One-Liner Wednesday — Impeachable Offenses

“President Trump committed impeachable offenses and I’m pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him.”

Mitch McConnell, United States Senate Majority Leader

That’s right, Mitch McConnell (aka The Grim Reaper, aka Moscow Mitch) has finally found his balls and has publicly split with with Donald Trump after four years of having his lips firmly planted on Trump’s butt.

Well, Mitch, all I can say is way too little and way, way too late.

One-Liner Wednesday

“When we’re done with you, you’ll be able to stand up and slaughter your enemies like civilized men.”

Actor Sean Connery in a scene from the movie “The Man Who Would be King.”

Sean Connery was one of my favorite actors and “The Man Who Would Be King,” starring Connery, Michael Caine, and Christopher Plummer, is one of my favorite Sean Connery movies.The movie is an adaptation of the famous short story by Rudyard Kipling that tells the story of Daniel Dravot (Connery) and Danny “Peachy” Carnahan (Caine), two ex-soldiers in India when it was under British rule. They decide to seek their fame and fortune by heading off to Kafiristan in order to become kings in their own right. Kipling (Plummer) is seen as a character that was there at the beginning and at the end of this fascinating tale.

I just happened to watch it again this weekend and it is just as entertaining as ever. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.

One-Liner Wednesday — Throwing in the Towel

“There comes a time when you have to realize that, despite your best efforts, you’ve been unsuccessful.”

Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn

As Donald Trump still desperately battles to attempt to overturn his presidential election loss to Joe Biden and to stay in power, even some of his staunches GOP allies are admitting that it’s time for Trump to throw in the towel and accept his defeat.

Of course, he’s Donald Trump, so he won’t.

One-Liner Wednesday — Under the Spotlight

“The president’s recent discussions with those around him reveal that he sees his White House comeback deliberations as a way to earn the commodity he needs most after leaving office: attention.”

Anita Kumar, Politico White House correspondent and associate editor

The good news is that, despite his need to stay in the limelight, Trump will ultimately wilt under the truth, scrutiny, and heat of the spotlight and will finally melt away.
