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.

Governmenting Is HAAAARRRRRD

Trump is lashing out blindly on Twitter.

Members of the GOP Congress are beginning to realize that repeal without replace is dangerous.

But they appear to be egging each other on to jump off that cliff.

I can afford to be glib.  I'm not going to lose my health insurance.  Millions will and some of them will die sooner because of it.  But it is kind of fun watching the GOP realize that they have talked themselves into a corner on this.
