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.

The Ultimate Trumpism

Trump's assertion that he has had the "most successful 13 weeks in the history of the presidency" may be the most Trumpian utterance yet, as Jon Chait notes at the link above. His presidency has been an objective failure at everything, except executive order to destroy the regulatory state and now Neil Gorsuch.  Legislatively, he's been a complete and utter failure.

And, yeah, he's only been president for 11 weeks.

Honestly.  Is he non compos mentis?
