What the fuck has gotten into my sector of political life?
Not only have most of them abandoned the OCGE, they’re also writing his political obituary, a mere 76 days into his reign.
No, I don’t like what he did, and I don’t like the advice he’s taking, and I don’t like the advisors who are giving him the advice, and this has a chance to wind up being very counterproductive and a borderline disaster.
But I’m not going to run inside and hide just because a little light drizzle has started.
It’s like our people turned into a bunch of drama queens in the last few days.
Alternatively, the sudden shocking disappointment coming from my neck of the woods is just a function of our (but not my) reading too much into the OCGE, making him out to be the kind of Pepe that I knew he never was. Let me put it to you this way: As I think about it, I have to admit that there’s a part of me that isn’t surprised that Trump took the actions today against Syria that he did.
Also, just because I don’t like any of what OCGE is doing and I wish he wouldn’t have done it, by the same token, I’m not going to knee jerk believe that Assad’s reported latest use of chemical weapons is a false flag. I think he did use them, but there was a better way to deal with it. Remember, Assad’s no angel, it’s just that he’s less bad than the only other credible alternative (ISIS).
Prediction: Next week, he’ll do something we really like, and all the unnamed drama queens will pretend like this week never happened and they never said or wrote anything they did this week.
Another thing: In spite of this, there’s no way I’m going to turn my back on my sector. Because it’s the way I think, and our people are our people. And, on the substance of that which is turning them into drama queens, they are correct: These missile strikes were the wrong thing to do. Any of you shit disturbers thinking that you’re going to drive a wedge between your ever-lovin’ blogmeister and these unnamed individuals just because of this — Miss me by 500 yards with that silliness.
