Excitingly, Loughlin in chains: In a new post, Kevin Drum is asking the world's best and most obvious question.
Excitingly and sexily, the question to which we refer involves Lori Loughlin. More specifically, and more excitingly, it involves Lori Loughlin in chains!
Long story short:
Federal prosecutors have now found a way to charge Loughlin with money-laundering. They couldn't get Trump on that charge down through all those years, but now they've apparently found a way to nail a Hollywood star!
Our elites are virtually all out of order. That seems to include federal prosecutors, many of whom have been establishing the framework for "cable news" discussions over the past several years.
Their principal skill often seems to be this: Sifting through our ten million federal laws in search of all-new-and-improved, creative ways to throw disfavored people in jail.
It isn't just the famously upper-class New York Times. It isn't just Donald J. Trump and his spy-spouting pal, William Barr.
Our elites are virtually all out of order. It's the obvious mark of a failing culture, of a society which is unknowingly awaiting the start of Mister Trump's War of Frustration.
The rewards have long been too damn high. We're speaking not just of piles of money, but also of cultural fame.
