Impeachment theater must have drama, cue Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan

Today marked the opening curtain on Jester Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee on Impeachment. Keeping with Chairman Schiff’s screenwriter persona and playbook, Nadler’s trio of Constitutional legal scholars came to deliver Twitter approved sound bites.

In keeping with the script, climactic moments edited for effect are essential if you seek to formulate, import, and expand on a narrative necessary to win public support. “Stars” must have carefully crafted close-ups. These framed snippets provide for the media clips to complete their mission: influence public opinion which they hope will be reflected in polling.

Ready for the harsh lights of the cameras, Karlan uses her opening statement to blow up Twitter and send chyrons scrolling across screens.

The professor’s rage bubbled through her delivery, complete with dramatic pauses. However, like all deranged leftists trotted out for public consumption, she jumped the shark. Representative Collins did not accuse her of not reading the transcripts of testimony; he was specific when he said they could not have “digested” Adam Schiff’s 300-page report. Here is Rep. Collins complete statement:

“What is really interesting over today, and for the next few weeks, is America will see why most people don’t go to law school. No offense to our professors. But please, Really? We’re bringing you in here today to testify on stuff that most of you have already written about, all four, for the opinions that we already know, out of the classrooms that maybe you are getting ready for finals in, to discuss things that you probably haven’t even had a chance – unless are you are really good on TV of watching the hearings over the last couple weeks, you couldn’t have possibly actually digested the Adam Schiff report from yesterday or the Republican response [from Monday] in any real way.”

here is the video: 3:35-4:10

Will Twitter sycophants care that Karlan’s “smackdown” is not factual? If you have been paying attention to this movie you know the answer is NO. All that matters is the Oscar-worthy performance that delivers the viral clip that media will play on a loop until Karlan’s assertion magically becomes a fact.

I thought this was supposed to be an impeachment hearing with evidence not opinions from all the Trump Democratic opponents. Pamela Karlan seems just like a partisan hack with another opinion.
