What set their hair on fire today

These are the best eight years of our lives for two reasons.

1. Everything is going well for Americans. Our economy is growing, peace is breaking out, and our government is shrinking.

2. Everything is going poorly for the people who hate America.

Rather than enjoy this small sliver of peace and prosperity which is rare in the history of mankind, they keep trying to make trouble. They keep failing.

For example, there was the "Snarling orange 'Trump baby' blimp" that Reuters and other new organizations promoted last week. It turned out to be smaller than one of those yard Santa balloons you see in December.

They began last week by drafting fill-in-the-blank press releases on Monday denouncing whomever President Trump chose to nominate to the Supreme Court. They made most of the points I made in a June 30 post, "The generic editorial against Trump's next pick."

Hillary's speechwriter may have lifted this passage, "Most Republicans want to return America to the oppressive and conformist days of the 1950s when everyone had a job instead of welfare! President Trump has nominated a person who wants to return to the slave days of 1850s!"

She said: "I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s."

Well, I did encourage them to cut and paste it.

So what has set their hair on fire today?

Well, Bungling Bob Mueller indicted a dozen more Russians who conveniently cannot be extradited so his charges will never have to be proved in court.

David French lit his lid and wrote, "Mueller’s Latest Indictments Show That ‘Witches’ Are Very Real."

He wrote, "Republicans were rightly outraged when Barack Obama opined about the pending Clinton-email investigation, and we have since learned that his gratuitous and public exoneration of the then – likely Democratic nominee created a headache for the FBI. Now it’s time for Republicans to be consistent. As Mueller reveals more facts about Russian interference and indicts more individuals for troubling crimes uncovered as part of his entirely legitimate investigation, it’s time for the GOP to tell the president that the hunt needs to continue, because the witches are very real."

French has a law degree from Harvard. Apparently he skipped the class on due process and believes an indictment is a conviction.

President Trump is spending his weekend in Scotland at his Trump Turnberry resort. The days are nearly at their longest, and it is a great time to be in his motherland. His mother was born in Scotland.

If I owned it, I would spend most of my summers there.

Adam Davidson of the New Yorker wrote, "Where Did Donald Trump Get Two Hundred Million Dollars to Buy His Money-Losing Scottish Golf Club?"

Um, he borrowed the money.

That's what developers do. They borrow money, buy and develop the property, and either run it or sell it.

If the left would calm down, think rationally, and let cooler heads prevail, it would have a better chance to prevail. But that will not happen because if it calmed down, became rational, and let cooler heads prevail, it wouldn't be the left.

  1. They made most of the points I made in a June 30 post, "The generic editorial against Trump's next pick."

    You made it too easy for them, Don. They should have credited you by sharing the byline.

  2. LOL funny that Rodham’s screechwriters stole that line from you!!

    And poor David French must still think he coulda been the president if only this stuff had come out sooner.

  3. The never Trumpers cruise ship has become an ice floe. Like Eskimos of old who can no longer contribute to the tribe, their future is lonely desolation.

  4. Just to make things fun Trump shoupld assign an intern in the DOJ to begin an ongoing project to srite up indictments for every man, woman , and child, whether born or unborn, in Russia.

  5. It's called "Russian" to judgment.

  6. David French? Is the Michael Moore's real name?

  7. There isn't a tin pot dictator alive who wouldn't prefer a Democrat American President. Take Obama sending cash by the pallet-load to the butchers in Iran, for instance.

  8. I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s

    When the Democrats supported slavery?

    If I were a political consultant, what I could do with an ad campaign.

    1. Slavery, then Jim Crow, segregation, the KKK as with Sen Byrd, and lynchings. Also gun control was introduced to keep Black Americans down and defenseless after the Civil War. So now they are trying the latter effort against we deplorables so we can't keep government off our back as the Declaration of Independence enumerated.

  9. Don, that was amazing the way you threw your voice into “Bride of Chucky”! Your lips didn’t move once!
