All day long, the grinning Sondland played Roadrunner to Adam Schiffs Wiley E. Coyote, as he slowed and pulled up to offer up Trump only to scoot away in a puff of dust as soon as Schiff tried to wrap his hands around him.
What we are left with so far are two inconvenient truths that wont go away.
One, Trump sent lethal military aid to Ukraine and never fired any prosecutor; the Obama administration, led by Joe Biden, got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired and forbade sending lethal aid to the Ukrainians. Those facts eroded any argument that Trump endangered the Ukrainians in a way Obama had not.
In that regard, Trump did not smear Joe Biden; Joe Biden smeared Joe Biden when he bragged in front of the Council on Foreign Relations that, as tough-guy Joe, he quashed Ukrainian investigations by leveraging U.S. aid with the sort of language that Schiff could only have hoped Trump had used:
I said, Im telling you, youre not getting the billion dollars. I said, youre not getting the billion. Im going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said, Im leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, youre not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.
It was unlikely that too many Americans watched some ten hours of the impeachment inquiry, went to dinner, and then ran back to the TV for two more hours of the Democratic debate. And if they did, they certainly did not hear the 2018 winning midterm messages of moderation, practical solutions, and blue-collar pragmatism, but instead more wealth taxes, Trump is an ogre, Medicare for All, and a nocturnal replay of the daylong sanctimonious petulance.

I tried to watch this morning but as that guy started talking my stomach turned and I was so disgusted that a little weasel like him is anywhere near the Capitol. He even looks sleazy.
You forgot the most Important thing that we learned:
The ENTIRE Democrat caucus in the House and the entire “mainstream media” have Publicly Declared that JOE BIDEN and BARACK OBAMA EXTORTED , BRIBED and BLACKMAILED UKRAINE for PERSONAL or POLITICAL GAIN.!!!
Why aren’t they ALL in PRISON????
This cracked me up. It is SO TRUE!
Sondland, like most major ambassadors, should be an expert in quid pro quos, given that it is a hallowed and bipartisan American tradition to sell off the most prestigious European ambassadorial slots to the most generous campaign donors.
Did anyone else notice the big wad of paper Nunes just plopped in front of Schiff regarding the investigation into “Russian Active Measures”? Well I for one am glad the democrats finally see, after 60 years, how the Russians/Soviets were and still are a threat to our way of life. They need to stop lying about involving Trump with that problem though. Perhaps that is projection.
Yuri Bezmenov also used the term “Active Measures”....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bX3EZCVj2XA
"While these mice scurry about chasing bits of stale cheese, hawks such as Horowitz and Durham circle above with possible referrals and indictments as the accusers may soon be the accused."That perfect metaphor of itty-bitty, pesky, non-consequential mice chasing stale cheese precisely sums it up. We're left with nothing but little annoying mouse turds all over the place.
hawks such as Horowitz and Durham
Somehow I dont think Horowitz is a hawk. Durham maybe. We shall see soon l hope.
But so far, the soap opera is sheer boredom, Schiff playing the insufferable windbag
I don’t see how the democrats get out of this mess they’ve created.
Impeaching Trump, and giving the right to make the rules to the Republicans, with this weakest of the weak cases, is the worst thing they can do.
Yep, it’s like he was sent from “Central Casting” to be a character actor in this charade. He plays the role of the insufferable idiot very well.
He is like a character out of Atlas Shrugged.
“[Schiff] is like a character out of Atlas Shrugged.”
The whole country is Atlas Shrugged in every aspect. I don’t see any cure for it. Only Jesus.
You think the complete impeachment inquiry hearings are awful? ....
Just wait till House Representatives VOTE on these Deep State careerists’ “I assumed”, “My presumption is...”, “Consensus policies by interagencies” etc. etc.
Straight down party line, and makes it an even bigger circus clown show than ever.
