After Donald Trump brazenly claimed victory on election night the Irish Daily Mirror ran a headline that pithily summed up his character. Sadly the GOP is full of enablers and cowards and his assault on our democracy continues.

It did not have to be like this. Unfortunately, the United States is currently governed by a Confederacy of imbeciles, sociopaths and cowards resulting in the worst response to Covid in the world. And it all starts with the moron in Chief who assumes no responsibility for this disaster Donald Trump.

Faced with a shrinking aging demographic base and unpopular policies, the GOP has decided voter suppression is the way for it to hold on to power.

In March, Donald Trump announced a “peace deal” with the Taliban.  More recently he announced he wants to pull out by Christmas.  There are no great answers in Afghanistan, but there is a risk these moves are accompanied by the lack of planning that is the hallmark of the Donald Trump presidency.

I have never really been a big fan of Mitt Romney, but today he stepped up when none of his fellow Republican Senators did in voting to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial.  It did not affect the ultimate result, but Mitt Romney still deserves praise for being willing to take the abuse the Trump cult will now direct his way.

On paper Tulsi Gabbard would be an ideal candidate. Young, attractive, charismatic and a veteran you would think she would be marked for bigger things in the Democratic Party. Unfortunately her presidential run is going nowhere, her Congressional career is almost over and her future job prospects are likely a talking gig on Faux News.  Why did it come to this?

No written constitution can cover all acceptable modes of behavior.  Unwritten governing norms are critical in helping government function.  Unfortunately the lust for power often results in governments abusing constitutional provisions that lead to a slide downhill and often have unintended consequences.  The United States is a a critical juncture as norms are being abused with no concern on the long term harm to the Republic.

The drama in Washington forces a detour from the planned series of episodes as we take a quick look at the Ukraine imbroglio, the impeachment train picking up steam and a beleaguered President melting down in an un-presidential manner.
