Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Dropping The Etch-A-Sketch

There is a theme running around the media that Trump will shake the Etch-A-Sketch and become more reasonable as the general election moves forward.

The problem is that Trump is an egotistical moron.  And so are the people he surrounds himself with.

Ben Carson long ago manifested his supreme ignorance of basic facets of government, but this one is both ignorant and creepy.  Carson suggests that Trump nominate Ted Cruz - who may or may not be the Zodiac killer - just so Cruz can go after a political opponent.  Then, Trump would nominate Cruz to be on the Supreme Court.  This is both Nixonian and incompetent, as it would leave Scalia's seat open until July of 2018.

I swear these fucking people....
