WASHINGTON - Michigan Congressman Tim Walberg considers sleeping in his Capitol Hill office a luxury.
Walberg, who's running for his old seat, said at a town hall event this week that President Obama could be impeached for not showing his birth certificate.
When extremists are a (vocal) minority, reasonable Republicans and independents come out of the woodwork. And the spoils go to the Democrats, who look comparatively sane.
Although he holds no public office whatsoever, Walberg has been holding health care town hall meetings as he gets ready for a rematch in 2010 against Rep. Schauer.
14 of the 26 non-voting members are lameducks who seem less interested in saving anything except their fat paychecks.
Obama's strong surge in Michigan, combined with McCain's withdrawal and voters' desire to punish the party in power, is tipping the scales in favor of down-ticket Democrats, whose victories will alter the power balance in Washington.
