h/t forcibly deranged
With the Idiot Left marching toward impeachment over nothing, the idea apparently is to make it okay to kick out a president just because you don’t like him. A president then becomes nothing special, no big deal, no longer a force in the power politics of Washington. He can handle the glossy, just-for-show stuff like state dinners and handing out Medals of Freedom, but real power will reside down in the bowels of the permanent administrative bodies of the Deep State.
Actually, as has been explained in a number of places, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats don’t want a real “impeachment process” because then the Republicans could subpoena documents and call witnesses, during which the farce would become apparent. The Idiot Left would have egg all over its face, as it did when Robert Mueller testified before Congress about his shabby investigation.
So the true motive behind the Left’s insistence on an impeachment process is simply to keep that train moving in hopes of never actually arriving at the purported destination. To mix metaphors, we’ve seen this movie before: use the very idea of impeachment to throw mud on the president and keep the base riled. If they can’t change our minds via the education system, Hollywood, lies in the mass media, or union chicanery, they intend to wear us down by thuggery in the streets.
It was like this in 1917, when the Bolsheviks kept pressure on the legitimate government to give the impression that no one was in charge. more
