“The difference between this and parody?” asked Loserthink author Scott Adams, referring to Adam Schiff’s latest rationale for impeaching the president. His answer: no difference.
“It’s completely merged.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Cal.), repeating a theme he had been pushing all week on talk shows, had tweeted to explain why the Democrats “had to move forward with articles of impeachment:
The threat persists.
The plot goes on.
And Trump’s efforts to cheat in the next election will never stop.
The President — and his lawyer — continue to make the case for his own removal.
Scott Adams found it impossible not to see this as an appeal to ‘pre-crime’ to distract us from the paucity of evidence the two impeachment committees had collated.
After yesterday’s deed had been done, Schiff castigated Republicans for failing to vote for the “historic” impeachment. “They have made their choice and I believe they will rue the day that they did.”
Adams thinks it will be Schiff to rue Impeachment Day, 2020. By genius or luck, President Trump has egged Democrats to do the one thing that will help him most: play Bad Boy and survive impeachment, making Democrats look ridiculous in the process.
He knows it: “It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached,” Mr. Trump said as the impeachment votes were tallied in the House, using the Majestic Plural.
Only if the Senate convicts Trump will this scenario not help the president.
“We” for Trump refers (obviously) to himself and the people . . . who voted for him.
But he had made a more telling remark earlier: “I’m the only politician in history that have [sic] kept more promises than I made.”
The president’s Yogi Berra-ism was deliberately hyperbolic.
The Democrats’ form of comedy seems . . . less advertent.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.
