Interesting how drastically different the arguments are of each side. Supposedly compelling reasons for impeachment from the dems, while the republicans call witnesses where the questioning goes like, "Is there an impeachable offense?" "No." One side or the other has to be full of it. Or both.

Though the bit about the time left fallacy is true (they can take as little or as much time as they like to do anything) -- remember how the congress shut down entirely for the Clinton impeachment proceedings? A lot of what I'm reading claims this wasn't an impeachment hearing at all, which is kind of weird to me. They gave Kucinich time to make his case, but had already said in advance that there would be no formal impeachment proceedings. So I fee like a lot of WTF.
