Dear god the GOP is so stupid. They actually put up this sign.



They don’t realize it, but they’re saying Adam Schiff followed the House rules yesterday.

Seems he is following house rules. The problem is the majority just makes the rules. I hope they save the sign to give to Democrat Senators. They will be able to cross out Schiff and replace with McConnell.

Any bets on the number of times Booker and Harris whine about 'the unfair process' during the Senate trial?

Probably not. It will be controlledl by Chief Justice John Roberts.

I really doubt it

Interesting. I knew that he 'presided', but thought that the "Majority" (Republicans) get to set a bunch of rules, sort of like how the House Majority (Democrats) have set the rules there.

I don't follow the Supreme Court much, but I am happy a native of Buffalo will be presiding. For those who are more in the know, will he (Roberts) receive bipartisan support? Or will one side allege he is biased against them?

Who says the hearings are meaningless.

“In the pivotal swing state of Wisconsin, Donald Trump leads the top four Democratic presidential contenders by three to eight points. The significance is that the same poll released in October had Trump trailing all those candidates badly.”

Of course polls are meaningless
at this point, but a lot of Dems
are changing their underwear
over this. Polls were supposed
to plummet on Trump.Pelosi
actually warned them about
this. That it makes the person
even more popular.

This is Gym Jordan’s district. Now I understand why they can never vote his dumb ass out of there.



I grew up in Maumee (top of the screenshot). Gym’s district is basically gerrymandered to only include farmland (and Lima, which is half white trash and half ghetto AF).

Remember yesterday after the SchittShow news
conference at noon, and Ken Starr proclaimed
Trump was done and the Rep Senators should
march to the WH and tell Trump to resign, like
they did with Nixon?

Today he's denying that happened. He saying
what impeachable offence, I see nothing he
did that was wrong. You can't make this crap
up, folks.

Politicians picking voters instead of voters picking politicians. Sounds about right in Trump's America.
