Frankly, it keeps getting Richer: Let's recall the latest glorious statement by "the great Frank Rich:"
Frank Rich, March 19, 2017: In Portsmouth, Ohio, the epicenter of opiate-pill mills and of Quinones’s book, Trump won by a landslide. As he did in Ohio’s Butler County, where Vance grew up and which now ranks eighth among all American counties in the increase in the rate of drug-related deaths between 2004 (when opioid fatalities first spiked) and 2014.Frankly, we're just saying.
As polls uniformly indicate, nothing that has happened since November 8 has shaken that support.
Quinnipiac University/Poll, March 22, 2017: President Donald Trump is losing support among Republicans, white voters and men, leaving him with a negative 37-56 percent job approval rating from American voters, his worst score ever, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.
Rich has been like this forever. But our tribe hangs on his every word, as their tribe is inclined to do with an assortment of seers.
Despite all this, we call Them dumb, insist that We are quite brilliant. This is the age-old logic of tribe, a logic in which our own tribe is deeply invested.
Our own tribe hit rock bottom last year. In line with the age-old logic of tribe, our tribe is unable to grasp this.
(Mandated tribal reaction: Why in the world would anyone engage in such odd disparagement?)
