Today’s paragraphs come to us from Roger Simon, writing for pjmedia.com. They concern the neverending (because it still continues), neverstarting (because they still haven’t shown us any evidence) Trump/Russia collusion “investigation”.
In what feels like the 27th year of the Trump-Russia-Collusion Investigation, what we have most recently learned is that a lawyer no one ever heard of may have made a false statement to the FBI and even erased a few emails concerning events that happened years before the election and have something to do with the Ukraine. We have further learned that a group of Russians in St. Petersburg have been trolling us since at least 2014 (what took them so long?), playing both sides against the middle and even going so far as to organize a post-election demonstration in front of Trump Tower featuring Michael Moore assuring us that “he’s not my president!” while being cheered on by some extraordinarily credulous women with microphones from CNN.
Forget going from the sublime to the ridiculous. This has gone from the ludicrous to the harebrained. The fact that anyone could be taking this nonsense seriously anymore boggles the proverbial mind, but they do — especially at that antediluvian relic known as the mainstream media.
And therein lies the treachery — not for Donald Trump, who spends far too much time paying attention to it himself, but for the Democratic Party because, seemingly entranced (even hypnotized) by the non-stop (even now) coverage by CNN and other so-called serious outlets, they have completely forgotten who they are, i. e. a political party with policies, goals, etc.
Lost in a Russia-induced haze, the Democratic Party virtually no longer exists. They have no ideas, no proposals, nada. There’s nothing but Nancy Pelosi whining about “crumbs” while genuine tax reform is appearing live in people’s paychecks. The Democrats can dream about a “wave election,” but the only wave that seems to be coming their way is a surfer’s wipeout.
Mr. Simon continues beyond these paragraphs, and the rest is at least as good as the above. Do yourself a favor and use the link I’ve provided to read it all.
Does anyone even know what the Democrat platform is, other than unseating Donald Trump, banning guns and legitimizing illegal aliens?
The only point I disagree with is that wipeout claim. In midterm elections, the out-of-power party tends to win seats, even if, qualitatively, they are stinking out the place, and 2018 is likely to be no exception. But, even there, I can’t say I’m sure. Eight more months of Schiff, Pelosi and Schumer has the potential to turn off just about anyone.
I award Roger Simon Paragraphs Of The Day honors for his insight about what the Democrat Party has become – insight that would do the party a great deal of good if there were any hope it would be paying attention. Right now, the prospects are below bleak.
