The crazy in Wingnuttia is running deep.
Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold was conducting a townhall meeting in Luling, Texas two days ago, when a loon asked him if the congressman was ready to support a motion to impeach Barack Obama on the grounds that the President
had committed birther fraud was black. Farenthold responds and in the process does the party of bigots and idiots proud.
UPDATE: Someone wasn’t happy with the negative publicity this video generated. It’s been removed from YouTube. Until I locate a replacement, view it here.
As Steve Benen points out, what is extraordinary here is that the Republican congressman makes no attempt to justify why it is he wishes to impeach President Obama. It appears that when addressing BWBs (baggers, wingers and birthers), simply stating that you want to impeach the President is enough to satisfy that crowd of bloodthirsty crazies. No valid reason for impeachment required. Say that you want to do bad things to Obama and you’re guaranteed that the crowd goes home happy.
The following YouTube comment on Blake Farenthold made from someone who goes by the handle, dayglowgreendoor , made me laugh. Yes, I know that stereotyping is a bad thing, but I laughed anyway. Sorry.

Most worrisome thought concerning the above comment is that I actually understood it all. Hmmm…
