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.

I Hate Trump For Making Me Conspiratorial

I'm not overly fond of conspiracy theories, but the idea that Trump leaked his own taxes seems pretty plausible.  Whoever leaked it had access to Trump's copy.  The form leaked tells us very little about what we need to know about his financial ties.  It was from one year that could easily have been cherry-picked.  In 2004-5, we were really hitting the housing bubble's expansion.  So if Trump DIDN'T make money in those years, he's an even bigger fraud than I thought.

This feels very much like Maddow got played.
