    That, but also, the dissonance between conservative/liberal/whatever isn't as stark as north/south, so when you see the 60 vs 30 majority, they all live amongst each other. The ideological divide is not represented geographically.

    I currently live in one of the most liberal states in the country, but I've been mindful not to go outside as much over this pandemic because my neighborhood has a lot of Trump supporters and anti-mask stories to the level that we're above the average relative to the state in terms of cases/deaths. When I watch Hulu or something, I get targeted advertising based on my area calling out my town reminding us to wear a mask because our cases are out of control. :laugh: :(

    But juxtapose that to my district electing a very liberal congresswoman - the first to call for Trump's impeachment after the insurrection.

    Just watching the House of Representatives vote on the Trump impeachment.
    Is this just a vote to get the impeachment to the next stage?

    Another Republican will vote for impeachment.

    "Your honour, my client may or may not have committed all of the murders... but those other people did bad stuff too! Also he has terminal cancer and only has days to live so why, i humbly ask, are you insisting on charging my client with this crime?"

    A shame that even if the vote goes the way of starting impeachment tonight, it's unlikely to pass the senate even when it gets there given that 17 republicans would need to vote for it, and that's assuming every democrat did. Only 7 republicans have so far indicated they would. I can't see them hitting the required amount.

    Still, even if the impeachment fails, the last week has surely guaranteed the guy has no chance of being put forward as the party candidate in 2024, even if he had the gall to run.

    Déjà vu all over again. It's been a beautiful 2nd impeachment, some are saying it's the most beautiful impeachment ever. Almost a shame we can't have a Twitter meltdown from the opoplectic orange manbaby in response.

    I get the feeling this will be a 50/50 in the Senate though (unless it is still weighed 48/52 until the 20th there). I think you might get 1 or 2 of the older guys like Mitt who vote to impeach, but the rest of them are either sucking Trumps wotsit coated nuts (Marty can use Cheetos instead) or are too scared of the backlash or too partisan to do anything about it.

    Heard stories that Mitch is very happy the Dems brought about a 2nd impeachment because it will help get rid of Trump, but everyone knows he isn't going to have the first President get fully impeached happen on his watch for his party. Maybe if Trump was a Democrat.

    I imagine more Republicans will turn on Trump after Biden has taken over, because Trump will no longer have the power to fire them. Hopefully then, the trial should go through with less resistance.

    Not that he'll care, mind you. He's still never done anything wrong, in fact some might say he's been the best never-wrong-doer there has ever been, beautiful even.

    Personally I think the GOP should exploit the conspiracy nuts by assassinating trump in about 3 months time and blaming biden.

    It'd be a great sequel movie.

    This is all made up right? I mean the contents of this thread could NEVER happen in real life.
