After today's pathetic performance by Moscow Mitch and his crew of Flying Monkeys someone ought to write a book titled "Profiles in Cowardice". The first chapters could feature such exemplary Senators as Mitt (I REALLY want to be President) Romney, Susan (I'm Concerned) Collins, Lisa (I'm a Renegade except when I'm not) Murkowski and Rand (I'm against anything everyone else is for) Paul, followed by a stunning cast of some 49 other mediocrities. It would make for interesting reading, provided that you could get through it without injuring yourself by repeated projectile vomiting.

...on that side of the Capitol building. Moscow Mitch and his minions were thoroughly outgunned and outclassed by the House Managers. Schiff & Nadler's Good Cop/Bad Cop routine was particularly effective, calling out the Republican Senators TO THEIR FACES for participating in Trump's coverup, and thereby goading Chief Justice Roberts to "remind" everybody that this is supposed to be the greatest deliberative body in the world (all evidence to the contrary).

All of the House Managers should be very proud of their performance on the first day of the Impeachment Trial. Speaker Pelosi chose them very well.

I love this.

They are indeed the greatest deliberative body on that side o the Capitol building. And no farther.
