#AnnieHall #ImpeachEisenhower vs #LockHerUp

Leftists are indignant at Trump Voters for chanting "Lock Her Up"

However, as is evident with all the street riots mocked by @TheHorsePundit tweet

if leftists don't win at the ballot box, they engage in a two pronged attack of anarchy on the streets and lawfare in the courts. An example of the latter was the interminable "John Doe" fishing expedition against Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin to uncover GOP donors so Democrats can boycott and harass them, which was eventually shut down by the US Supreme Court

From M.D. Kittle  "Wisconsin Watchdog" November 9, 2016 article  "Voters reward John Doe prosecutors at the polls"
"Earlier this year, they asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the state Supreme Court’s ruling because the prosecutors claimed two of the conservative judges on the case should have recused themselves. The U.S. Supreme Court made quick work of rejecting the petition for review.Even now, Chisholm et al are fighting to hold onto the many possessions they took from the people they hounded, and face potential civil rights lawsuits now that the John Doe truly is dead."
Wisconsin Republicans now want to turn around and investigate the investigators:

From M.D. Kittle  "Wisconsin Watchdog" November 7, 2016 article "Rep. Dave Craig: Time has come to investigate John Doe investigators"

"The lawmaker said he is hopeful his fellow Republicans finally get behind the bicameral investigative committee after the new session begins in January.
'We cannot as a Republican Party stand by and let people’s civil rights be abused,” Craig said in the September interview. “We cannot allow that to occur while these individuals’ rights have been trampled, because what we are saying by our inaction is that we are willing to stand by as the people who hold the power of the purse, the power of impeachment, we are going to allow bad actions to occur in the future from our government.'"

I pointed out the left's hypocrisy of only accepting the outcomes of elections when their side wins by citing an example illustrated from an old Woody Allen comedy:

The New Press review of John Nichols book "The Genius of Impeachment: The Founders' Cure for Royalism" quotes from "Annie Hall"

I then went back and forth with a Woody Allen fan on twitter who complained, pedantically, that "Annie Hall" is only a comedy.  My counter is that, to the modern left, "comedy" is only political invective with a sneer.

 From Mollie Hemingway NOVEMBER 11, 2016 "The Federalist" article "How Jon Stewart And ‘The Daily Show’ Elected Donald Trump"

"On late-night television, it was once understood that David Letterman was beloved by coastal liberals and Jay Leno more of a Middle American taste. But neither man was prone to delivering hectoring monologues in the style of the ‘Daily Show’ alums who now dominate late night. Fallon’s apolitical shtick increasingly makes him an outlier among his peers, many of whom are less comics than propagandists — liberal “explanatory journalists” with laugh lines.Some of them have better lines than others, and some joke more or hector less. But to flip from Stephen Colbert’s winsome liberalism to Seth Meyers’s class-clown liberalism to Bee’s bluestocking feminism to John Oliver’s and Trevor Noah’s lectures on American benightedness is to enter an echo chamber from which the imagination struggles to escape."
"At the same time, this echo chamber of smuggery isn’t helping Americans have shared cultural goals, much less an ability to work together to achieve them. Jon Stewart is known for brutally deriding a show that featured people of differing views civilly discussing issues of the day. He got that show killed and significantly strengthened the world where cultural elites engaged in groupthink mockery of those with whom they disagree."
"The results include a further erosion of civility, a decrease in Americans’ ability to understand each other and their concerns, and, of all things, President-elect Donald Trump. Should late-night political comedy continue in its path, who knows what the future holds."
