Only in an Orwellian universe would a congressman who proudly belongs to the Problem Solvers Caucus and has called for greater civility in Congress account for his colleague’s call for impeachment as the result of “somebody dropping him on his head.” 

U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker may certainly disagree with Rep. Justin Amash’s conclusion, but he’s taking a page from his master’s playbook when he reduces Amash’s position to ridicule.

I’ve long since given up the hope that our congressional district would be represented by someone who breaks from party orthodoxy. But is it asking so much to be represented by someone who can formulate an argument that doesn’t cast an opponent as brain-damaged?

What a continual embarrassment it is to be represented nationally so poorly.
