George Parry of The American Spectator tells us how the Democrats have stuck their heads in the impeachment meat grinder. He writes (abridged):
Seventy-five years ago today, 200,000 German soldiers launched a surprise attack through the Ardennes Forest and created a bulge in the Allied front lines in Belgium. At the salient’s heart was the town of Bastogne from which roads led to the North Sea and the major Allied supply port of Antwerp.
The 101st Airborne Division hastily established a defensive perimeter around the town. But it was questionable how long the Americans could resist the massive enemy onslaught. It was feared that a German breakthrough at Bastogne would lead to their capturing Antwerp and cutting the Allied supply chain, which quite possibly could turn the tide of the war in Europe.
On December 19, 1944, Supreme Allied Commander Dwight Eisenhower convened an emergency meeting of his generals. The prevailing attitude was one of glum astonishment at this sudden and grave development.
But, in sharp contrast to the cautious and defensive mindset of the other generals, the commander of the American Third Army, George S. Patton, exuded confidence and optimism.
Where others saw only disaster, Patton recognized the attack as an opportunity to smash the Wehrmacht.
I couldn’t help but think of Patton’s bold pronouncement as I watched the Democrat majority on the House Judiciary Committee cobble together their fatuous and flimsy articles of impeachment against President Trump. If, as appears certain, the House Democrat majority actually approves these specious articles, they will be handing the Republicans an electoral opportunity of historic proportions.
To paraphrase Patton, the Democrats will have stuck their heads in a meat grinder and dared the president and his allies to start cranking the handle.
The White House and the Republicans should welcome impeachment as the gift that it is: the perfect predicate to expose the full range of the Democrats’ corruption and hypocrisy.
