If you are a fan of graphic novels then you will know about the travel between alternate realities….you know where everything is similar except for some small thing that changes everything.
Now for as long as I can remember the GOP has been the Law and Order party…..a platform strong on the rule of law…..and the Dems were those, according to the Conservs, that were soft on the rule of law.
Somewhere after watching the antics of the GOP in the last year we all stepped through some fog and into an alternate universe.
The aggressive Republican attacks on the FBI are the latest sign — if one were needed — that President Donald Trump has upended the longstanding norms of Washington, as he and his allies in Congress seek to undermine the one institution of government that conservatives have typically seen as a bastion of integrity and law-and-order.
Since at least the dawn of the New Deal, Republicans have excoriated any number of government entities (the Tennessee Valley Authority, the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) as woolly-headed, hyper-regulatory and riddled with liberals — or worse.
And who would have imagined 40 years ago that the GOP would be defending Russia and attacking our main law enforcement agency?
I am still scratching my head……the same people that attacked me for saying anything remotely positive about Russia are now on Team Russia and are never saying anything negative about the situation with Russia.
The people that chanted “America: Love It Or Leave It” are now basically saying “Leave Russia Alone”…..who knew such a reversal could or would take place?
