The Morning Rant

"This is how we know the impeachment hearings are a clown show:

"1. These hearings are just the culmination of a process that the Democrats started on or about the day Donald Trump was inaugurated. At that time, the whistleblower's leaker's attorney, Mark Zaid, said "the coup has started." And other Democrats have similarly been calling for impeachment from day And this was before Trump had done anything at all, let alone anything impeachable. It's like the crime was pre-determined, and now they're trying to figure out which one it is.

"2. Turns out that the Democrats have been focus-group testing their impeachment strategy. This is probably why the grounds for impeachment have been shifting from "quid pro quo" to obstruction of justice to bribery and extortion. The Democrats are switching the grounds for impeachment in and out so fast, I think I'm going to sue Adam Schiff for whiplash.

"Oh, and Trump should be impeached for undermining long-standing foreign policy put in place by, I don't know, career diplomats. That's a good one.

"4. Impeachment really should be bipartisan thing. But the Democrats haven't been able to peel off one, not one, Republican to stand with them on impeaching Trump. This is actually quite remarkable. They couldn't get even the squishiest RINOs to going along with this. This is an entirely 100% Democratic operation. And it's really funny to see how surly progressives are about this on social media. They keep saying things like "they just worship Trump", "they're all part of the Trump cult" and "it's sad that apparently not one Republican cares about facts and reality." They like to hammer that last point a lot. Oh, those poor blind Republicans. Trump is walking out of the Oval Office with all of the furniture and huge bags of cash with dollar signs imprinted on them and they can't even see it. Of course, the reason for the unyielding Republican intransigence is that they actually can see obvious facts: they know when a man is being railroaded when they see it. They know that Trump's only crime has been that he got elected.

"Lastly, if you want to talk about being oblivious to reality, I would say that it is the Democrats who are oblivious -- oblivious to the damage they're causing our political institutions and the rule of law. Impeachment was meant to be a last resort remedy, but by their constant shrieking of "impeachment!", the Democrats have turned it into just another campaign strategy. They have significantly lowered the bar as to what constitutes an impeachable offense. Heck, everything Trump does going forward that they don't like will be an impeachable offense.

"Of course, it's not going to work, and then they're going to be faced with the possibility that next election, or the one after, the institutions that they've weaponized to use against Trump will be turned around and used against them."
