That Did Not End Well for the Rudderless Republicans

Rudderless Republicans

In the old Perry Mason show, the D.A. Hamilton Burger often has courtroom scenes that devolved into complete fiascos, but probably nothing like this:

Gym Jordan: “So your boss had concerns about your judgment. Your former boss, Dr. [Fiona] Hill, had concerns about your judgment. Your colleagues had concerns about your judgment. And your colleagues felt that there were times when you leaked information. Any idea why they have those impressions, Colonel Vindman?”

Not that you have to be Kreskin to surmise this line of attack from a C- student of strategy, but Lt. Col. Vindman absolutely was prepared, calmly picked up his performance review written by Dr. Fiona Hill, and read:

 “Alex is a top 1% military officer and the best Army officer I have worked with in my 15 years of government service. He is brilliant, unflappable, and exercises excellent judgment…Exemplary during numerous visits…I think you get the idea.”

And right about then, I think you can see Gym Jordan’s life flash before his eyes. Or maybe  what flashed before his eyes was his own performance appraisals from the University of Ohio where he is credibly involved in a sex abuse scandal from his days there as a wrestling coach.

Jordan is a dope to not have read the reviews himself before starting such a dumb line of attack. It’s a miracle that Jordan can dress himself in the morning.

Oh. Wait.

  1. Did Gym “hey what’s a little sexual assault among wrestlers” Jordan deign to provide any documentation of his innuendo? or it it pulled out of their collected asses, as usual?

    Like so many of the Republicans, Gym Jordan believes he can bluster and bully those who are there to give their testimony. It’s his schtick and it doesn’t matter to him that he sucks so hard at it. He’s the leader of the Tea Party in Trump’s Ass, so he thinks he’s scoring big with his idol.

    But he is simply a giant failure.

  3. As a proud Michigan fan and parent, let me happily offer this correction — Gym coached at Ohio Goddamn State University (also referred to simply as “Ohio”).

    Which pundit will be the first to explain how this is proof of division within the ranks of the Democrats?

    Oh, where is Billo now that we need him?

    Thankfully they drafted this doorknob into the INTELLIGENCE Committee specifically. Otherwise, boy, I just don’t know if these impeachment hearings would be going so well (for John McCain??)

    This is not a fiasco. The right wing media will play Jordan’s remarks as a brilliant destruction of Vindman, and never show one word of the reply, so the purpose will be served.
