If its kudos to the Illinois legislature for impeaching a sitting Governor for gross incompetence if not illegal governance, its raspberries to the US Congress for not impeaching the outgoing President for the same transgressions on a national rather than a statewide canvas.

Maybe the disparity between the wise corrective action of the state versus the shameful indulgence of the national legislative body is that unlike the former, the latter was involved in an eight year long policy of support and complicity of the incumbent's "high crimes and misdemeanors". The Senators and Congressmen who signed on to criminal, preemptive war, illegal spying, torture, and dismantling of sane economic regulation would all have to be centipedes to find a moral leg to stand on.
