Well, imagine that. FBI director James Comey today announces “oops, never mind, nothing to see here, move along.” All the furor generated by him, heralded by Fox News, the Trump campaign, and wingnuts everywhere, turns out to be, to quote Shakespeare:
“but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
The damage done to our democracy by idiots, poor players, and walking shadows is not insignificant. It’s going to take a long time, and a lot of hard work from the next several Democratic Presidents and Congresses to fix.
Starting Tuesday evening, I hope we begin the process. Then, on January 20, 2017 we can really get started, with Madam President.
