With a deft maneuver today raising a point of order to require a vote of the full Senate to dismiss the sham impeachment case against Donald Trump, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul demonstrated clearly that the divisive Senate Democrats have no chance of obtaining a conviction in their ongoing jihad to keep persecuting the man even after he has left office.
Sen. Paul is at his best when he is focused on being a thorn in the fat butt of Chuck Schumer, and he played that role delightfully today, beginning his parliamentary maneuver with an epic floor speech that should be required viewing for every American:
"Democrats are about to drag our great country down into the gutter of rancor and vitriol the likes of which has never been seen in our nation’s history… It’s almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump." pic.twitter.com/kiCimV0GIX

A true thing of beauty right there.
Then, the vote came, with the motion to dismiss failing when 5 RINOs joined their Democrat partners in opposition. For the record and so you all can know your enemy, here are the names of the 5 RINOs:
Seriously, I could have predicted that lineup in my damn sleep. It’s as if Mitch McConnell put out the order to round up the usual suspects.
Interestingly, McConnell himself actually voted in favor of Paul’s motion, which directly contradicts his actions and statements in support of this sham impeachment over the past few weeks. Wonder who got to him?
In any event, the vote on the motion can most likely be taken as an extremely accurate predictor of how the ultimate vote to convict will turn out once this farce of a process comes to a bitter end. But the divisive Democrats will move forward anyway, because the point here is not to convict: The point is to divide a hopelessly divided nation even further.
That’s what today’s political left is all about, and frankly what it has been all about for a century now. It’s the only thing they know how to do.
That is all.
