Famed journalist Carl Bernstein noted recently that we are hip deep in a cold civil war in this country. He is of course right. Facts and principles mean little these days, it is all about money and power. Republicans are holding together behind their stalwart leader, it's just Trump being Trump, the dems were out to get him from day one, blah, blah, blah. But I wonder if the shoe was on the other foot, how would they react? Let's say President Kamala Harris asked the government of Monaco for a little dirt on her political rival Mike Pence in exchange for a little moolah and the media found out about it. You think the GOP would give her a pass? Or if President Joe Biden called Republicans human scum as Trump called democrats this morning. Do you think that things will ever approach normal in this country again after this abomination of a presidency? Conservatives, you have had your wishes answered with President Trump, nary an elected GOP official will offer a discouraging word. Not advisable, not impeachable. Trump's behavior must be acceptable now. So just own it all later. We've seen how your policy vision turns out. We will remember.
