Even asking what the camo color scheme was supposed to invoke.



It might just end up being a “Show Trial”, but I think both we as a people, and history, would benefit from the show. I know I would.
Yup

This is... not that.

They complained that the impeachment was flawed because there had been no trial. I'm sorry none of the Dems bothered to point out that impeachment was the step taken so that there could be a trial.
Exactly
