Takoma Park Mayor Kathy Porter Talks Impeachment on MSNBC with Tucker Carlson.


Carlson is worried that our resolution is somehow crossing the line between local and federal issues. You remember that passage in the Constitution about “separation of local and federal government,” right??

Tucker: Some years ago, when Takoma Park declared itself a nuclear free zone, there was some concern that Takoma Park was going to create an army or a militia or something and, kind of, strike out on its own. Is that—in the cards?

Mayor Porter. [pause] No.

Watch Video. Read MSNBC intro.

    Tell mayor Porter that i admire her, and all you citizens of Takoma Park. i think most folks are feeling the same way, but they are not brave enough to stand up for our rights. you are a town of patriots and our founding fathers would be proud.

    Mayor Porter completely turned the tables on Carlson, responding to his foolery with calm, measured, sensible answers. She deserves our thanks for representing us so excellently in that interview; we’re fortunate to have her as mayor.

    TIme wouldn’t have permitted every one of Carlson’s mistakes to be rebutted — particularly when he simply repeats them and says he’s right. I’m thinking of “partisan,” which Mayor Porter rightly denied, only for Carlson to repeat, “it’s partisan because… it is partisan, obviously…”

    No, it’s not. Any voting on this may well turn out to follow partisan lines, but impeachment itself is not partisan, it’s constitutional — it’s a mechanism mentioned over and over again in our Constitution. The word is there for a reason, and that reason isn’t to benefit Democrats, Republicans, Greens, or Libertarians — it’s to benefit the country. If Pelosi were to succeed to the presidency because of Cheney’s and Bush’s convictions, that would not be partisan either, but constitutional.

    Incidentally, Mayor Porter’s e-mail address can be found on the City Council web site — click on her picture, she’s the one on the far left. I’ve just sent her an e-mail.
