Great moments in journalism

"To wit"

"As such"

"The future of democracy"

"and the planet"

Oh, my. This is possibly the Greatest Writer and Thinker of my lifetime.

In the first sentence he calls the Trump people "free market fundamentalists." Trump explicitly ran against the free market. Even when you mindlessly hate someone you should get your facts straight.

Well, to be fair, that's pretty standard. Dems think every Republican is a fascist, even the bedwetters like McCain and Romney. So from his point of view, I'm sure Trump is, from his perspective, "bad."

Actually it said a mixture of Free marketeers and C-listers, which I would posit as essentially true.

So CG, it is your considered opinion that Trump is not "bad"?

I'm in the who the hell knows camp.

But let me answer the question you are really asking: Just as Barack Obama deserves a Congressional Medal of Honor for keeping the Clintons out of the White House (no matter how big an anti-American socialist he is), so does Trump (whatever the hell he is).

(I'm still open to the idea that Obama helped all this happen, since he'd be insane to let the Clintons anywhere near power if he has any interest in future influence.)

And as for what we've seen so far, he's got a lot of conservative efforts going, so it might be better than I would have thought. We shall see. (And what the hell is this 35 percent tariff thing? A new Berlin Wall? He did say he was going to build walls . . .)

So there are people on the C-list, and then there are the sterling characters who support the free market. Yeah, that's what he meant.
