Is that or is that not a great sentiment to rekindle the fires of hope and joy in a progressive’s heart?  With the resignation of the fruitcake Flynn, the mighty house of cards seems to be beginning its implosive crumbling.  Yet, how many times have we said that “this is it!”?  Far too many, so I don’t and refuse to raise my hopes on the matter.

However, that being said, I DO believe that the pax trumpana is maintaining only a tenuous hold on power in a time and place where tenuous is, for all intensive purposes, non-existent.

For me, the weight of this turn of events became real when I heard a journalist utter the fateful phrase that brought down another presidency in our past:  what does the president know and when did he know it?

What are the Vegas odds as to whether or not we will hear the anemic rejoinder, “I am not a crook.”?

Now, we read that the Russians are moving ballistic missiles into locations that violate a treaty with us.  I am sure that trump is mildly pleased that his bonn amie du cul is helping wave a shiny bauble to help distract attention away from the mounting calls for deeper investigations into traitorous acts by our little handed president.

When do you think that republicans will say that it is time for them to flee the sinking ship of state?  Is money and power worth the destruction of our government?  Is there money in that?

Stay strong, my friends. Be attentive to the news and people around you.  Do not go gently into that good night.  You are not alone in this.
