Here's how whirlwind the news is these days. About 10 days ago, I wrote here that I had another column planned, but some major news broke, so I put the story on hold. That story that broke, by the way, was Attorney General William Barr releasing his summary/not summary let on the Mueller Report. And since that day, the stories have just come flying off the shelves, and that original article has been pushed back so far that -- even though it's just 10 days ago -- it's old news and pointless at this point.
But even being "out of date," the point of it does show how far off the ledge the far right and Republican Party has gotten in its melting down against liberals and Democrats while trying to shore up its sinking ship of state, The U.S.S. Trump, and its failing fascist brand,
Without any comment, because none (especially at this point) are needed, these are all headlines from a single page that appeared on March 24 on the home page of RawStory, a standard, thoughtful, admittedly left-leaning news site I tend to check out. I am not making this up. This is not The Onion. It is not The National Enquirer or Breitbart News. I didn't change one word. It's just 10 headlines -- nothing more -- of that one day, word-for-word.
To be clear, these aren't the only headlines on the page. It's maybe half of them. There was other news mixed in. And certainly an editor chose to feature these stories. The point here though isn't that this is "all" the far-right thinks about, enables and does. It isn't. But that any of this is news ever is ghastly -- let alone all on the same day alone speaks volumes about far-right derangement.
