What part of “Leverage” do they not understand?

What part of “Leverage” do they not understand?

I don’t know how much more stupid a body can safely endure. But hopefully large doses of it are not fatal.  Because since the House voted on the two impeachment articles, we’ve been getting a heaping helping of stupid.

“Withholding the articles from the Senate gives Nancy Pelosi leverage,” these absolute clowns tell us.

And by “absolute clowns,” I mean people like, well, this guy:

What a clown.

When it comes to Michael Avenatti, I regret my personal vow to never use the word “retarded” as an insult.

What part of the word “leverage” do these nitwits not understand?

In order to get leverage over someone, you have to have something they want.

This is leverage:

I have something you want.
You have something I want.

This is not leverage:

I have something you don’t give a rip about.
You have something I want.

Even Nancy Pelosi is jumping on the “Oooh, do I have some great leverage” bandwagon.

If Nancy really believes she has Mitch McConnell right where she wants him, she really has gone around the bend.

The fact is, the House and the Senate are completely separate and autonomous.  Mitch McConnell cannot order Nancy Pelosi to run the House the way he wants.   And likewise, Nancy cannot demand Mitch McConnell run the Senate the way she wants.

And all her posturing and preening might make the news media quiver with orgasmic delight.  But at the end of the day, she has no actual power here.

Now, if she had leverage she could make up for that lack of power.  But the problem is she has no leverage because she has nothing McConnell wants.

Do these morons really think Mitch McConnell is quietly weeping into his coffee over Nancy’s boneheaded maneuver?

I watched his interview on Fox today, and it’s clear Mitch finds this whole silly charade amusing.

And yet nitwits like Avenatti and Nancy herself think they’ve got McConnell over a barrel.

These guys can’t be that stupid, can they?

Okay, Michael Avenatti is.

Now, it could be, as I’ve said before, that Nancy is completely clueless and as a result is letting big decisions get made by people who really shouldn’t be permitted to make decisions.

But you’d think Nancy is politically savvy enough to know that the longer impeachment stays in the news, the worse her party’s chances get.

Americans are tired of this partisan garbage.  And Nancy holding on to these articles only keeps impeachment in the forefront of the news.  And that is not a good thing for the Democrats leading in to 2020.

You’d think Nancy would want a swift resolution to this before it drags into the election season if for no other reason than to bank on the short term memory of voters.

Her hairbrained attempt at leverage could leverage her right out of the Speaker’s office.

Which is just what this idiot deserves.

By the way, Mark Levin had Ken Starr on Life, Liberty and Levin last night.  I watched the first segment at Fox News, and it’s well worth seeing if you haven’t yet.  Watch it HERE.

    I think Nan knows RGB is on her last legs and was trying to hold up the Senate from another SC appointment. No other business can be completed by the Senate during impeachment trials, but just yesterday we learned, if true, the SC just screwed over that plan.

    Also, here’s a funny stolen from OldNFO in case you don’t follow him:

    A few days before Christmas, a man enters a pet store looking for a unique gift for his wife. The store manager tells him he has just what he’s looking for! A beautiful parrot named Chet that sings Christmas carols.

    He brings the husband over to a colorful but quiet bird. The man agrees that Chet certainly is pretty, but he doesn’t seem to be much for singing.

    The manager tells him to watch as he reaches into his pocket and pulls out a lighter. The manager then clicks the lighter and holds it under Chet’s left foot. Immediately Chet starts singing; “Silent Night, Holy Night.” The husband is very impressed with Chet’s singing abilities and watches as the manager moves the lighter underneath Chet’s right foot. Chet now starts to sing “Jingle Bells, Jingle All the Way.” The husband says Chet is perfect and that he’ll take him.

    The husband rushes home to his wife and insists upon giving her this wonderful gift immediately. He presents Chet and starts to explain the parrot’s special talent.

    Demonstrating, he holds a lighter under Chet’s left foot and the bird sings “Silent Night.” He then moves the lighter under the right foot and Chet lets loose a round of “Jingle Bells.”

    The wife is absolutely impressed, and with a mischievous grin asks her husband what happens if he holds the lighter between Chet’s legs instead.

    Curious the husband moves the lighter between the bird’s legs, and the bird begins to sing– “Chet’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire!”

    I think you had it right with the pice abot “Is Nancy providing time to influence the jury? ” There are already too many things like “suddenly released emails” that make this scenario more likely. I think the move to impeach was stupid but Pelosi knows that, given time (like until congress reconvenes), to find something else…ANYthing else…to make this impeachment work!
