People are noticing the stoopid:
Lawmaker says he plans to file articles of impeachment against Nixon

A Missouri state lawmaker said this weekend he plans to file articles of impeachment against Gov. Jay Nixon over his executive order allowing legally married same-sex couples to file joint tax returns.
On Friday, Attorney General Chris Koster’s office said Nixon’s executive order appears to comply with Missouri law. House Speaker Tim Jones, R-Eureka, had attacked Nixon for the order, but there was little indication Sunday whether he will support Marshall’s impeachment effort.

“…Please, please, please make it so. It is beyond our wildest dreams that the right wingnuts in the General Assembly would be stupid enough to do so…”
We’re probably not gonna have to beg.
