What Senator Murkowski Meant

Senator Murkowski is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, nor yet the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

There are two and only two sensible ways to interpret the senator’s statement.

Interpretation One

Trump cannot get a fair trial in the Senate because 37 Republican senators would vote to acquit if he raped a Girl Scout on C-Span.

Interpretation Two

The Senator has turned Pentecostal and taken up speaking in tongues.
