Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Is that really all there is? – Some low-level flunky at the NSC claims to have been “concerned” about the July 25 call between U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, and therefore we are supposed to support the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment circus?
Yeaaaahhhhhh….no. Not buying any of it. Sorry.
God bless Mr. Vindman for his military service, but can we please get him out of the NSC? Because, obviously his feelings are far too fragile to be a part of that difficult line of work.
Literally, the only thing Vindman said in his opening statement that was leaked by Adam Schiff to the media last night that in any way benefits the public discourse over this matter was when he confirmed that the transcript of it, which we have all been able to read and obsess over for the last five weeks, is a completely accurate recitation of what was said on the call. Here’s that key passage from his statement:
On July 25, 2019, the call occurred. I listened in on the call in the Situation Room with colleagues from the NSC and the office of the Vice President. As the transcript is in the public record, we are all aware of what was said.
Yes, we are all aware of what was said, and those of us whose level of reading comprehension is better than that of the average 6 year-old can plainly see that there was literally nothing wrong with anything the President of the United States said on that call.
Given all of that, why was Mr. Vindman even called to testify before the Schiff Soviet-style inquisition? Why, so that he could dress up in his uniform with all of his medals on it and parade into the hearing room, pausing to pose for all of the media cameras, and give the Democrats who spent 8 years defunding the military and the VA under Obama a chance to pretend to give a damn about the U.S. armed services for a day.
But once the one-man parade is over and his uniform and medals are put back into his closet – Vindman does not wear his uniform to his actual daily job – all we are left with from Vindman’s testimony is what we already knew: That this is all a sham and a farce over nothing. It’s the political version of an episode of “Seinfeld,” only without the funny parts.
In other impeachment-related news, House Majority Whip Stenny Hoyer is now backing off of Pelosi’s promise that the Democrats will hold a vote on their fancy new fake resolution by the end of this week. Pelosi had said Monday night that she expects the vote to take place on Thursday, but Hoyer is now not so sure, saying “We’re going to have to consider whether or not it’s ready to go on Thursday. I hope that’s the case.”
Oh. What does that tell us? It tells us that Pelosi, Hoyer and the rest of the Democrat House Circus Clown leadership are waiting to see some polling data on this whole resolution thing before they take it to a vote. It also tells us that they are obviously still getting pushback on the question from many of their most vulnerable members who represent traditionally Republican districts.
San Fran Nan can’t and won’t make the move to cross this particular road until all her ducks are in a row, and some of the little duckies don’t want to get in line for fear they might end up being road kill.
That is all.
