Da ‘Toons Tell Da Story

Because we could all use a bit of comic relief right about now, I am re-blogging TokyoSand’s cartoon post for the week.  As always, she has sought and found the most relevant and overall best political cartoons from the past week, obviously most about the impeachment trial.  Thanks, TS!!!

Darkness

Today is a dark day in the United States.  Today, some 43 senators threw the first shovelful of dirt into the grave of the United States Constitution, of law and order, of justice for all.  These are the men and women who have the blood of this nation on their hands … these are the men and women who sold their conscience in exchange for future votes … these are the men and women who owe us all an explanation, an apology, and their resignations:

  1. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
  2. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.)
  3. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.)
  4. John Boozman (R-Ark.)
  5. Mike Braun (R-Ind.)
  6. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.)
  7. John Cornyn (R-Tex.)
  8. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)
  9. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.)
  10. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho)
  11. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.)
  12. Steve Daines (R-Mont.)
  13. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)
  14. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.)
  15. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.)
  16. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa)
  17. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.)
  18. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.)
  19. John Hoeven (R-N.D.)
  20. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.)
  21. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.)
  22. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.)
  23. John Neely Kennedy (R-La.)
  24. James Lankford (R-Okla.)
  25. Mike Lee (R-Utah)
  26. Cynthia M. Lummis (R-Wyo.)
  27. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.)
  28. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
  29. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.)
  30. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
  31. Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
  32. James E. Risch (R-Idaho)
  33. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.)
  34. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)
  35. Rick Scott (R-Fla.)
  36. Tim Scott (R-S.C.)
  37. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.)
  38. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska)
  39. John Thune (R-S.D.)
  40. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.)
  41. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.)
  42. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.)
  43. Todd C. Young (R-Ind.)

Remember these names, for they are responsible for what follows.  Seven Republicans actually found a bit of courage and voted to convict:

  1. Richard Burr (R-N.C.)
  2. Bill Cassidy (R-La.)
  3. Susan Collins (R-Maine)
  4. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)
  5. Mitt Romney (R-Utah)
  6. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.)
  7. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.)

I will write to these 7, thanking them for upholding their oaths of office and having the courage to do the right thing.
