Democrats' impeachment of Trump is way too thin

By John Kass, Tribune Content Agency on

But constant media and political ridicule by the liberal elites can backfire, as it did here in working-class areas in 2016, and as it did just days ago in the United Kingdom with the overwhelming victory of Boris Johnson and the Conservatives over the Labour Party.

As it shrinks in stature, the House Democrat impeachment is beginning to resemble those much-hyped products that you find, forgotten and dusty, in the "As Sold on TV" aisle in dreary discount stores.

ShamWow, Nancy Pelosi.

Pull the Calming Comfort Blanket under your chin, Jerry Nadler.

Adam Schiff? Your easy-on Sock Slider is cheap at any price.

In another life, I trained for a career as a newspaper columnist by working as a butcher at my father's supermarket on Chicago's South Side.


I carved roasts, boned out beef necks, chopped chickens and sliced lunch meat. Some customers wanted their sausage sliced thin enough to see right through.

Like the House Democrats' impeachment of President Trump, sliced too thin, airy, with too little meat. Just butter scraped over too much bread.
