It was an 'auspicious' occasion – at least it was in the minds of Democrats going through the process for delivering the articles of impeachment to the Senate. Nancy Pelosi's floor address had a little bit for everyone. Let's see, there was the reverence of how prayerful she's been during these "trying times." Then a pledge of allegiance reference, "and to the Republic for which it stands," fortified by Ben Franklin's "you have a Republic if you can keep it” – a stretched effort to prove the Democrats are saving the Republic. Other references were offered up from Jefferson, Lincoln, Thomas Paine, and Longfellow(???), to compare their words and actions to these modern-day machinations. Then we were asked to think about the "children" – hey Nancy, does that include all the aborted ones perpetrated by your ideological bent? All-in-all, it was an un-impressionable speech. All to impress upon us, no matter how trite an attempt, that she and her flock are doing God's work. I wonder if she writes her own stuff. In her favor, she did maintain a tone and presence of solemnity throughout, I guess to fortify the "very solemn occasion and how sorry they are that it had to get to this point" approach. Well, time changes everything and it was a long day – by the time of the signing ceremony, all seriousness had waned. Nancy could hardly contain herself when finally, finally, signing the impeachment articles - there was a plate full of pens so that she could sign the articles, letter by letter, with a separate pen for each, jubilantly passing the pens to each manager, plus Maxine Waters (the impeachment cheerleader for the past 3 years).
