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.

Have Things Really Changed?

Martin Longman thinks the collusion case is proven, and I'm not going to argue with him.

But the sole voice of reason and reality and Fox News had one of his moments when he strips away the non-stop spin and calls the reality what it really is.  Trump continues to hold on to his supporters, but even 35% of Republicans think the Russia story needs to be investigated.

When Trump's collapse comes it will be sudden and surprising and yet not sudden and surprising.  On the Watergate timeline, this is remarkably fast moving. Perhaps if the American Shitburger Act fails in the Senate, they will quickly pass a horrific, budget busting tax plan, get Donny to sign it, then cash out on this nightmare of a president.

Mike Pence is currently lying about the American Shitburger Act, so he's just another bog-standard Republican though slightly stupider than most.  But at least he's not a Mussolini wannabe, so there's that.
