They Call Me Mad, But I Am Not Mad Dept.

     Several other bloggers have noted the following emission from Adam Schiff (D, CA):

     “There was one issue we were not allowed to look at and the Senate hasn’t been either that concerns me a great deal and that is the issue of whether Russians were laundering money through the Trump Organization and [if] that is the leverage they have over the president....Someone needs to determine whether those allegations are true or they are not. That certainly would be a priority for me.”

     This is not a man concerned with justice, or evidence. This is a man in the grip of an obsession. It might be an obsession with retaining public attention. It might be an obsession with President Trump himself. Or it might be an obsession with becoming Speaker of the House, as if that were an elevation open to someone who looks as if he’s just wriggled out of a straitjacket. But in Adam Schiff, obsession is present and more than just voting; it’s in unopposed control.

     And being the sort whose memory never fails to amuse him at such times, it’s just tossed this up at me:

     "That's what they called me at Masters and Johnson's clinic, mad. Because I had visions of explorations in sexual areas undreamed of by lesser human beings. It was I who first discovered how to make a man impotent by hiding his hat. I was the first one to explain the connection between excessive masturbation and entering politics. It was I who first said that the clitoral orgasm should not be only for women! They ridiculed me, said I was mad, haha! But I showed them. They threw me out of Masters and Johnson, no severance pay and I had it coming. But I showed them!" [“Dr. Bernardo,” in Woody Allen’s 1972 movie Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask]

     It might not be entirely on point, and contrast. (And just look at those eyes.)

Remember, they're MISSIONARIES.

Whether openly Socialist or not, they believe - can I get a 'Hallelujah!'? - they can create heaven on earth.

And who would stand in the way of that? Only someone evil.

The vitriol I see on the net, even on "professional" LinkedIn, is indicative that they view us as evil. And it won't be long, especially if they regain power, that they "do something" to that evil.
