Il Cosa Nostra
Someone yesterday made the brilliant observation that this was like the scene in The Godfather when "Frankie Pants'" brother Vincenzo is brought back from Italy and Frankie clams up during the Senate trial. Omerta or you know who gets it.
A brutal but effective scorched earth strategy. And I started thinking about just how much this modern day Shakespearean tragedy of an election resembled the Godfather and the machinations of the mafia.
Two fellows who still have the audacity to attack Hillary Clinton. Giuliani says everybody cheats and that the matter is between him and his priest. I am sure that Newt has been similarly forgiven.
In Kellyanne Conway we have the perfect enabler Kay Adams, as played by Diane Keaton. See nothing, no nothing, but all the time it is right in front of their face.
There is of course a war going on right now, at least in the GOP. Everybody to the mattress rooms. This thing is going to get real ugly.
