43. I dislike my Senator Inhofe with a vengence.

I do think it is important to indicate here that the reason he was not in the session last week was because his wife had a stroke. He was back in Tulsa with her.

Not fond of the man but he had a good reason for not being present. I figured someone would make a comment about his absence.

113. You might like this story

So in 1996, I was at Oklahoma State doing some grad work, and I was a member of a club (Latin Dancing and Cultural Club) that was going to be marching in the homecoming parade. I remember it was 1996 because all the floats and groups were snaked through a residential area in some sort of pattern waiting for their turn to go, and there was a Young Democrats float so I went over to get a Clinton/Gore sticker. Not a minute later, Jim Inhofe rides by on a horse. I go to the faculty advisor of our club who is taking pictures and tell her, "I'm going to ask Inhofe for a photo, put this sticker on his horse's saddle blanket, and you take it. She was all for it. Unfortunately, there was a kid with the Inhofe campaign standing next to the advisor waiting to give me a Inhofe sticker. So picture was taken, shake hands with Jim, get the sticker from the kid, and I walk around the horse and put the sticker on that side of the blanket. My hope was he would ride through the parade stumping for Clinton. Unfortunately, he rode over to where some marchers for a state republican candidate were, and they found it. And he immediately turned his horse around to come back to our group just as we were given the go-ahead to move out. I would have been easy to pick out - I was the only gringo in the club, and I had a bright orange mustache - but I was hunched down on the side of the truck that was part of our group, giggling and peeking through the windows at him standing up in his saddle, scanning the group for me with a pissed-off look on his face.

It could have ended there.

A few years later, I had decided I really wanted a job and left grad school and moved to Tulsa. A swing club (remember swing making a comeback in the late 90s?) was having a Latin dance weekend so some friends and I went both nights, including the lessons they were giving beforehand. (Sidenote: If your instructor is Hispanic/Latin, salsa was invented in the country of his or her heritage) A woman I didn't know showed up both nights as well. First night she said, "You look very familiar. I can't remember names, but I never forget a face." Second night, "Did you ever put a democratic sticker on a republican horse?" I thought maybe she had gone to OSU and had seen me do it though I thought there wasn't anyone near me. But no. She had just moved from Florida a few weeks ago, and apparently someone in some level of "the press" had taken my picture, and they put it on the wires, and her local paper had put it in their humor/human interest section.

A string of outlets shut down last week and a GFCI wouldn't reset. I freaked thinking about an electrician $$. I believe I had already posted my dilemma. I got the GGCI to reset. Then a flood light blew out and then one chandelier bulb, then two days later another.

Cue strange and eerie music. 👻

52. Why not. It will be a good reminder to the Chief Justice about his legacy as much as to senators.

They've got 24 hours -- more than enough time, and at prime time, when most Americans watch -- to present all their case and and all the Senate vote consequences they could want to.

Americans need to see what's at stake.

This trial is no time to mince words.

57. I appreciate Schiff.

Will go back and watch all of his remarks from the beginning.

I heard him emphasizing the pressure placed on these opening remarks. Basically, as goes the remarks so goes the Ďtrialí.

...
Is a shame that the republicans have carried themselves thus far as unserious and incurious as they undermine the country and Constitution. They must rise to the occasion or tRump & co. will be the end of them as well as their constituentsí future.

Or for that matter the senators.

But trump-teevee is tightly focused on schiff. You can't see anyone else. I'm sure that is intentional.

98. This is standard Gym Jordany word salad bullshit. The Senate will be ho hum about this.

Trump "denied" evidence -- executive privilege -- attacks on Schiff, Nadler Pelosi -- whyarewehere!, Dems been going for this since Trump's election -- "insurance," -- I'd like to make reference to SCOTUS
-- I'll criticize the investigations later -- the RUSH to impeachment after we had to wait SO LONG waaa -- executive privilege protects the constitution! -- Dems don't wait for judicial review! -- Dems want to remove Article 3! courts don't apply to them! -- we have the judiciary to make Dems wait! -- we'll preserve the Constitution by arguing this horrible process! -- Dems waited, then rushed impeachment! --

But hey, Word Salad Sekulow is NOT prepared to proceed.

Cipollone re-attacks Schiff, calls him a liar, a "manufacturer of fraudulent version of Trump's call."

Csshifty Cipollone.

Fuck these guys.

89. Four points Schiff laid out comparing the Clinton impeachment trial to the current Trump Impeachment

1. Rules for the the impeachment trial were devised through mutual consent, and not with one party imposing rules upon the other.

2. All 90,000 pages of documentation generated in the House were turned over to the Senate during the Clinton impeachment. That it is in question whether documents in tRumpís impeachment will be entered is wholly inconsistent with how the Clinton impeachment trial was handled.

3. The question of witnesses in the Clinton impeachment was not of whether to call witnesses, but whether to recall witnesses that had already appeared in the House. Clinton himself testified on camera and under oath. None of the key witnesses have testified yet, because of the pResidentís interference.

4. The testimony of witnesses had decorum issues not faced in this impeachment. (Meaning this one isnít about sex, itís about using millions of DoD funds to benefit tRumpís re-election.)

...
Heavily paraphrased, but worth recounting, I found these points really compelling and I wish Iíd taken a picture of the slide for this section of Schiffís presentation.
