7. We, well Democrats doing the impeachment, need to be wary of fake evidence.

Especially if its too good to be true.
Rather and the truth, got a rough ride back then not because what he reported on was false, that W went awol, but that the report was not the original copy, and so the possibility that it could have been doctored, made it moot. This after Dan swore by it. So he had to pay the price.

I can totally see the GOP covertly getting some salacious 'smoking gun' transcript or notes they themselves made up into the hands of Schiff without giving away that it came from them. And as soon as Schiff or others in the Democratic party, start using it as part of their evidence, it is revealed as some fake document. Then the 24/7 Fox News onslaught how this proves its all a deep state run Democratic coup. Giving Senate Republicans the excuse to dismiss the case outright. And gives them great ammunition in the next election as well.

We'll call him "Sir Sarcasm".

under the new Dem President With Subpoena power! Hey I can dream, right? He's always been a truth teller.

When we screw up we own it, apologize and, in many cases, resign. Think Dan Rathers, Al Franken, and how many others? When they screw up itís deny, obfuscate, accuse, and refuse to relinquish control. I think we have to stop apologizing and capitulating.

17. I think THEY should change.

Of course, that means we need to get some teeth. Somehow. Because they won't change until they are compelled to. So we need to find ways to compel them.

are SUPPOSED to behave doesnít seem to be working.

22. SOP for repiggies these days.

Deny, deflect and accuse everyone else of that which you, yourself, are guilty. The fucktard repiggies eat it up. They love the orange asshole and the damage done.

We had better dismantle this, very quickly, or we may not be able to recover from the damage done. NOT EVER.

Not to sound like a used car salesman, or any salesman for that matter, but "TIME IS RUNNING OUT ON THIS DEAL, ACT NOW."

Time to remove this asshole, convict this asshole, imprison this asshole, is running short.
