Senate Republicans are not happy to have the impeachment hot potato dropped in their laps. In fact, they’re reacting like scalded dogs and trying to excuse the inexcusable. They’re afraid of the feral Trumper base so they’re making lame excuses like a student trying to get out of taking an exam.
The Incredible Mr. Lindsey blames Speaker Pelosi for lax security during the Dipshit Insurrection and President Biden for not stopping impeachment.
Rand Paul blames his next-door neighbor for being mean to him. It’s his catch-all excuse.
Marco Rubio thinks impeachment is stupid. He’s a coward who fears a primary challenge from Princess Ivanka.
Ted Cruz blames Trump Derangement Syndrome. It’s something he should have had in 2016.
Tim Scott thinks an impeachment trial will lead to more hate and division. I will never call him Great Scott.
Tom Cotton thinks it’s unconstitutional to try a former president. I think he’s out of his cotton-pickin’ mind.
Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are playing both sides against the middle. They seem to have forgotten that they blamed the Impeached Insult Comedian for the Dipshit Insurrection.
Amnesia seems to be the default GOP position. Remember when they were the party of personal responsibility? If inciting an insurrection isn’t an impeachable act, what is?
It all boils down to this: The Dog Ate The Constitution.
I had a little fun with the featured image. It depicts two of my favorite movie/teevee dogs Asta from The Thin Man movies and Eddie from Frasier. Neither dog nor Nick and Nora Charles would ever eat the constitution. I’m not so sure about Frasier Crane. Hopefully, Marty would stop him. Eddie was his pooch, after all.
The last word goes to Squeeze and Peter Gabriel:
