If ponies rode men & grass ate cows,
And cats were chased into holes by the mouse …
If summer were spring & the other way round
Then all the world would be upside down.

If you had a pulse during history class, you would recognize that passage from the Revolutionary War era, specifically the Battle of Yorktown. It was a popular drinking song & was played as the Americans defeated the British, which was one of those “who’d a thunk it” moments. Whichever musician thought about playing that song & the time, the place, the situation, I salute him.
The rise of Donald Trump in 2016 & his subsequent election brought that song back to me. Who’d a thunk it, seriously. Wasn’t Hillary Rodham Clinton’s election a DONE DEAL? I also think of it now, with all the talking heads & hyperventilating social media/blogosphere folks climaxing over the Mueller investigations. Uh, excuse me, please … we’re talking about President Donald J. Trump, who lives, thrives, expands, glows on negativity. There is a chance (speaking softly here) he may slither out of this, freedom intact.
This is a man elected to the highest office after the Access Hollywood tapes. Why this still astounds me is silly, but it does. The Russians can be blamed for a lot but ultimately Mr & Ms American cast his/her ballot on election day. The Republicans are masterful at enabling whatever/whomever propels the means to the ends of their agenda production.
There is no moral compass in the GOP. They are proactive while the Democrats are reactive. Grab the oars of the boat first & you can steer it anywhere you please. If it is leaky, find some sucker to keep bailing.
I do hope President Trump pays the price for what he has done to our government, our country. But will he? He has a habit of not paying any price. Others do, not him. I will not be surprised if this is one more situation where he doesn’t. Nothing surprises me about this man or the Republicans.
Commonsense plays no part in modern day politics. Looking at it from a logical view point is unnatural, does not compute. This is the new normal.
Cue the pipes & drums, please.
