Welcome back!

So. It is becoming increasingly obvious that you can't make stupid work no matter how hard you wish. They came, they wished, smart people explained why stupid wouldn't work and other people explained how stupid would cost a lot. And then the revolutionaries left. One by one, willingly or not, they left. Orthodoxy within the range of normal American political parameters remains. Except, of course, for the loony president. And I heard of worse strategies of dealing with this addled mental midget than replicating The Truman Show with Trump in the starring no role.

"I have a written a book about France under fascism, and what we are now experiencing is exactly what incipient fascism looks like. The combination of Trump’s relentless assaults on the free press, his open encouragement of Nazis — which is the only honest description of his initial refusal to condemn them — and now a pardon without even pretending to go through the normal channels of the Justice Department — these are all the acts of man who is blatantly defying his sacred pledge to uphold the Constitution of the United States."

"Like the men and women of Vichy France who began their collaboration with the Nazis seventy-seven years ago, from now on, every senator and House member of either party who continues to remain silent about this president’s unconstitutional acts is directly complicit in the high crimes and misdemeanors of Donald Trump."
