An Indiana principal issued an apology after he used the N-Word during a schoolwide assembly, reported Fox 59 news.

Chuck Weisenbach said he was giving a speech about empathy and used the N-word as an example of a hurtful word that should not be used.

“Among the list of words and phrases was the N-word. I, in no way, used the word in derogatory fashion, but instead to illustrate its ugliness,” Weisenbach said.

All right let's do this: Sleight of hand #1: Dersh says he will analyze why the Framers chose the words they did as "the sole criteria for impeachment."

Nope, nothing in the doc says "SOLE CRITERIA." That's a trick he learned from FedSoc, requiring textual fealty.
