I’m all over the place on impeachment. Obviously, I was ready to impeach the motherfucker on or about 1 pm on inauguration day, so when I see cries to impeach him my gut shrieks “FUCK YES IMPEACH THAT SON OF A BITCH DO IT TWICE FUCK IT DO IT A THIRD TIME JUST FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES.” So, yes, I support impeaching the prick.
At the same time, I realize that impeaching him now (despite being an obvious congressional duty to uphold the fucking law) is kind of pointless. There is no way in hell the craven Republicans would vote to convict. So we’d have impeached him, shot the wad, and nothing would change.
So basically, where I am right now, with both competing thoughts, is to keep working on every front to expose his lies and fraud and criminality- let the subpoenas for his information work through the courts, get the information you can, build your best case, and then hope some fault lines appear in the GOP and public opinion keeps going in our way. Then impeach.
It also occurs to me that all of this MIGHT BE the process of impeachment, it’s just too fucking slow for someone like me who wants the prick out of office and in jail yesterday. So when people are screaming about Pelosi not using the “I” word, they just don’t realize she IS in the process of impeaching him. That’s a possibility.
At any rate, despite me champing at the bit, I’m aware that launching the D-Day invasion with only 1/3 the troops would have probably have been a disaster, so I am telling myself to just calm down and see what happens. It’s hard, after years of middling sternly worded letters, but for now I am holding back and letting all this damaging info come out and happy to let the Republicans continue to defend the scumbag when there is no defense. We’ll see what happens.
