Have many stopped to consider why Orange Julius Caesar is so hot to trot with his "disruptive initiatives"? You might notice that most of the damage is coming from his anti-American agency heads. Pruitt (yeah, it's a tort law firm link, but it was the first one that came up with a money quote, which is what matters) declaring asbestos benign.

Hon. Mr. Pruitt: Asbestos has been identified by the EPA as a high-priority chemical that requires a risk evaluation following the process established by the Lautenberg Act to determine whether conditions of use of the chemical substance pose an unreasonable risk. Prejudging the outcome of that risk evaluation process would not be appropriate.

As if the effects of asbestos were unknown? DeVos expressly denied holding all schools to equal performance metrics

Betsy DeVos admits to Sen. Tim Kaine that she does not support holding charter schools "equally accountable" as public schools.

Of course, Orange Julius Caesar and DeVos made millions fleecing vulnerable folks and the Federal government. I spent about a year "teaching" for one of those for-profit schools (not, so far as I know, owned by either). No diploma? No GED? No problem. We'll turn you into a MultiMate expert in a few months. [If you've ever heard of MultiMate...] Just sign here.

One could go on for hours listing the cynical anti-American exploitation of this crew over the course of just three months. But the underlying question is why the need? Orange Julius Caesar knows, for sure, how much collusion there was between himself, his helpmates, and the Russians. He likely knows how far along the FBI (with help from NSA and CIA) investigation is. He's counting the days until his perp walk. Time's a wastin'.

What he's too dumb to figure out: the sooner he craters the country, the longer the electorate lies prostrate into the 2018 election. And, thus, the greater the threat to the Right Wingnut control of Congress. Even shit kickers in Empty States know when they're being kicked in the face while they grovel in the mud. The Obambi employment surge has past, so good luck.

Is Trump enough of an ideologue to care about Republicans?

or, the other way round?  McConnell wanted a Nazi, and that's what he got.  it's, by definition, non-factual, but I'd wage McConnell would have left the Court at 4-4 (even smaller) for as long as he held the Senate.

I worked in a mall when Nixon left office. A cheer went up as people watched on the TV's in display windows.

I wonder what the day will be like when the current scoundrel takes his perp walk. I'm counting the days too but wish for sooner than later.

the real problem is that Pence is sneakier than Orange Julius.  doing him an Agnew would give us Ryan?  the alternatives are daunting.  as much as I want him gone.
