Sweethearts

I can’t pretend I’m not enjoying this. Don’t ask me to explain why, but watching the Democrats faceplanting has been a guilty pleasure of mine for some years now.

The Democrats have built a stellar reputation on snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, and this week’s impeachment circus didn’t disappoint. Caught Trump dead to rights instigating mob violence and an attempted putsch, and the Senate GOP told the Democrats to pound sand as per usual, leaving the Democrats once again stomping their little feet, blustering and whining like Joe Besser.

Well, I just hope the Dems have finally gotten this shit out of their system. Maybe now that this shitshow is over, they can get to work getting us some decent COVID relief… and maybe some friggin’ healthcare…?

Impeachment II: The Reheated

“We have the unusual circumstance where on the very first day of the trial, when those managers walk on the floor of the Senate, there will already be over 100 witnesses present”

—Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), 02.08.2021

Well, hot damn diggety; nothing fills me with confidence quite like the poetic, sage pronouncements of Mr. Russiagate, himself. Meanwhile, Jamie Raskin is cementing his role as the Tired-Ass Cliché User In-Chief:

“…Donald Trump surrendered his role as commander in chief and became inciter in chief.”

This hot mess isn’t exactly going to be last night’s lasange, that’s for goddamn sure — and those of you who love leftover lasagne like I do know what I’m talking about, and I’m the goddamn Leftover Lasagne Lover In-Chief.

Ceci n’est pas une banane

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, in a Los Angeles Times op-ed this week, gave us one of the most succinct and elegant analyses of the ongoing impeachment circus I’ve seen so far:

The Democrats have just voted to hand Trump horrific surveillance powers by reauthorizing the Patriot Act, and given him a $738bn war budget (including his Space Force), but he’s still a Russian stooge and a threat to Democracy™, so let’s impeach his ass anyway.

Christ, who the hell are they kidding?
