Are You Tired of Impeachment Yet?

Watching Democratic lawmakers walking over to the Senate to deliver the articles of impeachment formally, I couldn’t help but be reminded of days gone by when Ringling Brothers would come to town. There would be news coverage of the animals filing into the Lincoln Tunnel on the way to Madison Square Garden for a spectacular exhibition. The difference between this caravan and the legislators processing through the Capitol Rotunda is that the former was supposed to culminate in a circus. At the same time, the latter evolved into one due to Democratic partisan bumbling and incompetence. Or perhaps that is what we are supposed to think. 

Nancy Pelosi looks like a fool right now, and although she may be any things, the Speaker is no fool. This impeachment farce may seem like an exercise in futility since the chances of conviction in the Senate are roughly equivalent to winning the Powerball and the Megaball in the same week. Could there be something else at play here? Are the powers that be in the Democratic Party intentionally trying to sideline Warren and Sanders in favor Of Joe Biden?

The proposal may come from a place of valid concern for the Earth’s climate, but it also demonstrates a dangerous ignorance of global energy security and the U.S. economy. The harebrained scheme raises questions about Professor Warren’s fitness to serve as President.
