*The clerk at my local post office was absolutely apoplectic at the site of the motley group of young African-American political canvassers that had set up their literature table on the sidewalk in front of her station. She raged loudly to me that she would call the police and have them carted away.

The trigger for her rage was the big emblazoned photo on the top and side of their table with a picture of President Obama captioned “Impeach Him Now!”
