    Just when you think they can't get any crazier, the NYT Daily Fish Wrap & Dog's Biffy publishes this gem:

    The Great Republican Abdication

    "So all the “fake news” was true. A hostile foreign power intervened in the presidential election, hoping to install Donald Trump in the White House. The Trump campaign was aware of this intervention and welcomed it. And once in power, Trump tried to block any inquiry into what happened.

    Never mind attempts to spin this story as somehow not meeting some definitions of collusion or obstruction of justice. The fact is that the occupant of the White House betrayed his country. And the question everyone is asking is, what will Democrats do about it?"

    I've often wondered where the Leftist lunatics on this Forum get their inspiration and suspected they must be running dry, but here you go guys: A big shot in the arm from one of your favorite rags! They've openly called you to action, so get with it!

    Without a shred of doubt, there is a very prevalent and spreading TDS. The symptoms are, loss of contact with reality, utter, abject subservience to the Dear Leader, and almost incomprehensible aggression against any and all not so afflicted.

    The political effects are as stark (from the OP's link):

    Once you accept this reality, two conclusions follow.

    First, anyone expecting bipartisanship in dealing with the aftermath of the Mueller report — in particular, anyone suggesting that Democrats should wait for G.O.P. support before proceeding with investigations that might lead to impeachment — is being deluded. Trump is giving the Republican establishment what it wants, and it will stick with him no matter what.

    Second, it’s later than you think for American democracy. Before 2016 you could have wondered whether Republicans would, in extremis, be willing to take a stand in defense of freedom and rule of law. At this point, however, they’ve already taken that test, and failed with flying colors.​

    The author sheds no light on the monster the GOP created since the beginnings of the Southern Strategy, and are now condemned to ride it, for if they try to abandon it, they will be eaten alive.

    Wow, more evidence! Extreme parroting of a hack op-ed author, "the sky is falling", rampant projection, and no original thoughts.
