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.

What Will It Take

In the early days of the Trump Administration, it looks like we will have to rely on foreign press and foreign intelligence agencies to get to the bottom of the Water Sports Memo.  While there are some stirrings of resistance to Trump's Russia ties in the Senate, in the end, we can count on the GOP either rallying behind him or muddying the waters.  This was the strategy with Iran-Contra.

The sad and almost terrifying fact is that Trump supporters simply don't care about this story.  This should come as a surprise to precisely no one.  Willful suspension of belief in evidence is prevalent on any political extreme. And currently the GOP is a party of extremists.
