Nutty Democrat: House Needs to Disavow Clinton Impeachment or Something

Obviously some Democrats haven't quite got their priorities in order. I actually remember seeing this tool on television during the time of Clinton's impeachment. He clearly hasn't gotten over it yet.
On the day after Republicans reclaimed control of Congress, a Democratic lawmaker said he will introduce a measure that would "disavow" the impeachment of former President Clinton.

Rep. Chaka Fattah (Pa.) said that the resolution is necessary so that Democrats and Republicans can work together in a bipartisan fashion.

"As we enter a period in which bipartisanship will be a major priority for the Congress, it is vital that we disavow the most highly partisan example of the politics of personal destruction in the recent history of this House," Fattah said in a statement.
That would be a shrewd move by the Republicans: Denouncing themselves. Keep dreaming.
The last time they were in power, House Republicans impeached Clinton for allegedly perjuring himself over his supposed affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton, only the second president in history to be impeached, was eventually acquitted at trial in the Senate.

Critics slammed the impeachment as a political move by the GOP, but the impeachment did not torpedo the GOP: they controlled the House for another eight years.
