An open letter to Ms. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, US Congress.
Dear Ms. Pelosi,
You recently stated, regarding the matter of impeaching President Trump, that “he’s not worth it.”
So a man slips into my house through an unguarded second-story window with the help of an accomplice named Vladimir. He drinks my beer, urinates on my carpets, tags the walls with spray paint, writes huge checks to his buddies using my checkbook, plays loud music all night, threatens the neighbors when they complain, sets fire to the piano, rapes my mother, rapes my dog….
The police investigate, and say, “Yep, he did all these things, and a few more things you didn’t know about. And we weren’t allowed to check out the basement, but there’s a smell coming up from there that … well, we really think it merits further investigation.”
They take the report to the prosecutor, and she says,
“He’s not worth it.”
Of course, he’s not worth it. He’s scum. He raped my dog, for God’s sake — who does that sort of thing? He’s not the point.
What you’re really telling us, Ms. Pelosi, is that we’re not worth it. Your constituents aren’t worth it. The integrity of the Office of the President is not worth it. The United States of America is not worth it.
You’re telling us that we’re not worth the cost, and the trouble, of you doing a part of your job you find difficult and distasteful.
Shame on you.
