Can't wait for Sunday night: You can't say we didn't warn you.
Once we let the press corps start discussing (consensual) sex, that's all they'll want to do, we said.
Too often, it's also the only thing we rubes want to hear about. And our powers of discrimination are amazingly weak in this area.
Consider the letter the New York Times chose to publish today. It's full of standard cant about the current sex chase.
Stormy may have photos of Don! Sadly, it opens like this:
LETTER TO THE NEW YORK TIMES (3/23/18): Re “The Calm Before the Stormy,” by Frank Bruni (column, March 21): We have a former porn star, a former Playboy model and a former “Apprentice” contestant all credibly accusing a president of the United States of sexual predation.Really? Are Stephanie Clifford and Karen McDougal really accusing Donald J. Trump of "sexual predation?"
Even after all these years—even in this "MeToo moment"—we seem to have a very hard time with the concept of consent. And when the Times gets a letter which includes this conflation, the letter gets pushed into print.
Before too long, the letter will make silly claims about the way a non-disclosure agreement relates to Donald Trump's marriage vows. As the letter closes, our alter ego will make a sad statement like this:
LETTER TO THE NEW YORK TIMES (3/23/18): I for one cannot wait for Sunday’s broadcast of the Stormy Daniels interview on “60 Minutes”!He can't wait for Sunday night! Sunday will be so cool!
As we liberals produce such piddle, which the New York Times will print, the disordered man who sits in the White House may be moving toward war. This raises two basic questions:
Is it possible that Donald J. Trump would start a war to tweak an election campaign? Could he be that sick?
Is it possible that he would start a war to undermine the Mueller probe? Could he be that deranged?
Could he be that crazy, that sick? We'll guess the answer could be yes, but we haven't seen these questions discussed. Two months ago, the New York Times (and others) announced that we really shouldn't be discussing such sensitive topics.
Our brain developed long ago as our forebears crawled from the swamp. It wasn't built for these cable news times, with con men eager to interview Clifford for distraction and amusement.
Cooper played the fool last night. Sunday night will likely be worse. Once we let this bullshit start, the children just never stop.
