Dan Rather on FB:

And then the dam broke.

A flood is coming that will shape the future of our Republic in ways no one can predict. Except that the speed with which this has all happened, just over a hundred days into President Donald Trump's dumpster fire of an administration, means it was all very predictable. And no one who played a role in normalizing this President should be allowed to forget it.

We have news that the Department of Justice, under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, will appoint a Special Counsel to investigate the Russia interference scandal. Apparently the President was only given a 30 minute heads up, and it came while he was interviewing new heads for the FBI. The Special Counsel will be former FBI Director Robert Mueller. These types of investigations tend to stir up more dirt than anyone thought was there. We will see if that happens now.

The stock market plummets. The White House staff is in chaos. The chorus of Republicans suddenly eager to be on the right side of history gets louder. Most of the time Washington moves in slow motion - except when it doesn't. And this moment is one of those times. We are living in a news cycle that can be measured in nanoseconds.

And amidst the news, another blockbuster report by the Washington Post. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy apparently said last June that he thought Putin pays Trump. At which point Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who was also there, stopped the conversation and swore those who were present to secrecy. When the Post asked about the incident, spokesmen for both representatives denied the story on the record. When they were informed that the Post reporters had heard a tape of the exchange, they changed their tune - saying it was a joke.

What all this makes clear is that the concerns which now threaten the integrity of our government were well known and played for cynical theater. Well, the curtain may be coming down on this act of this tragedy. New actors wait to take the stage for a drama for which the script is yet to be written.

That fucking liar has nothing to offer anyone with ethics. He can't fade away quickly enough.

Some people are smarter than others, Pkr. You need to accept your limitations.

Oh, look, little PkrBoy is having a tantrum because somebody said something he didn't like. He wants his 85-year old neighbor to go away and the neighbor is just not doing it. He's still at the party, sitting with the grown-ups, wearing those seven Peabody awards, talking and laughing at little PkrBoy's silly friends. Poor little PkrBoy, he's such a crybaby. He doesn't have any awards and he's so jealous he's having a fit.

Run to mommy, little PkrBoy, she'll dry your tears and hug you to her bosom. Won't that be nice, little PkrBoy? You'll feel all safe and protected and won't have to deal with reality.

Poor, little PkrBoy, when will he ever grow up?

In some ways he's the poster child for fake news. No fact checking... no validating rumors... opinion masquerading as fact. Media is now a confirmation bias loop... and y'all gobble it up like it's mother's cooking.

Look everybody, little PkrBoy made a joke about himself. He accused someone  else of "opinion masquerading as fact". What a funny little PkrBoy. Ha Ha Ha!

And now he's learned a new term--confirmation bias loop. Isn't that cute? He picked it up from academics but he says he hates academics. He uses it all the time. He wants the grown-ups to think he's a smart little PkrBoy, but they know better. Isn't he a silly little child? And he wonders why no one takes him seriously.

Go hide under the blankets in your room, little PkrBoy, play with your toys and pout. Your huggy bear loves you.
