Mueller’s not here to save us.
He’s not here to overturn the election. He’s not here to hand back the spine the GOP willingly ripped out of its party and tossed into the landfill of history.
He’s not gonna fix this, for the very simple reason that this isn’t how it got broke.
America didn’t get broke because Donald Trump is up to his eyeballs in Russian mob money.
America got broke because Republicans decided to take over the country 20 years ago and Democrats, with the exception of Howard Dean First of His Name, mostly said okay as long as we can keep our committee chairmanships. America got broke because keeping our powder dry and not looking like filthy hippies was more important than standing up for Americans and American values.
“We’ll give you the blanket ability to wage war across the globe however you see fit, grant retroactive immunity to anyone who spies on anyone,” Congress said, “and by the way here is a tax cut or two because we, also, love ‘business,’ but for God’s sake stop calling us commie traitor pedophiles on Fox News.”
That’s worked out well.
America got broke because we decided to fetishize “taxpayer money” over “American lives.” Mueller isn’t here to fix that.
I’d never tell anyone not to pop popcorn and champagne right now. I’m not saying we shouldn’t celebrate criminals and traitors — especially ones this dumb — turning on each other and going to jail. The members of this administration that aren’t going to die in federal prison will die in WitSec under the names of Pete and Martha, a nice couple in southeastern Utah who have four beagles and always bring salad to the church picnic. That’s something to cheer for. One less scumbag on the street always is.
But the GOP can turn around and do this to us again tomorrow if they keep the statehouses and Congress and the way I know that is that they’ve done it before. Richard Nixon should have been the end of this party but here we are again, with a bunch of dumb bagmen fighting over who is the biggest butthole. Roger Stone’s even here.
We keep letting them back up because we think law enforcement, the goddamn FBI, is here to save us. I’ll give you a minute to stop laughing but then you’d better get back to figuring out who represents you in your state legislature and if it’s a Republican figuring out how you can change that.
