The drama of the Senate trial is continuing, as the Democrats lose their collective minds, joined by six squishy Republicans to continue this Stalin-esque show trial. I feel that the glue of their unceasing hatred for al things Trump is all that's keeping the party from arguing amongst themselves at this point.
The point, of course, is to sully Private Citizen Trump so that he won't run for office again. Honestly, I could't blame him for fading into political obscurity and spending his golden years in semi-retirement.
Anyone with a lick of common sense can see the blatant unconstitutionality of this trial. With Senator Leahy acting as both judge and juror, the supreme moot-ness of the proceedings, we have to ask ourselves what the Democrats hop to achieve.
I know that for myself, this entire proceeding has revealed some flaws in my own voting record. I once voted for Mitt Romney; that will never happen again. I once voted for Bill Cassidy, and I'll not make that mistake ever again. Having an open mind is one thing, having an empty mind is something else entirely.
So, knowing that a conviction is all but impassible, we have to ask ourselves what the end-game might be. Next week, they won't have Trump to hate on anymore, and they will have to settle down and govern a terribly divided nation. For all Biden's talk of unity, I admit that I haven't seen anything that makes me want to give him the benefit of the doubt.
This week, the political process is like watching paint dry. It's pointless. Next week, what else are they going to come up with?
