Moscow Mitch is the Most Cowardly Man on the North American Continent

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell excoriated Donald Trump on Saturday for being “morally responsible” for the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and suggested he could face future criminal liability, but said he voted to acquit him at the impeachment trial because lawmakers had no jurisdiction over a former president.

First off, McConnell could have begun the trial on his watch as Senate Majority Leader, when Trump was still in office. He could have called the Senate back into session. It was his choice not to do it.

Second, if he truly believes that Trump was responsible, he had the power to fucking do something about it. But hell, he's a coward and the last thing he wants to do is take a stand for anybody other then the rich and corporations, so he didn't.

Punting to the criminal justice system was nothing but proof that there is a foot-wide yellow stripe down his back. McConnell is happy to run his mouth, but that's all he does, now.

McConnell will have to ooze along the ground, leaving a trail of slime wherever he goes, because one thing is certain: He has even less of a backbone than did his predecessor as majority leader.

Mitch and Pelosi are two halves of the same turd.

Now the Republican poltroons in the senate have (they hope) avoided a Fergus-fueled primary challenge by selling out their country, it's our job to use the evidence the impeachment managers and their staff provided to turn the general elections they face into their worst nightmares, and as there are fifteen of the despicable creeps up for election next year, give Biden a filibuster proof supermajority for the second half of his first term.

Well Gromit, aren't you the insightful, reasoned intelleckshul?

I agree Doug but the reason they acquitted him was so they CAN be reelected. The Ted's,Rand's, Ron's, Matt's etc, aren't going anywhere.He has a green light for 24 now. And Mitch sleeps the sleep of the just on his my pillow every night.

So they can get reelected in the primary. The general is an entirely different story, not dominated by Fergus' idiot hordes, and they've kindly provided us with a pile of ammunition to use against them there.
The rest is up to us.
