I’ve been having the best time reading through all the angry, sputtering tweets from the ResistanceLOL over the Senate Republicans not wanting witnesses. Yup. The same folks who have been screaming helplessly at the sky since November 9, 2016 are cranking up the Outrage Machine once again.
And reading their tear-stained rage tweets has been all kinds of fun!
The same people who proclaimed our “democracy” was destroyed because of Net Neutrality, Tax Cuts, the travel ban, Stormy Daniels, Kavanaugh, and Mueller’s failure to perform are now cranking up the Outrage Machine while bemoaning the destruction of our “democracy.”
Yes sir. Our “democracy” is being destroyed by those evil Republicans who are engaging in a “cover-up” by not agreeing to salvage Adam Schiff’s disastrous Impeachment Porn.
And not just our DEMOCRACY!!! They are SHREDDING THE CONSTITUTION!!!!
Honestly, with the workout they’re giving it, this Outrage Machine is going to need some serious service and soon. Otherwise, when Trump wins a landslide victory in November, they’re going to have a tough time getting it started.
I really do marvel at the ResistanceLOL’s ability to keep itself in a constant state of high dudgeon.
How they can maintain this level of outrage year after year and not once take a moment to say, “You know, maybe I should gain some much-needed perspective” is a mystery to me.
Let me sum up the current Outrage Machine for you:
Okay, that’s not my summary. I just wanted to do an image of Adam Schiff as Greta.
Here we go:
Chuck Schumer is out there claiming that not calling brand new witnesses means “this country is headed toward the greatest cover-up since Watergate.”
Say, remember just three weeks ago when they told us this country is headed toward World War Three?
Yeah, whatever happened with that?
The over-the-top rhetoric might play well among the ResistanceLOL. But out here in the real world where nobody gives a tinker’s fart about this shampeachment, it’s easily dismissed as just more outrage from the perpetually outraged.
And while these breathless hysterics crank up the Outrage Machine to Spinal Tap 11, most of us are rolling our eyes and saying, “Sure, Jan.”
Because we’ve heard it all before.
When Hillary lost.
When Kavanaugh got confirmed.
When Mueller struck out.
When Trump took out Smolderimani.
The Outrage Machine never stops.
It’s like when I lived in an apartment in Chicago just a half block from the elevated train. The first few weeks, every time a train went by, the rattle and squeal drove me bats. But after a while, I didn’t even notice it anymore.
After three years of the Outrage Machine rattling and squealing and screaming at the sky, it’s pretty much white noise by now.
And because these guys do not have the self-control to offer reasonable, measured responses, the general response to their hair-on-fire well-I-nevering is laughter and mockery.
I’m especially enjoying reading through Kurt Schichter’s tweets today.
Let me “bottom line” this for you.
This changes nothing.
The people cranking up the Outrage Machine today were never going to vote for Trump or any other Republican.
And their shrieking and histrionics are not going to change anyone else’s mind.
Because we’ve seen this all before.
Trump is the same guy today that he was four years ago. He won anyway. None of this shit worked. I’m not sure I understand it either, but it happened. In real life. This is it. Raging about how unfair it is that you didn’t get what you wanted is not persuasive.— It’s still 2016 apparently (@jtLOL) January 31, 2020
Well, sure. There might be “backlash” next November. But not in the way the perpetually-outrage might imagine. And as far as “Americans’ innate sense of fairness” goes, I think the people who really did damage to that were Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, and the rest of the House Democrats.
Listen, there will be no “asterisk” next to Trump’s name.
This will not go down in history as the “greatest cover-up since Watergate.”
In fact, by spring, this shampeachment, like World War Three before it, will be all but forgotten.
And if anything is remembered about it, it’ll probably be this:
On a side note, and sticking with the Greta theme, I also did a ‘shop of Alexander Vindman as Greta … just because.
As as added bonus, and keeping with my Wizard of Oz-related comment about Jennifer Rubin from the other day, I did this:
Enjoy your weekend everyone! And enjoy the Super Bowl if that’s something you’re into.
