Fake News


Harry Reid today:

Harry Reid: The Trump Campaign ‘Was In On’ Russia’s Election Hacking

Harry Reid four years ago:

Harry Reid says anonymous source told him Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years



Another Exploding Head


Another sober reaction to Trump

I view Trump’s election as the most grievous blow that the American idea has suffered in my lifetime. The Kennedy and King assassinations and the 9/11 attacks were crimes and tragedies. The wars in Vietnam and Iraq were disastrous mistakes. But the country recovered. For a democratic process to elevate a man expressing total disregard for democratic norms and institutions is worse.

Worse than assassinations, 9/11, Vietnam and Iraq.



The Good News About Trump


Since November 8th the one thing I have been greatly looking forward to is the head explosions of some of the best and brightest of the Left.

Like this guy:

But we ought to be able to look both forward and back, to criticize both the way Mr. Trump gained power and the way he uses it. Personally, I’m still figuring out how to keep my anger simmering — letting it boil over won’t do any good, but it shouldn’t be allowed to cool. This election was an outrage, and we should never forget it.

I have not been disappointed. 

I still think the simplest explanation for Clinton's loss is the best and it's summed up in this headline:

Your Candidate Was Crap. Deal With It.
