I find myself at TeaParty.org from time to time — I get a lot of mail from Steve Scalise worried that the Democrats will take back the House (and cost him his possible speakership), and from right-wing groups (unless they’re KGB sites — who knows?) like Prepared Patriots and The Daily Conspiracy with headlines like . . . “How To Use Bedsheets To Make Your Escape. Seriously.” . . . “The Deep State Revealed In The Bible: Nothing New Under The Sun” . . . “Ten-Year-Old German Muslim Violates Classmate” . . . “Bombshell Revelation from Egyptian Media: John McCain Was ‘Godfather’ of Muslim Brotherhood.”
Some of these have ads imbedded. My favorite, which appeared in a pro-gun Teaparty.org story: “Can This Free Brain Pill Instantly Double Your IQ?”
To which I found myself silently responding: “Yours, maybe.”
Sorry. But one reads Bob Woodward’s Fear, on one’s smartphone (Kindle edition), and one just has to cry and marvel and vent at the insane turn the world has taken — and dip deeper into one’s home equity line.
Like Michael Cohen.
Except he did it to hush a porn star; I did it to fund organizers.

And if you have 3 minutes for the Rattlesnakes Bluegrass Band, you may enjoy this (not to offend anyone who thinks it’s okay Putin is someone Trump likes and admires).
Quote of the Day
Markets are very good at what they do, in part because they harness greed and envy (in fact, all of the Seven Deadly Sins except sloth) and turn them into positive virtues.~Rocky Mountain Institute newsletter
