I rarely watch these things, and can’t recollect ever embedding one here. Which just tells you how hair-on-fire, gott-dang good this one is.

WHOA, that’s good squishy! Related verbiage:
(The) closing line echoed McConnell’s blistering speech the day after Democrats in the House voted to impeach President Trump.
“The Senate’s duty is clear,” he declared. “Only one outcome will preserve core precedents rather than shatter them into bits in a fit of partisan rage.” McConnell urged the Senate to reject the articles of impeachment in order to “serve the stabilizing, institution-preserving, fever-breaking role for which the United States Senate was created.”
Indeed, that is the role of the Senate — and Republican senators would be wise to heed the message. As of Tuesday night, it appears they have. Every single Republican senator voted against Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) amendment to subpoena the Trump administration for documents. The line is holding.
Senate Repubs sure-damned better see that it continues to do just that. Should they falter on this, one of the gravest responsibilities they ever have or ever will confront, the consequences could very well swamp not just them but the nation itself.
