It should come as no surprise to anyone in this country or the world, especially the Republican home office in Moscow, that the impeachment “trial” that Mitchell “Moscow Mitch” McConnell promised to fix came out just as he promised it would. Working hand-in-hand with the White House, McConnell was able tp make Republicans snivel in fear at the prospect of being called a nasty name by the current president, Putin’s Puppet.
In an op-ed in the New York Times titled In Private, Republicans Admit They Acquitted Trump Out of Fear, Democratic senator and man with a real spine, Sherrod Brown noted:
Speaking of how fear if the current president scares Republican senators to their very toes:
Late in the evening on day four of the trial I saw it, just 10 feet across the aisle from my seat at Desk 88, when Mr. Schiff told the Senate: “CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidant said that Republican senators were warned, ‘Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.’” The response from Republicans was immediate and furious. Several groaned and protested and muttered, “Not true.” But pike or no pike, Mr. Schiff had clearly struck a nerve. (In the words of Lizzo: truth hurts.)
For the stay-in-office-at-all-cost representatives and senators, fear is the motivator. They are afraid that Mr. Trump might give them a nickname like “Low Energy Jeb” and “Lyin’ Ted,” or that he might tweet about their disloyalty. Or — worst of all — that he might come to their state to campaign against them in the Republican primary. They worry: (list of fees including being belittle by Putin’s Pet or Fox Fake Nooz)
So watching the mental contortions they perform to justify their votes is painful to behold: They claim that calling witnesses would have meant a never-ending trial. They tell us they’ve made up their minds, so why would we need new evidence? They say to convict this president now would lead to the impeachment of every future president — as if every president will try to sell our national security to the highest bidder.
I have asked some of them, “If the Senate votes to acquit, what will you do to keep this president from getting worse?” Their responses have been shrugs and sheepish looks.
One journalist remarked to me, “How in the world can these senators walk around here upright when they have no backbone?”
Just imagine what a senator, like say Joni Ernst, whose single biggest concern in the world is not what is right and best for our country, but instead is what kind of an insult Putin’s Puppet might hurl at her, might be willing to ignore to keep that from happening. She might become a gutless, spineless, quivering mass willing to overlook even the most compelling evidence to keep from being insulted by Putin’s Pet.
Senator Grassley, himself a veteran of nonsense witch hunts of politicians from the Democratic Party, might just open a hearing on former VP Joe Biden in order to show his fealty to Putin’s Pet.
Now that Republicans have basically destroyed the constitution and given unrestrained power to Putin’s Puppet they have reason to be fearful. Democrats, however, still believe that right is what must prevail.
Republicans in general have shown to be driven by fear. Many have noted that Mitt Romney stood up against that fear. I beg to differ on that analysis. Romney has been a quivering bowl of Jello before Putin’s Pet before and he most likely will be again. Romney like other Republicans is driven by fear. It is just in Mitt Romney’s case he is as fearful of his God as he is of Putin’s Puppet. Does this put God and PP on the same level?
So Romney’s solution was to split his two votes and give one to his God and vote for impeachment and one to Putin’s Puppet and vote against impeachment. A Solomon like solution. It appears so far that instead of appeasing both, he has really pissed off at least one. Oh well, it was worth a try.
But you know who really has courage? A tiny lady from San Francisco name of Nancy Pelosi. Now this little lady named Nancy had the audacity, some would say the guts, to perform an act that upset Putin’s Puppet mightily. After Mr. PP gave a speech that Nancy thought was full of lies, she tore the speech up right in front of PP’s face. She has more courage in her little finger than the whole of the Republican Party of jellyfish.
The Republican Party just melted in fear of what Putin’s Puppet might do to Nancy. Of course they had to jump in early start the insults to make sure that Putin’s Puppet in any way thought they supported Nancy. Nope they had to to start sniveling and crawling in front of Putin’s Puppet immediately. For they are deathly afraid of what he will do to them, just as he is doing to Romney right now.
Yet Nancy has shown them that standing up to the bully works. But they are way, way, way too afraid to try it. Meanwhile Putin’s Puppet is getting ready to use the power of his office to go after his political enemies. How did he get the idea that he could do this? Why from the cowardly Republican Party led by ‘afraid of nicknames’ “Moscow Mitch McConnell.”
And out in Billings, Montana, a state legislator by the name of Randy Garcia believes that the constitution calls for the shooting of socialists. Patience, Randy, that won’t come true until Putin’s Puppet steals the next election.
