oh don’t i wish i could draw! The cartoon I would draw shows Nancy Pelosi at a podium, grave-faced and flanked by a thin line of equally somber House colleagues, plus Chuck Schumer from across the hall, who all look like she’s about to announce a death. And she does, sorta, talking about the “sad day” when the House moves into a formal impeachment investigation for real. Didn’t wanna hafta… But given this Ukraine thing…Trump and Ukraine…
Hand this man a writing Emmy! Yeah, we know it’s not the Nobel you wanted, but hey, please accept it anyway as a small token of our gobsmackedness.
Her audience nods gravely. They’re all trying to ignore the bumptious din that is building off stage. The camera backs up and backs up until we see, just beyond the thin line of somber lawmakers nodding with their eyes downcast, another group of lawmakers, who are gleefully cavorting. Some link arms and swing their partners; others doh-see-doh like straight-kneed Cossacks; still others crowd together in front of TVs to watch C-SPAN, and still more high-five each other, waving party favors and open champagne bottles as confetti filters down from the rafters like snowflakes on Christmas Eve.
That was the big story of Wednesday, and now it’s Friday, and it could shape up to be the Big News of the Week, except: this is the Trump Administration — so: a surprise a minute! Never unbuckle your seat belt until the captain has arrived at the gate and turned off the seat belt sign.
In truth we have no confident idea what will happen next! AND, we are just dying to find out!!! So hand this man a writing Emmy! Yeah, we know it’s not the Nobel you wanted, but hey, please accept it anyway as a small token of our gobsmack
édness. Amazeballs, Mr. President. Really. Great story, sir. GREAT story! Can I help you pack?
