Instead of just continuing our discussion in "Clown Car" and "Holy Hell" and "Is Donald Trump Done For?" should we have a separate thread for our reactions/reflections on Trump's impeachment trail in the Senate? I don't have much to kick us off with, because I haven't been near a TV, mostly. I saw a little of McConnell's opening speech, and the little I saw made me sick to my stomach. Really, you're boasting of using rules agreed to 100-0 . . . twenty years ago? Wonder why there wasn't any opportunity for this senate to come to an agreement on rules for the conduct of this impeachment? And then . . . not actually observing those rules, even, i.e. three days down to two.
