They won't get 17 Republicon senators to vote to convict.

That's a really heavy lift, and y'all, let's get real, it ain't gonna happen. However, here is what I'm hoping for. I'm hoping the House impeachment managers will make a really compelling case, such a powerful case that it will be really difficult for those Republicon senators to justify their votes for acquittal. They'll do it anyway, of course. They'll make all kinds of excuses and rationalizations and twist themselves into every imaginable logical pretzel, but they'll do it, and that's what I want them to HAVE to do. I want the House managers to make such a compelling case that the Republicon senators will not be able to justify their votes to acquit. And then, I want those impossible-to-justify votes to come back to haunt them.

Wait until the defense presents video of the current vp encouraging antifa and blm riots to continue.   Or mad auntie maxine telling her followers to get up in the face of members of President Trump's administration,  or the current occupant of the white house stating how he wants to take a sitting President outside and punch him...

You ****ers want to make history, but the world will see your double standards and how petty and childish you are and how your leaders are guilty of what you accuse President Trump of.
Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

It's not republicans who are rationalizing and twisting themselves into logical pretzels. The articles of impeachment allege that Trump's words were "calculated" to cause violence. Good luck proving that!

Of course, the dems' case might actually seem superficially compelling, because they are masters of sophistry and and specious logic.

Unless the Dem Shampeachment KangaChair totally silences and suppresses Trump's defense your hope will be shattered and ground into powder. :-)

You're absolutely correct Beeno. Your shampeachment isn't going anywhere. The failings of the democraps to accomplish anything
is obvious.  Now put away the dice and  board games then run along
outside to play in the traffic.
Then-Chief Justice John Marshall observed, “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

John Adams warned in a letter, “Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”

After 4 years of childish BS from the left in Washington DC, I'm the last person you would want to ask to be the grown-up in the room.  If I was Mitch O'Connell this week I would instruct Republican Senators to let the pro-conviction vote count get up to about 64 or 65 and then have the very last Republican called, vote to acquit. They would have to keep a very careful eye for turncoats, but it would be fun because they call them in alphabetical order.  I can just here it now . The vote is 65 yeas, 35 nays. "Senator Young IN, how do you vote?"   "Representing the great people of Indiana this Senator will vote Nay"  Chuckie Schumer was so close to getting incited again.
