Days 111-122(ish): Eyes on the Ball, People

Yes. It’s been a busy couple of weeks, what with Cheeto Mussolini (not my coinage) proving to be just as incompetent at obstruction of justice as he is with keeping state secrets. Lefty-Twitter has also been all abuzz over whether Louise Mensch is a crackpot conspiracy theorist or prophet, as she has been asserting that IMPEACHMENT IS ALREADY UNDERWAY (AND I WILL SUE ANYONE WHO CALLS ME A CRANK OR STEALS MY SCOOPS, BTW).

So, yes, the administration continues to be a clusterfucktastrophe™ and seems more and more likely to bumble its way into impeachment. But from the point of view of policy that affects of the lives of millions of people, we need to keep our eyes on the ball (and not that shiny orb thing, whatever the hell it is). The Senate is still working on a counterpart to the Dickensian AHCA bill proposed by the House. Despite all that performative harrumphing about the House version being DOA in the Senate, the GOP could be planning another stealth operation to gut Obamacare while Americans are busy arguing about whether Trump bowed to the Saudis or merely gave a definitively manly America-First curtsy.
