I guess this is where we are – I honestly thought this headline was about Trump


So I’m looking at Slate and I see this link (your know the click through to take you to the article)

Western Media has done more than Trump to Legitimize the Dictator’s Sham Election”

I am absolutely certain that this is an article about Trump.  Finally an article blaming the media for Trump.  And in Slate!!! I mean this is a long way from the contrarian Slate right?

Well no. The article is about Putin.  I am so disappointed. I’m not going to link to it because it actually legitimizes Trump as a world leader.

Then I have a phone conversation with a friend with an eighteen year old son. They are seriously making contingency plans in case Trump starts a war and institutes a draft. His friends are as well. And I think it’s a good idea.

Sigh, how did we get here?
