Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski has become the latest of the wavering GOP senators to announce that they will vote against the Democrat scam to use the Senate trial as a way of calling witnesses and demanding documents that they didn’t think were important during the investigative process.

I have to admit that I’m a bit surprised. I pegged Murkowski as one who would use her vote to preen, Romney-like, in the reflected glory of her superior virtue. I was right about the preening part but wrong about how she’d vote, but I’ll take my wins where I can get them.

As my colleague, Duke, posted yesterday, the battle over calling witnesses to extent the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump is over. According to my count, only Susan Collins and Mitt Romney have decided to vote with the Democrats against America. Mitch McConnell has his 51 votes and all we are doing right now is just bayoneting the wounded…or maybe just leave them to make tiny puppy noises in the dark:
