2. Funny you should mention Bob Barr...

I came across this article today:

Bob Barr to defend DragonCon founder in molestation case
by The Gwinnett Daily Post

LAWRENCEVILLE -- DragonCon co-founder Ed Kramer, now back in Gwinnett to face decade-old child molestation charges, will have a familiar face representing him.

Bob Barr -- the longtime U.S. Representative and 2008 Libertarian candidate for president -- is now the defense attorney for Kramer, who founded what's become one of the nation's largest sci-fi conventions before being arrested on molestation charges in 2000.

Kramer, accused of having sexual contact with three teenage boys, was re-booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center on Saturday after being extradited from Connecticut, where he violated conditions of his bond. Barr was out of the country and was unavailable for comment, but an administrative assistant confirmed that he was now representing Kramer.

To answer your question; I don't think the Starr/Barr replacements have arisen yet. Issa is a possibility.

5. Ah Issa would have been a good choice

Didn't think about him (or at least I try not to). See my answer down thread, it may give you a good laugh.

4. I'll nominate John Yoo and Ron Paul

They are like two peas in a pod and crazier than a loon.

6. The new "Bob Barr" is Darrell Issa but far worse than BB. At least BB had the decency to turn over

a new leaf. He left Washington and became a lawyer for the ACLU. At least on this issue, he became one of the good guys.

I don't know who the knew "Ken Starr" is, but I shudder to find out.

7. I love the "impeachment" posts. So fanciful

Here's something you can take to the bank. No one is starting impeachment proceedings against President Obama.

9. Jeez, Starr And Barr Look Like Moderates, Compared To Today's Bunch.


I never dreamed I'd be saying that, but it's the truth.

10. Paul Clement.

But I think he'll keep his powder dry because I ultimately think he wants to become a Supreme Court justice in the next GOP administration.

11. He's going to be waiting a LONG time.

Demographics have pretty much assured no repuke presidencies for the foreseeable future.

14. Noone really compares. Besides, current day Repubs already have said they think Obama's package

is too big. So I don't think they want to bring that up again.

Bengazhi is now a dead issue after SOS Clinton's statements to the House and Senate. I don't think there is really much they can do to initiate impeachment charges on anything else.
