re: #48 Jay C

Yep: let me edit/repost a comment I made at another blog:

But as eloquent as the House Managers may be, it wouldn’t make a difference if the House had Daniel Webster as lead: the “trial” IS rigged, and the “verdict” is a foregone conclusion. And public opinion is an irrelevancy. The Senate Republicans, during this impeachment trial, remind me of nothing so much as one of those smirking all-white juries in the Jim Crow South hearing a case with a black plaintiff and white defendant (or vice versa): they don’t really care about the facts, their decision will be based primarily on their prejudices, and their main concerns are first, getting home in time for dinner; and secondly, annoyance at having to “hear” a case they never wanted to deal with in the first place (“Justice” of course, having little or nothing to do with any of their considerations).

We’re the jury too. They’re making the case for November.
