68. I have news for you. You'll be hearing more and more of "this again" as time goes on...

...and the full scope of what happened to put this "administration" in power becomes clear. The Constitutional crisis hasn't begun yet. Calls to annul this "administration's" judicial picks is going to be a mainstream Dem cause sooner than anyone expects. I know this, because I am a moderate, slightly right-of-center Dem, at least by DU's standards, on actual issues. But on the question of the legitimacy--or lack of it--of this "administration", I am getting more and more radical by the day. And if I feel this way, others--lots of others--will, too. A Dem Presidential candidate who ran on this issue--the annulment of Trump's Federal judges--would win the nomination. There isn't any doubt in my mind on this point whatever. And if the media and the Repubs squeal, all the better. Do you think *they* would hesitate, or make "constitutional" arguments, were the shoe on the other foot? They would be plotting a military coup, and taking arms into the streets, and everybody knows it. As for invoking Nixon--nothing he did, not even the Chennault Affair, comes within a million miles of acting as an agent of a foreign despot, with orders to destroy the United States. And that of course is what happened in 2016. And for that matter...one wonders what would have happened, had the Chennault Affair become public knowledge during the Watergate Crisis in 1973-4. I think the reaction to the Nixon Regime would have been more radical than it actually was...
