The Morning Briefing: Impeachment and a House Divided Perhaps Forever
If, as the great Abraham Lincoln once said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand," then the American experiment may well and truly be hosed.
The House finally got around to making the latest witch hunt formal, voting mostly along party lines to move the impeachment inquiry forward.
I use to be one of those "Hey, we survived the Civil War, we'll get through this" optimists when it came to America's future. This past year may not have killed that optimism, but it has worn it down a bit.
There isn't an adult of sound mind in this country who sees all of this playing out in a way that sees a bunch of Republicans finally deciding that the president needs to go or the Democrats finally admitting defeat in their attempts to prematurely oust him.
Face it, we don't like each other much anymore, the Right and Left in America. We've been heading toward this for a while. I blame Hillary Clinton, partially because she's so adept at being unlikeable, but mostly because I believe she is more than likely Satan's latest incarnation on Earth.
Just my opinion.
Granny Maojackets has spent the last three years fortifying herself with boxes of Franzia and remaining in the public eye to make sure Democrats continue to believe that the result of the 2016 election was illegitimate.
Her flying monkeys in the mainstream media have made sure that the message keeps buzzing in the air.
They are all responsible for creating this permanently dysfunctional family atmosphere in the U.S. and Thanksgiving dinners will never be the same again.
The Democrats could remove Trump from office tomorrow and they wouldn't be happy. Liberals are never happy.
They could take the White House back next year and not be satisfied because see above.
Here on the Right, we've all been called violent Nazis one too many times to just want to make nice with our accusers.
It's a mess, people.
Next year's election was going to be more contentious than usual anyway. Now, this impeachment drama will add an extra helping of dislike on each side just to turn the emo dial up to 11.
Perhaps the best way to navigate these turbulent waters is to greatly modify expectations, which is a coping mechanism I've found to be most useful as I've gotten older. Rather than hope I can get along with a lot of liberals I'll just take it on a case-by-case basis and hope I can find a few who don't irritate me too much.
Starting with the ones who like whiskey.

This Halloween I decided to dress up as the thing that scares me most, the Democratic Dimwit Darling herself. I'm not afraid of ghouls, ghosts, zombies or political incorrectness. I am far more terrified AOC was actually elected to the United States Congress. Talk about a haunted House... #TeamTomi #halloween #AOC #SocialismKills

TGIF. We're doomed but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it.
