…so, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Senate Impeachment proceedings were the height of political theatre masquerading as procedure
…& you’d have a pretty strong case even after they conceded that 24hrs spread over three days instead of two made more sense…& that (most of?) the evidence advanced in House ought to be considered admissible
…the party lines voting on not pushing for the various things the White House has failed to provide or the various other tranches of copiously incriminating evidence of one sort or another…& indeed the whole desperate attempt to get his ineptness the great orange hairslick his precious acquittal in time for that state of the union address alone make it pretty clear that the whole thing is a fucking travesty in slow motion
…but as ever it’s amateur hour compared to the OG gangster president of what he clearly still thinks of as the USSR
…gotta love that someone noticed this though
…& speaking of noticing things…anyone notice that somebody noticed that a certain Devin Nunes (known primarily for being not-a-farmer with a 100sqft “farm” & possessed of litigation-fever so extreme as to have sued a parody twitter account without apparently troubling himself to learn the meaning of the term parody) was way ahead of the field on getting the pronunciation of Lev Parnas’ name correct?
…how could he (& Hannity, it would seem?) possibly have known that we were all pronouncing that wrong all that time ago when he’d never even heard of Ukraine on account of being so busy farming like a real farmer because he’s a real farmer okay & not just a prime source of bullshit?
…you see, it’s not Parnas-to-rhyme-with-ass as in “Devin Nunes is a colossal ass” but Parnas-to-rhyme-with-arse as in “in the UK the whole Devin Nunes’ cow thing makes little sense to most folks since the man is clearly a horse’s arse” which I only recently discovered because I mostly read rather than watch or listen so pretty much everything about that was news to me except for the bit where Devin Nunes is a gob-smacking-ly stupendous moron
…ah, well – at least we’re half-way to the weekend?
