For the first time in about seven years, I’m hopeful about our country’s future. Because, finally, The Age of American Insanity is at least slowly drawing to a close. The Big Lie is over. The Big Liar, and dozens of lower case liars, have now been exposed. The GOP will now drop those liars like a bad habit, not because they have had some ethical epiphany, but simply because the Liars are now Losers and Liabilities.
This process will not be completed overnight. But it is now inevitable. Crazy is no longer an effective strategy.
Things were not going to get better in America until Crazy became uncool. And Crazy is finally falling out of fashion. Well, except on the Supreme Court.
Herschel Walker was not really a candidate for the United States Senate, right? It was all just a bad dream, right? Oh, well, “It gaut bettah…” Congrats to Senator Warnock and to the people of Georgia.
The Trump Organization has been convicted of 17 counts of tax fraud. While Trump did not personally face charges in this case, is there any doubt he was aware of all of these tax crimes and in fact directed them?
I am adamantly opposed to the January 6th Committee’s decision to make criminal referrals to DOJ. It’s unnecessary, and could actually get in the way of the pursuit of justice. Don’t get me wrong. High crimes have been committed, and the Committee has done a masterful job of laying out irrefutable evidence of those crimes. But let Merrick Garland do his job. And don’t give the GOP’s lying toadies a chance to portray these prosecutions as “purely partisan.”
