Impeach Bybee

So The New York Times editorial board believes Jay S. Bybee, former torture memo author and currently a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judge, should be impeached. A number of famous "bloggers" are voicing their support for the initiative, but I doubt its efficacy.

Because the U.S. Constitution says federal judges "shall hold their Offices during good Behavior," so as long as Judge Bybee hasn't authored any torture memos since March 21, 2003, he should be cool.

Presidents, on the other hand, may be impeached for teabagging.
