Super, heroes

“Just one more thing. …”
Photo hijacked from the Internet. So impeach me already.

So this is impeachment.

With just two counts at the moment — basically, being a dick and punking Congress — it feels a lot like a cop catching one of the FBI’s Most Wanted driving a stolen Brinks truck full of automatic weapons, fentanyl, and dead teenagers, and then warning the guy about a busted taillight and waving him on before getting back to his donut.

I’m not sure this is gonna be must-see TV for a viewing audience grown fat on “Watchmen,” “Avengers: Endgame” and “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” It’s more like Mickey Mouse.

And anyway, seriously, fuck a bunch of Batman. I think a lot of us would settle for Columbo right about now.

    is his what they mean by ‘political theatre’?

    I don’t get the strategy. They want quick and dirty, get it over, move on to the election. But that means your going with political calculus and not merely honoring your obligation to the constitution, which they also claim to be doing.

    I say screw it, schedule a one day hearing per week on a different impeachable offense, from now until November. Mueller gave you ten, he’s a 3x unindicted co-conspirator via Cohen, and once you dig into his written responses to mueller, you got at least a dozen perjuries . So you schedule a hearing the week, but make sure you immediately following up with something about actual legislation for the people, so it shows that you can chew gum and walk at the same time.

    Drip drip drip … his base will get fired up for a month or two, but they can’t sustain that for another 11 months.
    And then he goes down in history as a 32 time impeached president.

      Yeh, this feels strictly pro forma. “We gotta, so we gotta.”

      I like the drip, drip, drip, myself. Keep the faucet on. Not full blast, but a trickle; erosion by the milligram.

      Can’t you just hear it in the national sink?

      Bloink … blurp … bloink.

      Nobody can focus on a Marvel movie with that shit going on.

      Blerk … bloink … blopp.

      And forget sleeping.

      Bwink … blerk … bloink.

      It will make everyone crazy. And we’ve got it coming.

        I’ll go with Nonna Pelosi on this one. The folks who need convincing are the simpletons who voted for Don the Con, so throwing the entire book at him will just confuse and bore them. Nobody’s been impeached in the limited-attention span, social media era until now so as much as we (who already knew he was a crook and con man long ago) would like to see the slow drip drive Donnie off the deep end, the result is gonna be the same either way: Moscow Mitch will let him slide.
        Then the Democrats can campaign against the guy who was impeached. He has been impeached and when Moscow Mitch lets him off the hook that will not change. They can start running ads against the “Impeached Donald Trump” to drive home the message that he’s Orange Nixon sooner rather than later. Then they need a candidate who can get out the voters, one who can do more than just get the old (or young) folks involved. Who that is IS the big, big question, one I got no answer to.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        I got no answer to The Big Question either. It feels like every other kind of shopping these days.

        “No, I don’t want all that bullshit, the bells and whistles, the doodads, whizbangs and comosellamas. I just want something that fucking works!

    How about Hercule?

    I like the death by a thousand cuts version. Drag this out a little at a time. Its a foregone conclusion that the Senate will not convict. So drag it out and maximize the damage.
