Keystone Klux Klan

The gangrene that couldn't shoot straight.

Update: Maybe I was o'erhasty. This suggests that this Administration will be much more effective -- terrifyingly so -- than it has thus far appeared. It turns out we actually elected Bannon as our president. Those who feared a more effective demagogue than Trump would appear need wait no longer.

Silly man

David Brooks calls for a third party -- and the third party he describes already exists. It's called the Democratic Party. Brooks correctly sees that the GOP is dead, but is so tied to faux centrism that he can't just make the switch to the other side. Instead, he has to pretend that the Dems are as radical as the GOP and fantasize a new party.

Clear and present danger

The radicalization of the Republican Party proceeds apace. It is no longer a mainstream governing institution. It has become a treasonous cabal, dedicated to overthrowing American democracy. This is Trump as symptom, rather than disease. The latest evidence: this and this. The patriotic response by the Democratic Party, defending the people and the Constitution, must be forceful. As president, Hillary must use executive authority, er, liberally. Chuck Schumer must get rid of the fillibuster. We are truly in danger from this treason, and it must be crushed.

Every. Single. Word

Rebecca Traister nails it. There are too many money quotes to quote, but the punchline is especially perfect -- that Trump's campaign is to "make America hate again."
