    Raking leaves... cutting plastic to put over exterior insulation of a cellar window in the walk-in coldframe... deciding if I want to use these colors in a mug-mat to get me through no-daylight-savings time looming in on us too soon... thinking to look up again what it was 538 said about Emerson polls...

    Then they amend the articles of impeachment substituting his name for hers...

    You cry for a few days, we boast for a couple days, and then we all go back to work and our everyday lives the next day.

    Either way we're probably going to end up with a President who winds up on trial.

    And then his lawyers fight to postpone the trial until after he's served his term just like Bill Clinton's lawyers did.
    :D

    I think that might be a false narrative.

    1. The Democratic Party
    2. The Republican Party
    3. The media
    4. The stupid voters

    I place these in no particular order (before someone gets their twat in a twist).

    Why would it?
    Opposite to many countries, many times we hold officials to some sort of accountability.

    In the eyes of the jealous and envious, yes, we are the laughing stock.

    Depends on whether the charges are coming from the federal government or a state. If it's the Feds than yes he can pardon himself but that wouldn't stop impeachment proceedings. You can't indict a sitting president anyway so you'd have to impeach first either way.

    In theory that's what happens every time we have a power transition in the USA. I hope that holds true this time regardless of who wins the White House in 2016. There's been a lot of ill feeling stirred up in the past year during these too-long campaigns.

    It would have been nice to have seen political leaders making more of a joint effort to indicate disapproval of some of the excessive rancor, but... it's not like we could have expected much along that line from the current leadership of either major party. The Dems were obsessed by elevation of Clinton ever since 2008 and the Republicans were already torn asunder before Trump showed up, with all the attendant ill feeling amongst them and from their respective constituencies. It was never going to be a genteel campaign.

    There were a few decent gestures from Senators and members of the House from both major parties, don't get me wrong, but many more of their peers and other party officials (and elected down ballot officials as well) were right in there with the guttersnipes among potential voters on either side of the aisle.

    It's hard to say who's reflecting whose basic lack of decency when you think about it. We the voters, the people we end up electing or the appointees of the elected officials.

    Wow I'm surprised by the reactions.

    How can you guys accept a Hillary loss so calmly and dignified?

    If Trump lost I wouldn't/couldn't have accepted it.
