Why Democrats Are Encouraging Impeachment Talk

John Avlon: "Beyond the hysterics that fundraising emails use to scare donors into opening their wallets, the whole incident provides an example of the feedback loop of modern politics - one side's extremes quickly becomes a fundraising call to arms for the other. Nobody wins but the professional partisans get to pocket cash by fanning the flames."

"Democrats are trying to call Republicans' bluff - there's nothing they'd love more than an election-eve example of the Stockholm syndrome that seems to afflict the GOP leadership. Last time, Ted Cruz & Co convinced their party to shutdown the government without a plan past freefall and it all ended predictably. Democrats want to be thrown in that brier patch - it might be their best chance to win the midterms."
