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.

Lie Down With Dogs

The story of Trump's involvement with some seriously shady Russian intelligence and/or crime figures is very complicated.

It is therefore unlikely to get far in a media culture that is devoted to the superficial and easy to understand.  That's why prostitutes peeing on a bed will be remembered and Trump's connection to shady people likely gets washed down the memory hole.
