Where’s Rudy? Where is he when you really need him? Need him? Yes. For the buffoon’s comic relief from the mounting national tension peaking over the coming week of revelation, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller is supposed to release his report on Treasongate…and our Dear Leader will meet North Korea’s Dear Leader in Hanoi to bring even more peace on earth…and contrite felon Michael Cohen will tell Congress and us all (or some of us) of the Trump Administration’s dirty doings over the last two-plus years.
I wish I could say I looked forward to this imminent three-ring circus. Instead, I feel like a character caught in the grim close of a Kafka novel edited by Samuel Beckett. Talk about fear and trembling!
You and I may hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. That nothing will be resolved and we remain a nation in pieces with our democracy imperiled—all because the Republican party has been taken over by racists and hate-radio anarchists, abetted by gutless Republican members of the United States Senate.
That said, if we do survive with our democracy intact and return to our former selves, we will owe it, ironically, to three Republicans with FBI backgrounds—Special Counsel Robert Mueller, former Director James Comey, and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Keep those Medals of Freedom handy, just in case.
Only now am I beginning to fully understand that old Chinese malediction, “May you live in interesting times.” I am. We are.
