Diarrhea of the Mouth

Trump admitted that "the Russia thing" was one of the reasons he fired Comey. Another reason was that people were paying too much attention to Comey, the same offense that got Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway exiled to offices in the sub-basement.

Can you imagine Nixon telling a reporter "yeah, I fired Cox because he was investigating the fake Watergate break-in"?

Normally, I'd be snarking about Trump's claim to have authored the phrase "priming the pump," a phase that, when used in an economic content, was around before he was spawned. But this week, that seems like pretty small beer when compared to attempting to kill off the investigation of Trump's ties with Russia.

The "priming the pump" thing is just another clear example of the narcissistic, self-promoting con-man we have "elected". The open question is how many more policy missteps and failures the R's will tolerate before they realize their window is about to slam shut and Pence's palace coup occurs.

Pence and Sessions. That is a problem.

Be careful what we wish for. Nixon walked away and left an entire adminstration in place, fostering the careers of such notables as Cheney and Rumsfeld. The Constitutional Crisis isn't just Drumpf uck.

I just read one suggestion that we win back both chambers in the midterms and impeach both of then simultaneously (Pence has lied his ass off also) then pressure president Pelosi to appoint someone viable as veep before resigning.
Among the obvious examples of trolling for this fantasy scenario was Merrick Garland...
