Pelosi lost. Really bad. The foundation cracked all around her.
Even as she overlooked the inconsequential status she has been trying pathetically to leverage when trying to stare down the United States Senate, Pelosi overlooked another even greater failure she charted.

It was very subtle. Few picked up on its deeper ramification, not in the Left media, not in the pro-Trump media. Maybe it took a combination rabbi–attorney to detect the nuance in three words spoken out of turn, a sinful hate. As Nancy Pelosi lost her standoff with Mitch McConnell, bowing to the collapse of support even within her own Democrat caucus, she finally bit the bullet and conceded that she would have to submit her impeachment articles without having won a single face-saving concession from her Senate opponents after a fortnight of dangling the articles in her hallucination that she was dangling candy before a child or water before a soul desperately thirsting for it in the desert.

No one really gave a hoot. Yes, we commentators commented. Cable television consumed hours daily debating it. But it did not matter a whit. The Pelosi Stillborn Impeachment already had been delivered as stillborn as a child of Catherine of Aragon. It had no life. The Constitution explicitly states that the only grounds for impeachment are bribery, treason, high crimes, or misdemeanors in the way the term was understood in 18th-century England. Even if the president had abused power, well — all presidents abuse power. That is what executives do. The historically and heroically significant John Adams had opponents labeled seditionists. Abraham Lincoln had journalists locked up. Woodrow Wilson, the progressive, imposed anti-Black racist rules and had journalists locked up and had opponents labeled seditionists and had kids tattling on their parents to the government. Obama had a phone and a pen. As for “obstructing Congress,” that is what we pay the president to do. It is called “checks and balances.” If Congress goes wild, the president needs to obstruct it. The House needs to obstruct a Senate gone wild, the Senate a House gone wild, the Courts a Congress or executive gone wild, and Congress and the president a judiciary gone wild.
