Rand Paul says he is going to boycott the "sham impeachment" trial

I think he should do exactly that, and get some of his repug senator buddies to join him. As long as we have a quorum, we can proceed (and convict). And this will be perfect cover for the cowards who want to but are to afraid to convict - just stay home and "boycott". Do it Rand.

Don't count his boycott as a promise to abstain from voting.

because two-thirds of the senators present are needed to convict.

10. He'll boycott it up until the day of the vote.

Then he'll show up and vote against conviction.

You can take it to the bank.

to the alternative reality so many republicans inhabited during the failed Trump administration. Paul is a waste of the elements he's composed of. It amazes me that some people believe him a role model.

Once in a great while, Rand Paul does the proper thing. As I type this, I'm confident that he's returned to his usual obnoxious, poorly-dressed and barely groomed, proto-fascist self.
