Actually, I've pondered that and I may have to do it, but I'm loathe to as a number of my commentors are not Mee.nuvians.

At what point does incompetence become an impeachable offence?

Sure, somewhere out there, there have been verified cases of dogs having eaten homework. But most of the time when it is used as an excuse, the homework was not in fact eaten by the dog... and some of the times when it was, it was first put in the dog bowl after having been rubbed with bacon and drenched in gravy.
It's an excuse offered where the one offering the excuse doesn't actually care if they are believed or not. And, really, why should Obama care? The Senate wouldn't vote to impeach him if he went into the chamber and shot a Senator.

All the payroll data for this location (for a couple hundred employees) was handled by one computer. So, the IT "department" (who was one person) was tasked with finding a way to back it up.
The backup consisted of copying the C:\ drive data to the D:\ drive.
Not terribly smart, since anything that wrecks the whole machine takes out both drives, right?
Even less smart when the C:\ drive finally crashed, and at that point our alleged IT professional realized that the D:\ drive was another partition on the same physical HDD.
Said IT person was somehow not fired for gross incompetence.

Of course, that last bit applies outside of government work, too...but if you're in tight with the bureaucracy, you'll (usually) be protected. Just don't quit. Make them fire you.
Wait...getting off track here.

They really need to stop buying Western Digital hard drives.
