No Way to Treat a Judge

The current impeachment of Judge G. Thomas Porteous of New Orleans is reopening old wounds of mine. 

My critique of the Senate process of trying impeachments by committee is up at Huffington Post.  Having been through one of these Senate trials by committee, and having closely watched another, I am convinced they shortchange everyone involved, especially the value that the Framers of the Constitution most wished to preserve: An independent judiciary.
