Two hours of dog barking: Adam Schiff tries to bore us into Getting Trump

Adam Schiff is a man of peculiar reasoning.  Like a dolt shouting louder at a foreign-language speaker in a bid to make him "understand," Schiff's decided that if he just keeps speaking long enough, we will all suddenly turn into anti-Trumpsters and throw Trump from office.

No kidding, he spoke for two and a half hours in his House manager introduction to the Senate impeachment court, the length of which alone was deadly to his case in the age of Twitter.  Seriously, two and a half hours.  Imagine listening to a dog barking for two and a half hours...

This sentiment pretty well describes how well that went over:

And this:

And if it was bad for the flyover, imagine how it was to be trapped inside the Senate capsule with Schiff's words echoing off the walls and never, never, never stopping...

Update: The Associated Press filed this:

The agony of the senator-jurors had begun to show the night before, with widespread but more subtle struggles to pay attention to opening arguments. Gum-chewing, snacking, yawning and alleged napping could be seen throughout the cramped chamber.

Around midnight, things got looser. Senators paced and chatted near the wall. Then the prosecutors and Trump’s defense team got into a back-and-forth over who was lying and making false allegations about Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to help him politically.

...and...

But for many, Wednesday hurt. Roberts had gaveled Tuesday’s session closed at 1:50 a.m.

Fewer than 12 hours later, the senators were back, with little sleep, for more of the same impeachment story, told by Schiff and his team in exhaustive detail. Even with Roberts’ scolding still fresh, many senators were in no mood for rules or traditions.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell was seen nodding off, Sen. Rand Paul was seen working on his crossword puzzle, and Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein, who was actually one of two Democrats to escort Supreme Court Justice John Roberts into the room, voted with her feet.

An 86-year-old woman needs her sleep.

Sen. Lindsey Graham had a lot of eye rolls, too:

Even the Guardian noticed a problem:

Here's another choice tweet:

Imagine Bernie Sanders stuck sitting through that while knowing all along he was within grasping distance of overtaking Joe Biden in Iowa, except that he had to be here.  Same with Liz Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and maybe a couple others.

Supreme Court chief justice John Roberts seemed to have better things to do with his time, too, and told the Dems he'd had a bellyfull.

It's playing so well for Republicans that even NeverTrump Rich Lowry thought Cocaine Mitch (note: this term is a joke, a thumb in the eye of the left, and even McConnell thinks it's funny) should have given them more rope:

Not only did Schiff drone on and on and on — because effectively, he had nothing to say — but he had the face of a madman.

After failing to prove Russia collusion, or make a winnable impeachment case in the House, this is the latest Wile-E.-Coyote scheme is to bore us to death, telling us over and over and over again that which we already knew and rejected.

No wonder support is rising in the Senate for just throwing the whole thing out.  Sen. Rand Paul, looking up from his crossword puzzle, says he's got 45 senators now in favor of scrapping the latest Schiff show and rising.  Message: Make it stop.

GatewayPundit has a magnificent roundup of just how bored the captive audience in the Senate was.

And more significant, public support for President Trump is soaring.  Gallup just reported that Trump now has the highest level of public support in his entire presidency.  The more Schiff talks, the higher Trump goes.  And stating the obvious, The Hill reports that the public is the only audience that matters.  They don't do two-point-five-hour speeches.

Thanks for clarifying, Pencil-Neck.
