Honduras Update: Not A Coup

Via Jacob, here's a link to someone who actually bothered to read Honduras' constitution. His conclusion - the Supreme Court, and not Congress, has the power to impeach the President. What's more, the Constitution orders that anyone who tries to amend the Constitution to expand their own time in office be thrown out and kept out for ten years. Looks like Zelaya doesn't have a leg to stand on here, legally. Obama and Costa Rica President Oscar Arias, who is taking the lead in diplomacy here, might want to recognize this.

No, definitely more of a station wagon.

Oh wait, you said "coup". Ignore me.

Given that Obama has no regard for the US Constitution, it's doubtful he'd care about the constitutions of other countries.
