Holy Crap! It's Monday... well, it is for me and I've got to work for 5 days in a row. Every time I have one of these 4 day mini-vacas I realize how much I hate going back to work full time. And I will have to deal with this crap for at least a year yet. Once my car is paid off, who knows what will happen.
The Idiot Jerk in the White House gave his State of the Union speech last evening. The MAGA heads went wild. Some Republican lawmakers chanted 4 more years. In case you didn't know, they are all about a white GOP dictatorship. And the Idiot Jerk, he knows exactly who is base voters are and he played directly to them.
Oh, and about that impeachment.... I don't know if any of you have seen the Idiot Jerk's approval rating, but it has gone up... to 49% More Independent voters jumped on board his evil train. Why? Well guess. A word to all of the firebrand Democratic freshman of the House, this is what happens let your anger run rampant. The articles of impeachment were dead on arrival at the Republican held Senate. I mean, did these firebrand freshmen really believe the Republican held Senate was going to shoot itself in the head? No matter how powerful Adam Schiff's closing argument was, Independent voters did not see Crimes and Misdemeanors. They saw a stupid old man doing something he should have been punished for, but they didn't think he should be fired. The same thing happened at the Clinton impeachment. The only better about this impeachment was that the Idiot Jerk's approval rating only hit 49%, Clinton's went up to 55%. For those who don't remember, Bill Clinton was re-elected and the failed impeachment proceedings had a lot to do with that.
On the bright side, and I know many who are smiling broadly about this.... Pete Buttigieg won in Iowa.
This is evidently a hit to Bernie's campaign. Bernie needs to deal with it. He has to understand that in the scheme of things, no one really wants to be a Socialist. Poor Uncle Joe Biden fared very poorly. This is how life is. An interesting point, I had breakfast with my brother yesterday and he, who loves his Christian Conservatives, brought up Buttigieg. He said he thought Pete might have a real chance at winning, He said he could 'get out the young vote.' You have to remember, one of the things Buttigieg touts are his Christian beliefs. That's important, he might be gay, but he isn't a scumbag. We will have to wait and see how well he does in New Hampshire.
