House Speaker Pelosi dispatched a procession to the Senate to deliver a 1,426 word leather-bound document containing articles of impeachment. The Speaker and her acolytes hope to frogmarch President Trump out of the White House.

But, as The Washington Post reports:

For all the pageantry, both Johnson and Clinton’s impeachments ended in acquittal. Trump’s probably will too…

Standard Christmas Gift Return Cartoon

This is the time of the year cartoonists like to head over to the gift return department. Just draw a dissatisfied customer returning some unwanted political gift and presto, it’s back to the holiday schnapps.

My offering this year concerns Nancy Pelosi’s gifts of Christmas present and Christmas past.

The House impeached President Trump just in time for Christmas 2019. Ten years ago The Senate rushed Obamacare through on Christmas Eve. Speaker Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it. But they’re still not sure.

In 2012The Supreme Court upheld The Affordable Care Act by calling the individual mandate to buy insurance a tax. But in 2017 Congress reduced the mandate to zero. So last month an appeals court ruled that if there’s no revenue there’s no tax, and killed the mandate. Then the court sent the case back to a judge in Texas who says with no mandate there can be no Obamacare. Got that?

Cheers!

Impeachment Express Secret Testimony

Past impeachment inquiries were handled by the House Judiciary Committee. But Nancy Pelosi snatched that job from Jerry Nadler and gave it to Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. Now he’s taking whistle blower testimony in secret and the Impeachment Express is on track to take down Trump.

Pelosi runs the railroad but she’s a reluctant impeacher.  She says nobody comes to Congress to impeach a president,

Well, almost nobody. And now Nancy’s on board to impeach The Motherf***r

Democrat Congresswomen Cheer Trump’s Speech

I never expected President Trump’s speech to have the new Democratic congresswomen high fiving and chanting “U.S.A., U.S.A.” But he did. The president brought the ladies in white to their feet by proclaiming there are more women in Congress now than ever before. (He didn’t mention that they’re Democrats.) Then they quickly sat down when he promised to build the wall. But back up when he announced plans for paid family leave. And back down again when he slammed late term abortion.

State of the Union

Nancy Pelosi seemed to conduct the State of the Union performance from her perch behind Trump. She showed boredom by reading from oversized sheets of paper while he spoke. And when he blasted political investigations she frowned at the back of his head. She also tamped down outbursts from the Democratic congresswomen. And when it was time to stand up and cheer she inscrutably clapped her hands like a seal.

Wall Fall

Pelosi’s a pro at politics. Trump, not so much. He ended the government shutdown for 3 weeks and got nothing in return but a promise to negotiate a wall Democrats don’t want and have no incentive to build. President Trump offered to take the blame for the shutdown and Nancy was glad to give it to him. Hard. His base is bummed.

“[Speaker Nancy] Pelosi ordered everything off the menu and left Trump hanging with the bill,” one Trump ally texted.
