Haunted House of Representatives

On this Halloween, with Mounds of witness testimony Whoppers already corroborating a political crime Spree, the House voted to formalize the impeachment process. As America hits another Sour Patch, the vote, split by party line, “underscored how — for now — lawmakers on each side are comfortable with their approaches to next year’s presidential and congressional elections.” Dems are convinced that Pelosi and Schiff are the Smarties who can connect the Dots between the Good ‘n Plenty of facts, while the GOP is positioning their opponents as Dum Dum Airheads, convinced that, even with the growing Gushers of evidence, they can still be their Sugar Daddy’s Life Savers. Confused by this everlasting Gobstopper of a story that has seen the last Bit O Honey drained from Congress, replaced by Warheads hurling nonstop Atomic Fireballs? Take 5 with a Fun Dip into this overview of the House of Representatives’ big impeachment vote. Next stop will be open hearings, a House vote, and a Senate trial (which explains the preemptive PayDay for some members of that body). Here’s the Now & Latest from CNN and WaPo on the Rocky Road ahead in the battle to impeach a president who once bragged he could shoot someone in the middle of a 5th Avenue Candy Bar (or something like that). While some will receive this blurb’s Sweet, Tart stylings like a Hershey’s Kiss, I do hear a few Snickers from the Nerds out there who find Candy Corny. At least I had the Malted Milk Balls to give it a shot. What can I say? Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t.
