I’ll Bet They Rediscover the Homeless Any Day Now

2 December 2016

Amazing how things change. Suddenly, after eight years of being told that it was racist treason to criticize the President, we are once again hearing that “dissent is the highest form of patriotism.” Democrats are suddenly rediscovering the wisdom of checks and balances against an imperial presidency, and regretting the nuking of the filibuster in the Senate. Suddenly up is down, old is new, and everything is backwards. I wouldn’t be surprised if anti-war rallies make a comeback next year after their eight year absence. Even The New York Times has decided to rededicate itself actively investigating and reporting on the president, in a couple of months, rather than just being a brown-nosed mouthpiece for the administration. Whatever could have happened to cause so many people to reverse their stances?
