There are many reasons why a lot of us can’t wait until the Senate’s impeachment trial is over, and one of them has to do with Never Trumper Jennifer Rubin’s embarrassing (for her) hot takes on the proceedings.

The Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist has been in a near-frenzied state since the trial began on Tuesday, gushing over the pageantry of it all while laughably suggesting that dishonest lawyers like herself need to do a better job at “denouncing dishonest lawyering.”

She’s saved her best (worst?) commentary, however, for House Intel Chair Adam Schiff (himself a dishonest lawyer). On Wednesday as Schiff was speaking on the Senate floor, Rubin could barely contain her glee. In a tweet that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman would be proud of, she spoke of how “brilliant” Schiff’s legal presentation was. “I am in awe,” she gushed:
