From Charles C.W. Cooke (why does that name sound familiar?), in today’s NRO:
“In the wake of the federal indictment against Trump — which, unlike the Bragg nonsense, is absolutely devastating — I’ll ask again: Aren’t you all tired of this crap? Don’t you want to get past it? Don’t you want to do some politics for a change? How much longer do we all have to put up with this garbage?
We’re now in year eight of Donald Trump’s nonsense, and he’s getting worse, not better. Trump lost in 2020. Then he tried to rewrite the Twelfth Amendment and the Electoral Count Act of 1887 to steal the election. Then he interfered in the 2022 primaries, with disastrous political consequences. Now he’s been indicted for stealing highly classified documents — which, yes, is not the same as a conviction, and which should not be confused with one, but which has clearly happened as a result of his total disregard for the rules. What, in Heaven’s name, is the case for keeping him around? He’s broken his oath of office. He’s repeatedly revealed himself to be completely unfit for the presidency. He’s shown he can’t win. Politicians are servants. Trump isn’t serving anything or anyone. Why is he still in the conversation?”
That is my question. I’m a life-long conservative (Reagan branch), and am so tired of all the Trump garbage that I may choose to vote “Mickey Mouse” in 2024. I long for the days when politics was politics instead of a clown circus.Published in
