Lindsey Graham has earned himself yet another chapter in “Profiles in Cowardice.” He knew Trump was dangerously unfit. He still knows it. They all knew it. They all still know it. How do we know that? Because they’ve all said it. And it’s all recorded. Graham. McCarthy. McConnell. Meadows. Call the roll.
And now they want to put our country back through that hell and back into that peril again? Yes. “Profiles in Cowardice.”
Why would any GOP candidate for pretty much anything WANT a Trump endorsement? I mean, except that it’s magic among the Cultists. LeGrande L’Orange is undefeated except in Nebraska. These Cultists just can’t get enough of that criminally seditious insurrectionist and traitor.
And let me re-state something I first wrote six months ago. Biden will be a one-term president. He has no path out. Some things are his fault. Many other things (inflation, gas prices, the stock market) are not. But it won’t matter. Perception is everything. And the Perception Ship has sailed. The Dems do not have anyone waiting in the wings who is remotely electable in 2024. And that’s not “hyperbole.”
But this is not hyperbole, either. So far, Biden has done a remarkable job—make that a brilliant job—of managing U.S. interests in Mr. Putin’s War. That could change. But so far Biden has been two-steps ahead of that KGB Devil at every turn.
Putin thought his four-year manipulation of Trump had left NATO weakened, fractured and ineffective. Instead Pooty-Poot is facing a unified and resolute NATO that is about to add Finland and Sweden. Sucks for you, Vlad.
I’m watching 80-year-old David Gergen on tv saying that Biden is too old and too slow to be president. I’m open to that suggestion. But is Trump not too fucking crazy to be president? This is indeed what Webster’s would define as a “dilemma.”
Codify Roe as the Law of the Land? The votes in the Senate are not there, so you can forget that.
Gun violence is up around the country. Way up. And we’re told the solution is more guns under less regulation and supervision. My statement is not anti-gun, per se. It’s anti-insanity.
Ukraine? Not enough? Consider this. It could be flat-out on (again) between the Israelis and Palestinians by the time we talk tomorrow. Let me be clear. There was NO justification for Israeli soldiers murdering an Al Jazeera Palestinian-American journalist and wounding her producer. None. Outrageous. I condemn it and them in no uncertain terms. There is mounting evidence that she was specifically targeted.
