Thirteen years ago, Mort Sahl said in an interview that the Republican Party has a secret strategy. An ace up their sleeve: They always run against Democrats.

 

How could the Democrats – after all this time, after all their deliberations and backroom consultations – come up with two articles of impeachment that don’t mention any high crimes and misdemeanors??? What about Bribery? What about Treason ?????

I don’t get it.

How ’bout these?

POTUS conspired with foreign nation(s) to influence U.S. election for personal interests, using bribery and government monies to extort personal favors

POTUS obstructed investigation into above criminal activities, and has shown pattern of repeated obstructions of Justice Dept investigations

POTUS abused Congress in obstructing Congressional investigations and defying subpaenas

 

OK On with the day. Here’s Fighting A Losing Battle But Having A Lot of Fun Trying to Win, Brownie McGee’s anthemic blues standard. Yes campers, we will just keep on fighting for democracy and freedom in this country.

The Democrats’ lackluster performance in the Judicial Committee and their inability to stop the Republicans from upstaging the hearings with their distractions and conspiracy stuff was sad to watch. The Republicans back home hear an alternate version of what happened anyway. It’s all pretty sad to see that they can almost pull it off. The impeachment process will be a strict Party vote. And that will be that. Mort Sahl had it right.

No matter. More information will eventually come to light. Eventually.

I still think the Democrats need to decide how they want to proceed with this thing.

As the noted political scholar Yogi Berra, once said: “It ain’t over, til’ it’s over”.
