Our last two Republican presidents were all but tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail. I can’t imagine why anyone would want another one. It’s like buying another Pinto after the first two spontaneously combusted in your face. (That’s a really old reference, I grant you....

It is a new year.  Trump’s days are specifically numbered.  Hope of effective Covid vaccines remain in the air.  And, yet . . .

Ryan Lizza tries to convince us that Trump is a formidable debater because horse race, even if Trump is a mudder. When the track gets wet, and his finances are below water, there will be no rain delay on any course. x Worth reading but it's worth remembering that Trump was judged...

Other than Trump’s deliberate mass-casualty response to COVID-19, there was an earlier event that had similar malevolence. This is not about “antifa” as a threat, rather it is the continuing, intergenerational threat of right-wing domestic terror, made more possible by Trump’s election and not triggered by isolated individuals. x TREASONOUS SABOTAGE OF...

Trump is pressing to resume shortly his regular “rallies” — with thousands packed in an arena despite the Covid pandemic.   This brings to mind the wide, post-mortem soul-searching among the press for giving so much uncritical, long broadcasts of Trump’s rallies in the 2016 election.  As just one example in “My...
