Indianapolis - Circa January 2019: Indiana State House of Representatives in session giving the Pledge of Allegiance II

Have you ever watched one of those trained attack dogs lock onto its target… they just won’t let go. Well, despite this now being a dead and nearly forgotten issue, one story said that the Democrats are, “…doubling down on stupid.”

The Merriam-webster dictionary defines stupid as:
1a: slow of mind: OBTUSE
b: given to unintelligent decisions or acts: acting in an unintelligent or careless manner
c: lacking intelligence or reason

Nobody is calling the Democrats stupid but we will let the facts speak for themselves. Like the fact that the Democratic party has taken three shots at voting for impeachment, only to be handily defeated. Every single time. The last embarrassment ended in a 332 to 95 vote against impeachment. Many of us, yours truly included, assumed that this would be the last of the impeachment talks but the Democrats, like that attack dog, have locked in. So instead of letting it go after nearly three years and an exhaustive investigation (more on that in a moment), they started clamoring about how the Mueller testimony would be the key.

Democrats from all corners started rattling on and on about how this hearing and his testimony would reveal the real Donald Trump. Fact, it didn’t and unfortunately for anyone who attended or followed it, it was only more of the same. Now, about that exhaustive investigation. Yes, it is a fact that this investigation was exhaustive and thorough. Yes, it was a two-year-long investigation. What really makes this damning for the Democrats, was that the investigation was also led by not one but many anti-Trump Democrats. Of course, that pretty much includes the whole lot of them. Yet still, after all that searching, hunting and digging, all the Democrats managed to do was dig themselves into a bigger hole.

It would be admirable, even impressive if their exceptional diligence and dedicated efforts weren’t so – futile? Now, after all that, there is almost unbelievably another stir among the Democrats whispering for impeachment. Even more incredulously this noise is being drummed up by poll results. Yes, those types of polls, the ones where they take peoples opinions!

No, this isn’t based on crimes, incompetence or bad behavior, simply poll results. If that wasn’t enough, consider the fact that these polls the Democrats are touting have some questionable data, namely in the survey selections and party affiliations. It also hints of bias too, that some of these polls come from sources like Fox News, no agenda there!

Our aforementioned story also went so far as to call these impeachment polls “phony” and even titled the article, “Dems Rely on Phony Impeachment Polling.” One last fact to chew on, names like Stormy, Avenatti, Rapinoe, Omarosa,  Nadler, Schiff and many other prominent figures have tried and failed at the impeachment roulette wheel.

That story also reminded us, that while this three-year witch hunt has ensued, there is still a country that needs to be led. There are issues that need to be dealt with and there are jobs to do. Those jobs aren’t getting done by spending countless hours chasing ghosts or by grandstanding in a courtroom. None of us, at least those of us who don’t live in the past, want to hear, see or know anything more about this topic. It would be nice if we could report that the efforts to impeach and the case against the President is closed, but remember, attack dogs.

If the Democrats are looking for some good news or a silver lining to all of this, it may come in about five years or so.  Maybe then, when President Trump has finished his second term in office and impeachment is no longer a card on the table, it will stop being played. Until then, it might just be best to pass, fold or walk away from the table altogether. That is unless you have a gambling problem because the odds on winning are somewhere between zero and none. Imagine if you were to win that pot? What if you doubled down on that bet? Heck, that would either make you rich and lucky or leave you broke and… not so smart?

However you cut the cards, facts don’t lie.
