The Morning Rant

"I saw a meme floating around yesterday that claimed that the Democrats have tried to impeach every Republican president since Eisenhower.

"I thought, hmmmm, that's interesting, can that really be true? I decided to do a little digging.

"The site that was on the top of the list of Google results for this topic was snopes, which rated it "mostly false." So I rolled my eyes and clicked on the link, just to see how they'd spin it. The heading they gave it was 'Mostly False'. So I thought, ok, maybe it's just one of those urban legends that is factually deficient. But wait, here is the first thing they said about it:

What's True
Articles of impeachment were introduced against five of the six Republican presidents who have served since President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

"So why is this 'mostly false'? Apparently, the Democrats never got around to impeaching Ford, who only served for two years. Well then, it looks to me like the meme is 5/6th correct. Not so fast, says snopes. None of the attempts against any of the other Republicans ever had any significant support from either party. I don't understand why that argument invalidates the claim. I guess snopes is arguing like Whoopi Goldberg, i.e. the GOP presidents may have been impeached, but they weren't impeached-impeached.

"The facts stated in the snopes entry were essentially correct. But the snopes partisans twisted themselves into knots trying to minimize and explain away what the Democrats had done.

"Previously, I had accused the Democrats of turning the impeachment process into just another instrument in their political toolbox, just so they could get Trump. I thought that was a new #OrangeManBad thing. Apparently, I was mistaken. They've been doing this for awhile. Democratic bad faith on this is a lot older than I had realized.

Also, despite the outrageous spin, I actually learned something from the snopes entry. So visiting that site was not a complete waste of time."

This is just a collection of some Persian eye candy, actors and models, I found with Google. There's no intended connection between any of them. I think the 'rons will enjoy the hotties, but I don't do so well correctly gauging the tastes of the 'ettes. So we'll see.

Monday's Celebs: Actress Eva Green and Jonny Lee Miller, whom most of you probably recognize from the Elementary TV series. Both had roles in the 2012 reboot of the old Dark Shadows soap opera daytime drama. I'm actually old enough to remember when Dark Shadows was A Thing.
