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.

So Close...

Trump went to Mexico and didn't start a war.  Finally!  The Pivot has arrived!  All Hail the Pivot!

He conducted a rather staid joint press conference with the terminally unpopular Pena Nieto, and people were amazed that he could pull it off.

Before the night was over, however, Pena Nieto was calling him a liar and Trump went full brown shirt in his speech in Arizona.

It was unlikely that he was going to be able to erase several years - even decades - of racist behavior with a single media stunt, but in the end, he only managed to step on his own dick and prove again just how unmoored he is from normal political behavior.
