These are the days of The Crazy: "These are the days of miracle and wonder."
Long ago and far away, we believe Paul Simon said that.
By contrast, these are the days of The Crazy. Has our discourse ever been as crazy as it is right now?
Last Friday morning, the Washington Post presented this report. In the report, a woman claimed that Roy Moore had molested her when she was 14 years old.
That was a very serious charge. Across the journalistic landscape, it touched off The Crazy.
The Crazy has been voluminous ever since. We couldn't come close to getting to all The Crazy this week.
A continental nation can't long endure if everyone's going to be this crazy. We'll leave you with this point:
On the whole, our upper-end press corps has been venal, self-serving and largely crazy for a very long time now.
On balance, Crazy is what they do best. Crazy, plus working from script. No nuance allowed!
These are the days of Putin's great triumphs! Not to mention all the scuffling in search of the children's next jobs.
Next week: Believe the accusers!
