I don’t normally get upset about Trump. My feeling is that we’ve got to have a Republican president, it’s better that it be someone who is poor politician. I mean, Marco Rubio would be bombing Iran and have a 60% approval rating right now (the latter because of the economy).
But certain things do make me hope that someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. One is the continued popularity of David Brooks, sixteen years after he cheerled the Iraq War with North Korean-style propaganda about Dear Leader W. Another is that Ken Starr is still on my tv sometimes, even after heading up a rape factory at Baylor. But what pisses me off most these days is Jonathan Turley. He was everywhere in 1998 telling people that Clinton had to be impeached. He also thought that W should be impeached. He mused about having Obama impeached. And now he’s using the old “if my dog has a fit, you must acquit” defense in support of Trump.
“I get it: You are mad,” he testified. “The president is mad. My Democratic friends are mad. My Republican friends are mad. My wife is mad. My kids are mad. Even my dog seems mad — and Luna is a goldendoodle and they don’t get mad. So we’re all mad.
I don’t think that this goes in healthy societies. There’s never a shortage of hacks and liars but couldn’t we at least get a new crop of hacks and liars every 20 years or so? Is that asking for too much?
Also too, let’s raise a little more money for the seventeen most vulnerable House incumbents. They’re going to have to vote for impeachment soon and many of them are in districts that Trump carried.
