Shelter from the Sturm und Drang

Sen. DeMille (R-Rome) makes a point of order.

Herself was giddy with anticipation this morning, chirping merrily about impeachment.

“It’s trial, not impeachment,” I mumbled as I lurched creakily out of bed. “He’s already been impeached. Twice.”

“Don’t give me any of your semantics,” she retorted, then sang, “Impeachment, impeachment, impeachment,” as she flounced out of the bedroom and back to her office, where she had already begun flogging herself with NPR’s “Morning Edition.”

Frankly, I have been enjoying hearing and reading next to nothing about you-know-who, which of course is exactly what they want. Who are “they,” you ask? You know. Them. Those guys.

I know, I know. He’s got it coming. And I’d like to see him get it, too. I mean, you don’t not prosecute the guy who robs the bank just because he had already fled the scene with the dinero. And chapeau to the House for taking another swing at this fat orange piñata.

But it all feels like one of those cast-of-thousands movies where all the wrong Romans wind up on the pointy end of the sword or quietly bleeding out in a bath somewhere. There are too many senators who think they can be the next Orange Julius Caesar, if only they can ensure that the rabble doesn’t get its togas in a twist.

    Good on Herself. But, have a nice glass of malbec ready for her when the senate says, “Yea, he’s guilty. Acquitted!” Proxied morons.

    If 17 GOP Senators vote “guilty”, I will be quite surprised. I expect the mass of them to cower in fear of “the base”. Then again, up this way I remember what the Party did to Carl Trujillo. But Profiles in Courage is, sadly, out of date reading.

    His name shall be striken from all text and manuscripts. Striken from all obelisks and monuments. Striken from all promotions, advertisements and newsletters. Striken from all public buildings and house of worship(?). But we shall allow his name to reside in those lusty, despicable porno rags and on the walls of filthy bathrooms around the world. He shall be shunned, he shall be banished, he shall be prosecuted and he shall be stripped of all value, trinkets and accolades (were there any?). Now who was it we were talking about again? Orange head? Wig head? I once knew it, but it has been forgotten.

    We should say their names so we don’t forget what they did. But, even though these two had similar behaviors, cheating in a bike race is way different than attempting to become a dictator. Violence always rebounds on oneself, but both of them would have benefited from meeting that one guy gets right in your face and asks if you want a good ass kicking. They are out there, and every bully needs to meet one.

    Who? Armstrong and dumpster.
