Day One Senate Trial: Republicans Are Taking a Misguided Leap of Faith


                                       Good Day World!

A Pennsylvania woman was out driving around the other day looking for something to test her faith.

She told the cops who later arrested her that God said she should "Drive through another vehicle," so she turned her 2017 KIA Optima into the opposing lane of traffic.

Fortunately, no one was killed, but two of the people who were in the car she ran into were hospitalized. The woman, Nadejda Reilly, was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and harassment along with several vehicle charges related to the crash.

Her leap of faith endangered others. Afterward, she showed no remorse for the injured who she said God would take care of.

Meanwhile...

Senate Republicans are also taking a "yuge" leap of faith to back Trump during his impeachment trial. 

They know Trump is guilty as hell for abusing his power and obstructing Congress. They know he's a chronic liar.

They know there's no evidence to back Trump's claim of searching for corruption in the Ukraine. They know he wanted the new president to dig up dirt on his political rival Joe Biden.

The know there's ample evidence to back that charge up. There's also open evidence Mitch McConnell is making sure it's not going to be a fair trial.

The public won't know for sure until the trial is underway and McConnell's game plan is unveiled today.

Those GOP senators who choose to ignore the evidence and take a leap of misguided faith by not convicting Trump of his crimes, will have to answer to their constituents, and their own conscience.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
