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.

Now What?

The Comey testimony - what little I could glean of it from bathroom breaks - appeared to have a few rhetorical fireworks but more along the lines of firecrackers than TNT.

What stood out in the coverage was how Republicans are running cover for Trump.  Seriously, McCain?  Hillary's emails?

There is little doubt that Trump engaged in obstruction of justice.  We have yet to determine the full menu of his criminality - follow the money - but that first charge alone was enough to bring down Nixon.  Plus, how is there not a strong contingent of Republicans who would prefer boring old troglodyte Mike Pence in the White House?

Trump is a criminal.  His supporters are morons.  His enablers in Congress are something worse.
