Tom Cotton for VP?

Joel and I disagree about this, but I still think Trump will last like a week and a half before impeachment proceedings start -- I mean, as he says, he's gotta be himself.

I could be wrong, but if I'm right about that, his VP choice is especially important. Today he's talking Tom Cotton. Opinion of the Hall?

Or maybe Trump will say this to the impeacher's

"It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,

which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?

Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God's help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!"

I don't think the President has the power to dissolve Congress. :)

I don't think the Congress will have the votes to impeach, much less to convict.

It's a gamble. But they'll have all the D votes -- you know they will -- and as many R votes as hate him and are embarrassed by him. I would guess that's enough.

I've heard Tom Co several times on the Hugh Hewitt show, and I think he's great. Conservative, a veteran who understands the military. Surely he could do much worse.

I don't understand where this 'impeach Trump' stuff is coming from. Impeach him for what? Getting elected?

Those "R's" you're referring to are elected by the same people that would have elected Trump.

They're not going to impeach him.

Grim said...

Maybe not. What I think he'll be impeached for isn't being elected, though, but for something like issuing illegal orders ("kill the families of terrorists") or something similar. I don't think he's going to fail to provide opportunities to impeach him.

I don't think Clinton would, either. But she's not getting impeached, not if she kills the families of terrorists personally on the White House lawn. Or perfectly innocent kittens, for that matter. Maybe not even infant US citizens.

E Hines said...

But they'll have all the D votes -- you know they will

No, I don't know that. It would set too ugly a precedent for a Democratic President. And too many Rs know better, too. There might be 50 votes to impeach, and were there 218, not over 2 votes to convict.

Well, she's already completely severed the bloodlines of four US citizens.

The Senate and Congress are controlled by the Leftist alliance via blackmail lists and leverages. Until those are removed, people in DC do not vote the way normal people outside DC would expect them to vote. It's sort of like Roberts and Petraeus. The Left has something over them, or had, as the case may be.
