About one year ago, now (my last post here) I wrote that one could not make up a crazier set of… coincidences. Cough.
I. Was. Wrong.
It only took a year… for 45 to use a “dawn of the dead” style dangling Scooter Libby pardon — as a hoped-for signal flare — to his co-conspirators (Manafort and Cohen — but also several others not yet named in Mueller indictments)… that he would save them, if they “played nice” with Der Kaiser. Marcy Wheeler explains overnight why that is — like so much else Trumpian — a half-baked idiots’ show. Ineffectual, as an end game.
But none of that will stop the roaring dumpster-fire of the Trump
presidency erh… crime spree.
I’ll close with a satirical but accurate comment from Avattoir, at Marcy’s joint — of the CURRENT state of 45’s lunacy — and yes it plainly eclipses Cheney/Bush — by several orders of magnitude:
…We’re now well past viable cable serial drama plot cred, with:
– The Door Man Cometh
– Yet Another Funny Hat Hits the Screens on Cable TV News
– Porn Star To Win ($omething) Via Mob Consigliere’s Own Goal
– Mob Consigliere Recorded Everything, and Everything’s Been Seized…
– Total BS-Spouting POTUS Declines To Talk To Attorney in Own Admin
– Two Consecutive FBI Directors (Each A Candidate for Most Boring Straight-Laced White Dude Federal Civil Servant Of The 21st Century) To Publish NY Times Best Selling Books Within One Month
– Same B.S. POTUS & Allies Crank Right Wing Noise Machine Up To Eleven and Trains Same on Said Two Boring Former FBIDs Plus Current Boring White Dude Assistant AG…
…yet no one – not Garry Kasparov nor any other chessmaster, nor any attorney pundit in or out of a funny hat – can possibly foresee the endgame….
Yep — that about covers it (last image at right is a panel, about 15 years ago, at Netroots Nation). Whoda’thunkit — just a decade ago? But here we are. Me? I am actually relieved that it may all be tied up with… a bow. A Scooter Libby smutty novel style… bow.
