McConnell- “Undoing a national election.” No, that’s not what impeachment is. Impeachment is the very real consequence when an elected official violates the oath of their office in such a way that they must be called to account. The act is serious enough that it’s been done only a handful of times in the history of our country. Regardless of the narrative put forth, it is neither easy to do or without consequences to everyone involved.

Whether you think the President is guilty, or not, impeachment isn’t a reversal or overturning of an election anymore than getting fired is reversing or overturning the decision to hire you. It’s a consequence of actions taken by you that impact your status now and in the future, not the past. If President Trump were somehow to actually be convicted, the President is still a Republican, not a Democrat. That’s not what you would call a victory for the opposing team.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
