Doing nothing and crossing fingers, I find, uninspiring and unadmirable.
We creamed the GOP in the House, and did not quite as well as expected in the Senate.

What is the right thing? Indicting someone just so he will officially and finally be declared innocent, so he can wave that around to his base? Why the FUCK is that the right thing? Why the FUCK should we reward that asshole with a second term, in exchange for a meaningless gesture?
