In Utah, Senator Mike Lee is running against the #NeverTrump candidate Evan McMullin, and the race is a little closer than most Republicans would like. Senator Mitt Romney, who is not up for reelection this year, is doing next to nothing to help Lee's campaign. Some GOP senators are getting annoyed by his lack of support.

A growing number of people on the right have had it with Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT). Romney was the only Republican senator to vote against a recent measure to end mask mandates on public transportation. He also participated in a fundraising event for Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who's also not winning any popularity contests with Republican voters right now.

Grandstanding, calculated dispute, whatever it is, Tulsi Gabbard and Sen. Mitt Romney got into a nasty Twitter spat after Gabbard published a video encouraging all involved forces to destroy "dangerous pathogens" housed in the US-funded biolabs in Ukraine. Romney called Gabbard a traitor and Gabbard insisted Romney resign.

A post-departure Senate impeachment trial of a former President is unconstitutional. Just read the plain text of the constitution, which talks of a trial of the president, not a former president. None of the opinion to the contrary explains the absense of the word "former" (or similar) in the text of the constituational impeachment provisions.

The Senate's squishy middle contingent is shrinking. Rapidly. Cocaine Mitch got to Sen. Romney who committed to considering a SCOTUS nominee and now Sen. Murkowski, who said last week that she wanted to stick to the "2016 precedent" has changed her tune, saying she "won't rule out" voting to confirm a Trump nominee to the SCOTUS before November's election.

Surprisingly, I'm not angry at Mitt Romney for his vote to convict Donald Trump for abuse of power and to remove him from office. I disagree with it, strongly, but anger isn't my emotion. "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me" is more my emotion. Disgust is more my emotion. Romney has disappointed so many times, I'm numb to him.
