A good idea from Captain's Log

Here's an Idea
Thinking over the last eight disastrous years, if you want to put a blame on how W became Der Decider it lands squarely on the shoulders of 5 members of the Supreme Court. They were the ones whose votes ultimately sentenced this country to this nightmare.
Why don't we start a movement to impeach any justice still serving for violating their oath to uphold the constitution? The constitution puts the issue of who votes for the president in the hands of the people and they took that right away from the people. The people should then demand they be replaced. There should be some consequence for them since they caused it all.
I'll add: The U.S. Constitution puts the States in charge of Presidential elections:
Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors, equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States, shall be appointed an elector.
[U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1]
Without looking up the case, my memory is that the Supremes interfered with a state-mandated recount.
Is my memory accurate?
