I think you have hit the nail on the head.  Their purported efforts to "save
America" from the likes of Clinton is really, underneath that stated purpose,
a desire to knock out somebody who by his actions, appointments, travels, and
statements, threatens *their* sense of what America should look like - (white,
Republican, heterosexual, and Christian), not what America really does look
like.  They really don't give a %@$&* about the citizens or their opinions, I
think.  One of them (I think it was Asa Hutchinson) even had the nerve to
explain that our system isn't really a "pure" democracy, and the Republicans
must provide leadership for the rest of us ignoramuses.  It just goes to show
you how very important it is to be careful who we vote for - and how quickly
tyranny can threaten to take hold when we are looking the other way.  They are
petty and malicious because they don't have a good enough case for
impeachment, so are trying to drive Clinton into the political dirt by
embarrassing the hell out of him, over and over again.  But I think (hope) the
ploy is backfiring on them, and they are growing desperate - another reason
for the maliciousness.  (Too bad Clinton left so much "ammunition" lying
around, though...)
