Of Course It Can Happen. The Groundwork's Already Been Laid.

Richard Cohen has a "this can't happen here" about the fall of the EU and NATO under the combined machinations of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

He's quite wrong, of course. It's more than likely to happen, unless the Republicans in the Congress get some body parts implanted.

A spine,

some guts,

and some balls.

Which isn't going to happen in time to save things, of course. Even if Putin didn't have Trump by the short hairs, it still would come out the same. In his soul, Trump is a Saddam Hussein. He's always eager to point out the shortcomings of our traditional friends, while he closes his eyes to the crimes of his friends in the Club of Tyrants.

Meanwhile, Trump's base still believes that "he's draining the swamp", despite all evidence to the contrary.

Congressional Republicans are basically snails that leave behind trails of slime after exiting swamp sowing discord and lies.

It’s a good thing that snails can’t sue you for defamation because you compared them to Republicans.
