A battered and cowardly group of Republicans are preparing themselves for next week's rumble in the Senate.
The opening bell...
House Speaker Pelosi informed her caucus it's time to send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate, where the fight to stop a corrupt commander-in-chief will be held.
Quick historical fact: boxing was once entirely controlled by mobsters in all the major cities. They picked the winners and losers.
To further this modern day analogy of Trump and cronies controlling nearly everything like the corrupt old days of boxing, the Senate match is being rigged.
Senate majority leader, aka Moscow Mitch, already informed us of that. He has no intention of this being a fair fight. In recent days he's been working out the details of the upcoming political rumble round-by-round with Trump.
This kind of collusion, where the referee is already in one fighter's corner, recalls the mobs complete control of every outcome to a prize fight.
The Republican Party has been reduced to a bunch of has-been fighter's who once cared about our republic and stood up for it.
The pathetic puppets among the GOP Senators have already chosen to turn a blind eye to justice out of fear of Trump the enforcer.
There has been a slight movement (conscience?) among some Republican senators like Susan Collins, to level the playing field by calling for witnesses.

Trump, who is well-grounded in mobster (mafia) tactics, believes he has the fight fixed, and who can blame him? He's ready to rumble to a preordained decision.
Right now, the Democrats look like Marlon Brando in The Waterfront, a movie about a slugger standing up to the mob. His famous line "I coulda been a contender" sums it all up.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
