    Of course, dudes shouldn’t have anything to be afraid of.

    Oh—wait. . . .

    And now for the volley of OW OOWWW OWWWWWs.

    Right. All presidents lie, sooner or later. But our current one lies about everything (and is wrong about everything, which is arguably worse). And the incessant lying is a symptom of a deep, underlying amorality. E.g., trivial example to be sure but a clear one, his statement that he “makes up awards” (like Michigan’s “Man Of The Year”) to give to himself. WaPo counts some seven examples of totally imaginary “awards” Trumpo has supposedly received over the years.

    Forgive me, but I think “continually” would be a better word-choice here.

    There’s a problem, here. The NY Times is not “lefty” except perhaps by comparison with Der Stürmer, and Trumpo’s racism has been on prominent display for years. For example, the shockingly stepmotherly treatment of Puerto Ricans in their distress by his "administration"— American citizens all, but somehow not really. I wonder why. As I remember, Trumpo apparently thought for a while that PR was some sort of Central American country, and not completely clear that he ever learned the difference, but it’s hard to separate his confusion on the point (dense even for Trump) from unsavory predjudices.

    Yeah, as those in this thread already know, what the report actually says is that Mueller didn’t consider “collusion” (shudder-quotes in the original) because it has no legal definition. Not the hardest thing in the world to process, but it apparently eluded Mr Gorrell’s comprehension.

    No, no, no, what it means is very simple, there’s nothing perve about the woman on top.

    Well, short-term inflation-adjusted bonds are in negative territory right now. Borrowed money is in effect free money.

    The real problem is that the Trumpo “administration” actually HAS no infrastructure policy or plan, beyond a vague urge to privatize social capital.

    Which actually has one small thing in its favor: private capital is rather better at maintaining what it has than public capital is. Politicians who recoil in horror from the cost of keeping up public facilities salivate over chances to cut ribbons. (Apparent exceptions, like the deterioration of the rail infrastructure in the east, both suburban and intercity, was also a matter of money-plus-public-malfeasance, when regulatory bodies refused to let carriers raise the fares that had been set before WW II. Looking at you, Robert Moses.)

    In 2003 Eric Alterman published his book “WHAT Liberal Media?” in which he systematically (and very insightfully) demolished the “conservative” mantra on “the liberal mainstream media”. It’s a myth. The conservative (alternate reality) media are a very real thing, however.
