It is clear that many sensible voices in the Republican Party like Bob Corker are starting to emerge. Could it be that they are laying the case, not for a Trump impeachment but an outright removal via the 25th Amendment?

This is not the first time we've explored this.

Much of these articles were early speculations from pundits. But now respected and serious politicians are starting to chime in. Bob Coker and many other prominent Republicans have been sounding the alarm. And Corker's most recent Twitter feud with Trump show the fear of bucking Trump is growing. It seems they are trying to lay the groundwork to use the 25th Amendment Section 4.

RawStory reported on a CNN segment that makes the point.

The New York Times interview quotes Corker saying that he doesn't know why Trump continues to tweet out things that aren't true. "You know he does it, everyone knows he does it, but he does it," Corker said.

CNN host Michael Smerconish explained that his training as an attorney leads him to believe that's a comment about the president's ability to do his job effectively.

"The lawyer in me hears something different. I'm thinking of the 25th Amendment, Section 4, which speaks to a president who is unable to discharge the powers of duties of his office," Smerconish said. "Let's just reflect on some of the word choices that senator made. Post-Charlottesville, he was questioning the stability of the president. Now he's using the word 'reckless, chaos.' Now he is saying 'he concerns me.' I think he's planting seeds for questioning the fitness, the mental fitness of the president pursuant to the 25th Amendment to continue with his responsibilities."

There are "sensible voices in the Republican party." What a hoot! And Gas Fracking is Green technology. Soldiers in never ending imperial wars should be praised and honored. "Respected" politicians earn their pay by having Tweet battles with one another.


What's a democracy?

It would be nice to not have to wake up every morning wondering what the Trumpster Fire in Chief has done to frak us up.

However, we should remember that when he goes, we have Pence. And if Pence goes down... there's Paul Ryan, waiting in the wings.

We'll have traded crazy-bad for just plain bad.
