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.

Der Gropenfuhrer*

Folks, this will not be the last instance of Donald Trump being shown to be exactly who Donald Trump is.  My guess is that this was released when it was released because NBC had the tape and wasn't releasing it or because the Wikileaks release of Clinton's speeches was yesterday and this drowns out the mildly embarrassing revelation that Clinton tells audiences what they want to hear.

We are already learning that Trump has committed tax fraud in NYC by claiming a tax break on a non-resident domicile that was intended for the middle class.  We can be reasonably certain that there are more damning financial statements, more damning racist and misogynistic statements and more brushes with legal troubles than we have seen.  Trump is a vulgarian.  When Kelly Ayotte said Trump should be a role model, you know the DSCC had a small collective orgasm.

Now, the RNC is meeting to try and figure out what to do with this guy.  How much fealty do they owe him?  His voters?  Do you just ride out 2016 and wait to take everything back in 2018?  At what point does the entire establishment cut this guy loose?

Oh, and thanks, Donald, for making me have to teach this shit.
