Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
As the public impeachment circus hearings come to a close, America asks, what in the hell was that all about? – Having worked in the communications field for a long, long time, one of the first things I learned was that if you cannot make your case to the average American in 25 words or less – 50 at the outside – you don’t have a case.
The average American has the attention span of the average house cat. If you aren’t giving them some food or scratching them at just the right spot behind the ears, they’re going to move onto focusing on the next thing that moves. That is why this impeachment circus is going to go down as one of the most epic fails in our nation’s history.
Over the last 8 days, Bug-eyes Schiff has paraded a series of non-witnesses across the nation’s television screens who not only could not make their case in 25 to 50 words, they couldn’t do it in 25 to 50 minutes. By the time people like Bill Taylor or this David what’s-his-name who testified on Thursday with Fiona Hill finished their interminable, confusing opening statements, most Americans had either tuned out or committed suicide just to make the bad men stop.
It has been hilarious watching during the breaks as DC Swamp skunks like Chris Wallace have classified a Marie Yovanovitch or a Gordan Sondland as a “compelling witness,” knowing that these insufferable gossips were compelling only to their fellow denizens of the Swamp. No one in the rest of America gave a damn what these people had to say, and that is already starting to show up in the public opinion polls.
Think about it: Everyone in America knew what Watergate was all about. There was a burglary and the President lied and obstructed justice to try to cover it all up. That’s 18 words.
Everyone in America knew what the Clinton impeachment was all about. The President was having sex with a plump intern in the Oval Office and he lied and obstructed justice to try to cover it all up. That’s 26 words. Easy.
In this Ukraine deal, the Democrats have simply failed to make any cogent case describing succinctly what it is all about. Anyone who managed to listen to this parade of offended bureaucrats came away more confused than anything else, and frankly pissed off to see first-hand the sort of petty jealousies and turf-protection activities that appear to dominate in America’s diplomatic corps.
This whole process is a stunning, amazing failure by a Democrat Party armed with the support of 95% of the nation’s corrupt news media. In order for it to succeed, Schiff and his band of circus clowns would have had to move public opinion in favor of impeachment to such an extent that a bunch of Republican members of the house and senate came over to their side. Instead, the first raft of polling data shows they have only succeeded in moving it in the President’s favor.
Republicans, in fact, are so fired up that a group of GOP senators – including Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and Mitt Romney (!) – got together at the White House with President Trump today and agreed that it would be to their advantage to hold a full-fledged trial in the Senate should the Democrats ultimately approve articles of impeachment.
Rather than try to make this thing go away quickly, the GOP is now ready to prolong it right into the presidential primary season.
These past 8 days are the worst 8 days in the Democrat Party’s history. They will ultimately ensure that Bug-eyes Schiff’s place in U.S. history will be as one of the greatest failures ever to walk the halls of congress. Awesome.
That is all.
