Republicans for the Impeachment of Bush?

I blogged earlier on the impending civil war in the GOP as it races to distance itself from the Bush legacy. With the primaries still ahead of them members of Congress are desperate to avoid angering their base, they are also up for election. Once those primaries are over there is a shift in the calculus of self interest that drives most politicians but especialy those that preach self-interest as ultimate good. Time to shout 'man overboard' then throw the liabilty off the ship.

Noonan has undoubtedly been sent to test out the waters, that is the role of pundits in the Republican ecosphere. The party will rebrand itself and attempt to stick the blame for the Bush years on the Democrats.
