Here's a must read article about the UK election: The fall of Labour’s ‘Red Wall’ is a moment to celebrate. The reason this is so great is because of the parallels to the US and Trump. Read it with that in mind and you'll be amazed.
And here's a political must view, below--Mitch McConnell talking Impeachment Theater. Here's what's notable in it from my perspective:
1. No mention of doing a deal with Dems on Senate rules. Quite the contrary. Mitch's mantra is--whatever the President and his lawyers want we'll do. Dismissal? You've got it! Full trial? You've got it! Take that, Chuck! Dems have screwed the country around for three years and more and they expect Mitch to cut them some slack now? Nope.
2. McConnell expects full unity among the GOP, and thinks he may pick up a couple of Dems. Coupled with Dem defections in the House--big.
3. McConnell was given the chance to talk up his new memoirs. He took the opportunity to tout his shepherding of judicial appointments and specifically touted stiffing Obama and the Dems on their hoped for SCOTUS pick, Garland. Wormwood for Dems, but you know that will be the GOP Senatorial talking point for 2020.
4. The House needs to get something done to show they didn't run a clueless, anti-constitutional, do-nothing Congress for 2 years. Guess what? Trump and the Senate have more than enough accomplishments to run a kick ass campaign. They'll be in no hurry to do Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff any favors in 2020.
