    Jim Geraghty needs reminding that the first gay U.S. President was James Buchanan. Pete Buttigieg, if elected, might be described as the first openly gay POTUS but back in 1856 people did not identify by sexual orientation. The fact that James Buchanan was a homosexual was no secret among elite society circles but was deemed irrelevant as long as he behaved discreetly and gave no occasion for public scandal.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that John Durham sounds like a replay of Bob Mueller? The highly-regarded attorney/investigator from decades ago, who doesn’t leak to the media, everyone’s idea of a “top man,” who turns out to be a doddering old man who not only probably didn’t write the investigation report himself, but didn’t even READ it?

    Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, etc, have plenty to offer the unemployed blue-collar workers in Indiana etc: healthcare (somehow) paid for by others, unemployment money (somehow) paid for by others, housing (somehow) paid for by others…

    It won’t – it CAN’T – actually succeed, but that’s what they’ll offer. And I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of desperate people fall for it.

    George Conway is the smallest man in American politics today. He beats even a train wreck like Max Boot, who doesn’t attack his own family (as far as I know). 

    I’m sure Conway revels in the “strange new respect” he gets from liberals, even as they laugh at him behind his back.

    Historians and biographers appear to be divided on the issue of Buchanan’s homosexuality.

    Given Buchanan’s reputation as the worst President in American history, gays may consider his being named as one of them an antigay slur
