A Party Mired in Corruption

A sweet stroll down memory lane, from April 9, 2013:
"Might I share with you this insatiable little fantasy of mine? It involves our boy Mitch. You see, I have this dream of beating the distinguished gentleman from Kentucky to a fucking, bleeding pulp. Confronting him in a dark alley somewhere in the District of You-Know-Where, I can visualize pounding his skull to the very edge of existence. Once he got the message, I might then be seriously tempted to set the decrepit old son-of-a-bitch on fire - just to keep things interesting, you understand. But that kind of treatment would be much too harsh and brutal - even for the likes of Mitch McConnell. Just stuff the bruised and bloodied little bastard into a dumpster behind some third-rate pizzeria on K Street, where he can think things over while he recuperates."
A bit harsh, I'll admit. In the following paragraph I apologized for the violence of my imagery. It was, after all, the Easter season when all good Christians (and I hope I am one) are celebrating the resurrection of the Prince of Peace.

As someone who has studiously explored the history of this once-great nation, I can honestly tell you that Mitch McConnell is the most completely contemptible "human being" that has ever slithered his way through the halls of congress. For all his flaws, McCarthy was, in his private interactions - and by all accounts - a likable and amiable guy. The fact is that people (on both sides of the aisle) thoroughly enjoyed his company. Mitch McConnell, on the other hand, is inherently despicable. If there is a more corrupt politician to serve in the last seventy years, I would sure as hell like to know about it. Mitch is determined that this so-called "trial" in the senate is kept in the dark and shielded from the eyes on the American people. It's not just Moscow Mitch, it's that entire disgusting party. "Party" is a misnomer. That is an organized criminal enterprise. What more proof do you need?

Trump and the Republicans are determined that this "trial" proceed without witnesses. The Donald has stated that, while he would like John Bolton to testify, he cannot possibly do so for reasons of "national security. The right-wingers are all in agreement. Their problem is the nasty fact that Bolton's memoirs of this unfortunate chapter in his life are due to be released to the public in June. When that happens, the truth will be out there for all to see. Those unfortunate politicians will then be exposed as traitors who attempted to hide from the American voters the treachery of the Trump administration. I don't envy any of them. I'm just saying.

Good luck, Idiot Nation.

In the senate, a trial by peers means fellow mobsters in the jury.

New Fox News poll: by a margin of 50% to 44%, Americans want Trump convicted and removed from office. Just the facts.

"Mitch McConnell, on the other hand, is inherently despicable" Please provide a list of those who have met Mitch and have said that he was "inherently despicable".

You don't need to met Mitch McConnell to say he's "inherently despicable." His hypocrisy is off the charts. And, by not moving on legislation passed by the House of Representatives, he's not doing the job he was elected to do.
