I remember the constant “But… but… SCOTUS!” when people complained about how cartoonishly horrible Trump was during the campaign. And, hey, that gamble paid off. We got a really good SCOTUS pick.
But apparently that’s about it from a Trump administration and a Republican controlled House and Senate. It really seems like the Republicans were caught completely off guard by Trump winning and had no plans beyond being an opposition party. I mean, this health care stuff, people have been talking about that for a while. Like years. They probably should have had some sort of plan ready. But nope. I’m a little more hopeful they can come up with something on taxes… but not that hopeful.
So, so useless. It’s why I just can’t get in these partisan fights anymore. What’s the point? Is there any chance of anything being accomplished?
But on the plus side for the Republicans, attack ads will be hard. “We have to stop these radical, extremists Republicans from… not doing anything in particular.”
So what’s the path forward here? What’s the rallying cry for 2018? Neither the Democrats or the Republicans have a particularly good case to make about anything. Best slogan I can come up for them is “Embrace irrelevancy.” I kinda like that. If the government were more irrelevant and we just paid it less attention, that’s a good thing. And, frankly, I’d kinda like to talk about something other than Trump one day.
I don’t like solving puzzles, since I have a hard time thinking around corners, especially in 3D. This one was no exception. Mostly I just wanted to see how it was done, and knowing was worth the time spent watching the video for me.
