In keeping with her annual excursion tradition, liberal ny times columnist Maureen Dowd permit her Republican brother Kevin write her Thanksgiving Day column this week.
Kevin Dowd has been delighting conservatives and outraging Dowd’s limousine liberal readership for years now. (personal favored: Kevin’s Christmas 2009 column while he instructed Sarah Palin: “hold up the coolest paintings. all and sundry who annoys Keith Olbermann that lots is a chum to everyone.”)
This year, Kevin discovered a pithy way to summarize why President Trump’s tweeting “may be an powerful protection” – Trump, he writes, “has 43.2 million Twitter fans. The new york instances has3.1 million subscribers.”
Trump got into office due to Congress’s incapacity or unwillingness to do its process. The electorate were so bored stiff, they grew to become to a reality television big name as opposed to the 20 politicians at the menu. (Or 20.5 in case you need to be counted Martin O’Malley.)
However the Republicans do have a problem. They’re in overall manipulate and feature now not exceeded any major regulation. They cannot allow huge egos — theirs and Trump’s — get within the manner of this possibility. They are additionally dealing with a rear-guard assault through Steve Bannon, who brings his own army of candidates with him. I’m no longer a Bannon fan. However he’s conserving Republicans’ ft to the fireplace, which ought to be completed.
The Democrats have their personal problems. Their leaders are all on Medicare and cling to energy like a drunk hugging his bottle of schnapps at final name. Liz and Bernie want the birthday celebration to be greater liberal, as though that had been feasible. If they move any further left, they may be driving in Britain.
Their greater pressing problem is Hillary, now in exile on her endless e-book excursion. She continues to hover above the birthday party like a few giant pterodactyl of Christmas beyond.
As is probably anticipated, the remark segment for Kevin’s column meditated the outrage new york instances’ readers felt at having their secure space invaded by using a Deplorable. Their reactions ran the gamut from: “It’s this form of myth that makes me need to cry into the gravy” to “Maureen Dowd deserves a medal of valor for sitting right down to Thanksgiving dinner each year with this guy.”
