Wile E. Coyote

The Wile E. Cayote of the U.S. House of Reps, Adam Schiff, has enlisted a motley crew of helpers to try to catch the Road Runner, Donald Trump. Among the players in the motley crew are Nancy Pelosi, who has been dragged kicking and screaming into an impeachment vote that I suspect she knows (deep down) will not end well, and Gerald Nadler, who plays the role of the large boulder that Wile E continually tries to drop on the Road Rummer. Among other members of the motley crew are a brain trust that includes Democrat congress men and women (Richard Blumenthal and Maxine Waters come to mind) who have howled for Trump's impeachment since before he was inaugurated.

Wile E. thinks that by lying about "bribery" and/or "quid pro quo" that resulted in aid that was never given to the Ukraine (oh, wait, the aid was given to the Ukraine) for an investigation of the corrupt Biden father and son (oh, wait, the investigation never happened). Wile E., along with other members of the motley crew, keep telling us with a degree of solemnity that is laughable that they are doing this to "save our democracy" and "protect our constitution." If you didn't know it was actually happening, you'd think this was all a political parody.

Picture it, Wile E. sitting bug-eyed in the desert with a pencil and a large ream of paper, using a boulder (Nadler?) as his desk. Scribbling a report that is evidence-free and innuendo-rich, he keeps breaking the point of his pencil as he scribbles, grabbing at sheets of paper that keep blowing around him. Meanwhile, the road runner goes "bleep, bleep" on Twitter.

I suspect that at this point, with the notable exception of the progressive wing of the Democratic party, their trained hamsters in the media and a few other members of the the GOP and deep state, the American public takes this impeachment travesty no more seriously that they take a Road Runner cartoon.
