Mitch Mcconnell statement

Feb 1999


"Time after time, the President came to a fork in the road. Time after time, he had the opportunity to choose the noble and honorable path. Time after time, he chose the path of lies and lawlessness—for the simple reason that he did not want to endanger his hold on public office."

"The President would seek to win at any cost. If it meant lying to the American people. If it meant lying to his Cabinet," he continued. "The name of the game was winning. Winning at any cost."

"He took an oath to faithfully execute the laws of this nation, and he violated that oath," the senator said. "He pledged to be the nation's chief law enforcement officer, and he violated that pledge. He took an oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and he willfully and repeatedly violated that oath."

"I think that the United States Senate has a clear choice," McConnell said at the time. "Do we want to retain President Clinton in office, or do we want to retain our honor, our principle, and our moral authority?"

"For me, and for many members in my impeachment-fatigued party, I choose honor," he said.

FU Mr. Gibbs

Said that it was wrong to have this testimony while trump was on the other side of the world.

That bastard is in VIETNAM surrendering to freaking NORTH KOREA!

Thank you so much for the heart

and for your support of DU. That was very kind and I appreciate being thought of, thank you.

why GOP wins sometimes, imho

It is sort of amazing that republicans win at all, they are constantly exposing themselves as either idiots or awful mean people or both.

I think they reason they win sometimes is that they will all stick together and toe the line and agree to anything even if they know it isn't true. They will stick to it.

We, on the other hand, will argue about any damn thing. Look at DU. People are constantly looking for nuance of some story and trying to communicate different points of view. Republicans, man, they think what they are supposed to think.

I know I am over simplifying. I also know that by posting this to a bunch of democrats that most people will disagree with something about it.

I think that it is more healthy to have different opinions and hash them out rather than fall in line like a bunch of authoritarians, but I think it helps them "win." Like most of you, I learn more from people I don't agree with than from people I already agree with. I learn more from listening than from talking most of the time. But I don't think "they" are interested in "learning."

We should have like a safe word. A like "time to circle the wagons" signal.

NRA Coolers

a while ago ProfessorGAC posted that the NRA offered to send a free cooler to new members.

Way, way after the fact, while driving to town this morning, my subconscious mind finally broke through with the joke. Timing is everything.

Q: What do you call an NRA cooler?
A: A "Nyetti"

I found one thing i can think trump for

My 401 K May be down 7.5% but a pound of tofu was $1.44 at Walmart
