The Kobayashi Maru, Part Infinity

The no-win scenario is posed by Tiger Beat on the Potomat (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie:

Politically, if you’re a Republican, can you vote for witnesses — and if witnesses fail, can you then vote to acquit? There are two schools of thinking on this: Yes: If you vote for witnesses, and they fail, you can vote to acquit because you can say, “I tried to get more information. The Senate said no, so I had to make a decision based on what we had.” No: How can you believe you need more information and then vote to acquit?

So, the safest route is to avoid it and not vote for witnesses.

In other words, if amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch’s cover-up succeeds, the fight won’t end so much as shift to the 2020 election.

    I’m stuck on “How can you believe you need more information…”. Which is why I’m not political. The calculations are so illogical.

    The fight won’t shift to the election in November, the fight will be over. When the Senate votes to acquit Trump it will be the modern equivalent of the 1933 Enabling Act; the last moment when the regime felt any obligation to maintain a pretence that it was conforming to the rule of law.
    After this, as Pelosi said, there will be no possibility of impeaching Trump again, nor will there be any other restriction on executive power; Trump will defy Congress with impunity.
    As to the November election, with the power of incumbency, Fox News and the other ‘Conservative’ (Reactionary) networks, Facebook’s obvious bias, the certainty of Trump and the GOP ‘ratfucking’ the electoral role and intimidating minority voters, to say nothing of putin’s support, there is little chance that any of the mediocre Democratic candidates pose a real challenge to the Trump.
