Finished reading the first of Ian W. Toll’s trilogy on World War II, Pacific Crucible. Takes the reader from Pearl Harbor to the Battle of the Midway. Puts you right there — on the ship, in the air. From both sides of the conflict.
Did Biden outsmart
“Here’s the dirty little secret: The right has slowly been moving on from Trump. Every few months, polling shows more Republicans view themselves as Republicans, not Trump voters. Every few months, polling shows Republicans are eyeing Ron DeSantis. Every few months, Republicans feel less and less like they have to defend Trump or pay attention to Trump. Every few months, polls show a declining number of Republicans who want Trump to run again. Well, every few months until August 8, 2022, when FBI agents walked into Mar-a-Lago. Now, Republicans are back to circling the wagons.
“A cynical person just might think the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago was designed to do that and bring Trump to the forefront of the 2022 election cycle.”

Judge Remington unintentionally confirms the latest con from Republicans deranged by the Trump syndrome: that Speaker Robin Vos purposefully appointed a low-IQ incompetent so to fumble proving the Stolen Election myth.
“What you’re trying to do is superimpose a level of professionalism on an entity and individual that just doesn’t exist and, if the latter is the case, then all the answers that you ask, even if I send it back to them for a supplemental response again and again and again, we’ll never get to the end of the question because you’re expecting more than what this individual and the organization was prepared — and able — to deliver.”
