Ted Cruz still blames his daughters for that Cancun trip and Trump’s daddy’s girls are not quite as political as we had previous thought. Trump may have also gotten a “target letter” indicating that something something is coming for him. Much like Trump trying to get Ivanka in at the...

Okay, I’ve been sporadically watching the impeachment trial today. Sporadically, because watching the trial isn’t literally my job. I had other pressing matters to attend to as well. But this is Josh Hawley’s job, at least for the moment—and, well, he doesn’t seem too interested in doing it. You remember Josh,...

Riot declared at 1:49pm. Pence evacuated at 2:26pm. The count is now $3.5 million supporting the 6 January demonstration, up from the $2.7 previously reported. The approach by the House impeachment managers is to not hold the GOP jury members accountable, rather showing how Mitt Romney and VP Pence nearly...

Club rules seem to apply and Democrats don’t have the Senate votes to convict, perhaps wishing to settle for impeaching Trump twice, despite the insurrectionist attack on the Capitol. GQP senators’ cowardice continues with their fear of Trumpist voters, not wishing â€śto purify government, prevent future crimes and give warning to those who...

From November 1994 to October 1995, the so-called trial of the century took place. It centered around murder, race, sex, athletics, and hero-worship. America was drawn to it like a badly made tv melodrama. We were subjected to constant tv break-ins, with breathless reporters recounting every gasp, sigh, and eye-roll...

On the eve of the Impeachment trial, it will be relived by  us.  The trial has to be done and we have to look at this insurrection.  ( All that are  emotionally or mentally able to).  We have to deal with the pain to get past the horror and hold  power...

“You know, you can go to Capitol Hill, you can go to the White House,” said one Oath Keeper on the October 29 call. “If they [DC police] are going to allow, you know, a mob to just, you know, basically storm buildings, they’re basically abrogating responsibilities.” Apparently, lazy reactionaries...

Like the Geico ad with Captain Ahab seeking a parking space, the Trumpists are searching for that moment when the government magically gets overthrown.

Mitch McConnell’s mini-me does his usual reactionary foolishness as the Senators are sworn in for the second Trump trial. “In a 55 to 45 vote that strongly suggested that the Senate does not have the votes to convict Donald Trump, senators narrowly killed a Republican effort to dismiss the impeachment...

Justice Roberts won’t preside over the Senate trial, if only because of the optics and fortunately the rules allow the Pro Tempore senator to preside.
