White House Reportedly in Bat-Shit Crazy Mode


A friendly reminder, the White House is perpetually on the verge of a meltdown.  randomly selected stories this year:

I’m reminding us of this perpetual coverage of what, no doubt, surely is a shitstorm of ineptitude, not because I’m making light of it or trying to lessen its import.  I’m reminding us of this continual state because of our reflexive, never-ending desire for justice and sanity and perhaps how maybe we’re a little more jaded each month and potentially resigned to the fact that the cavalry isn’t on its way.  Sanity is not prevailing.  The cult isn’t suddenly “coming around” to obvious facts.

Almost everything we’ve heard about the inner workings of this administration is hearsay, or uncorroborated, or from someone too far down the chain to be given any weight, or reported from, “Sources inside the White House”.  It never seems to come directly from an unquestionable source with proof-positive facts and documentation.

We never quite get the “smoking gun,” do we.

So let’s not get all wound up when we hear the latest round of insanity and expect that, “This time, we’ll all see, everyone’s gonna see it and believe,” because the overwhelming odds are that’s not going to happen my friend.  The people that we want to hear from,  that leave the White House in shame and with their lives permanently tarnished, are all unfailingly reticent or stubbornly loyal so as to not allow their own decisions to be in question.

More people are about to be fired/helped to resign for sure and the media is going to speculate what it all means.  Trump is going to say more stupid shit and we’re all going to be offended.

What is truthfully much more important than the Russian interference investigation and the palace intrigue is the damage done by the incompetence and the overt corruption.  These topics are outside of the Mueller investigation, but the House Of Representatives have the keys to unlock that box.  Be prepared for 2 years of that.  it’s going to be long, painful, and slow to unravel.

2 years of that.

Ignore the palace intrigue.  Hope whatever forthcoming damage this administration will do is minimized and that the House may corral both Trump’s worst impulses and this administration’s inadequacies.
