Well, I'm just happy any time congress isn't thinking up some way to infringe the Bill of Rights or take more of my money. I get more entertainment value out of Clinton's drawers getting dragged through congress and the nation via c-span than just about anything the government does outside of the space program and bombing Saddam. Y'know, when congress shut down the government a couple years ago for a week, I didn't notice a thing, despite all the hooting and hollering on the news. If the impeachment can shut down the government for a whole year I'll be real happy....
