It’s a very terrible thing you said

Democrats’ playbook of dirty tricks is getting old, very old… By Monica Showalter – “Having lost two or three close elections in Arizona and Florida, all of a sudden, they are “finding” new ballots and attempting to change the outcome. Just like they did in Florida’s 2000 election.”

“All of these things are suggestive of a party unable to take ‘no’ for an answer, and thus, unable to adapt to democracy itself. Democrats are reacting to everything they don’t win with childish tantrums, and in each case, trying to move back the clock for a do-over.

But it’s significant that they are using the same sleights of hand they used 20 years ago, and thinking we’re fools who’ll fall for it. They aren’t even coming up with new kinds of dirty tricks, they are just replaying the old ones, hoping for a different result.

This has just got to fail in the era of Trump because one can only go to the well once in politics. Democrats’ latest trick shows they think it’s an open bar.

Sessions Out, Whitaker In — For Now, and Maybe for Good. Andrew C. McCarthy – “Feeling like he’s been burned once, and then saddled for the better part of two years with an AG he could no longer abide, the president may want a trial run before he settles on a “permanent” replacement.” There are those claiming “unconstitutional” about this affair but they assume that (1) it is about firing the special prosecutor and that (2) the President is guilty of something nefarious and (3) the constitution and federal law says what they think it does. McCarthy explains different.

Doesn’t anybody here respect us journalists? Wesley Pruden – “The snowflake disease is catching. Donald Trump, of all people, tried to teach a couple of White House reporters a little needed manners this week and you might have thought he had repealed the First Amendment with an executive order.”

“Yamiche Alcindor of National Public Radio asked the president why he calls himself a “nationalist” when he should know that the word has been twisted into a meaning it once never had.

This is the classic ‘when-did-you-stop-beating your wife’ question.

Attributing bigotry to someone with whom you disagree has become a liberal’s first line of argument, and even a president finds it hard to ignore, and this president doesn’t do letting it go.

“I don’t know why you’d say that,” Mr. Trump replied. “Such a racist question. Honestly? Let me tell you, that’s a racist question. Why do I have the highest poll numbers ever with African Americans? That’s such a racist question. I love our country, I do. You have nationalists, and you have globalists. But to say what you said to me is so insulting to me. It’s a very terrible thing you said.”

Indeed. Very terrible.
