“Fun and Profit” is a way of saying some procedure is cute or attractive. Everyone loves fun and everyone loves profit, assuming it’s you having the fun and profiting… Today, the Democratic Party of USA is having fun and profiting from talking about, breathing about and inquiring about impeachment. It’s cute. The constitution empowers the House of Representatives to draw up articles of impeachment and the Senate to consider removing POTUS from office on the basis of those articles. At the moment, the scroll of impeachable offenses is very long but complicated. It just got simpler. Trump boasted that he did bully the president of Ukraine over military aid for helping foster a conspiracy theory about a leading Democratic candidate but claims he has that power and it wasn’t wrong to usurp Congress’ power to allocate funding for military aid and to invite foreign campaign contributions of “a thing of value”… It doesn’t get much better than that. Opinion polls show the public does watch the news if not congressional debate.
So, we are in an interesting time when the Ds can taste blood and even some Rs can see the writing on the wall. Where will it end?
I’m of two minds: on the one hand, I like the idea of the Ds competing against a corrupt party lead by a bumbling, ignorant idiot, and on the other hand, Trump could do a lot of damage in the coming year and a bit… He could also do a lot of damage if impeached and/or removed from office. He won’t go away soon unless, as one rep opined, he should be locked up in solitary confinement. I’d like to see that or worse. I’d like to see RICO applied to the whole rotten bunch, but I’ll hang on waiting for every pin, grenade or cannon-shot to fall. I’ll keep the popcorn coming.
