Wait, how do you know what this sounds like?

Best of night: Klobuchar and Booker.

Klobuchar was obnoxious:
I'd love to do more. As I've said before, I'd love to staple free diplomas under people's chairs. I just am not going to go for things -- and this is not -- I'm talking about Senator Harris' plan here, but I'm talking about some of the other ideas that have been out here. I am not going to go for things just because they sound good on a bumper sticker and then throw in a free car.

[...] And that is everything from sending rich kids to college for free, which I don't support, to kicking 149 million off their health insurance -- current health insurance in four years.

just the most absolutely dishonest horsefeathers; go find a republican debate somewhere for these talking points

Hearing how she talks about this stuff makes me 100% sure the stories about how she treats her employees are all true. Garbage person.

I don't know how this got by me yesterday, but THIS is the most boner-inducing video clip of the proceedings, by far. No farts involved.

No matter what ends up happening, I can say that I've seen balls on some Dems that have been missing for a long long time during these proceedings. And Adam Schiff is a horsefeathering boss.

Nunes' reaction is obviously priceless, but on a rewatch, focus on the lady sitting behind Swalwell. Very gif worthy.

I am so horsefeathering tired of all these terrible people being fully complicit in terrible decisions and policies for years and years trying to turn around and be like 'Trump is bad now, give me money and attention'. This guy belongs in prison, and now we might see him plastered all over the news for weeks in a lead up to his sure fire best seller.

Meanwhile the support numbers for impeachment keep dropping, and it's increasingly unpopular in a number of battleground states.

They really better hope something flips in public sentiment before it reaches it's inevitable fizzle in the Senate. I'm kinda thinking the only thing that might do it is if Trump actually testifies like he's blustering that he wants to.
