People from the deep South do not consider Kentuckians to be Southerners, but we really are to be honest. Yes, technically we are a border state that never seceded from the Union, but we had slavery. And many of our attitudes are similar to other Southerners. And we are now a redstate.
So I think I can say this as someone who is a Southerner: Republicans from the South make the most annoying Trolls.
For example, there is the lying sack of shit called Senator John Kennedy of LA. I had the misfortune of listening to him pontificate about how cowardly Democrats are when it comes to moving toward impeachment of the orange ape in the White House. TPM has some of what he says online:
During a Sunday appearance on “Face the Nation,” Kennedy ranted that Democrats need to hurry up and make a decision on whether they want to impeach President Donald Trump or not.
“You know, if you want to do it, go to Amazon online, buy spine, and do it,” Kennedy said. “But go hard or go home. If you’re not going to do it, then let us get back to work.”
“I hate to waste a year and a half,” he complained.
First up, it’s just annoying hearing this all with a Southern drawl. When said with some honesty, the Southern drawl is a nice theatrical flourish to an argument. Think of Senator Sam Ervin during the Waterage hearings. But when I hear BS with a Southern drawl, I just think of some corrupt county sheriff from a Hollywood film, or the Boss Hogg character from the TV series “The Dukes of Hazzard.”
Next, nice of you Senator Kennedy to come out and try to goad Democrats into impeaching Trump, especially after McConnell confirmed he will kill the Senate trial in a nanosecond. Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for starting impeachment hearings NOW, but something tells me that Kennedy wants to bury the impeachment and Senate trial in some bayou ASAP.
And I would not put it past Kennedy to be practicing a psych out of Democrats. “Go on Democrats! Bring it On! We will kill this immediately and humiliate you!” It’s a threat of what he and his fellow Republicans will do, and he is making the cost so high that Democrats will not bother to impeach.
And the tell that Kennedy is trying to pull reverse psychology — ham handed as it is — is the “I hate to waste a year and a half” line.
The U.S. Senate does NOTHING, except confirm judges. Period. No other bill except a tax cut for the wealthy has gotten through. If I am not mistaken, there are 100 House bills for consideration that the Senate refuses to take up. And any Democratic bills proposed in the Senate are never brought up.
McConnell and the rest of the Republicans wrecked the Senate years ago. They literally believe in the old line, “Just don’t stand there. Do nothing!”
Therefore, Senator Kennedy is nothing more than a Troll with a Southern accent.
