The theater critic school of “journamalism” is alive and well. After Chuck Todd’s inane post debate comment in 2016, I thought we had reached “Peak Todd.”
Well, I was wrong.
On substance, Democrats got what they wanted. They got him to confirm that he didn't make a charge because of the Justice Department memo. He confirmed that you can still indict him on these charges after he leaves office. And he seemed to confirm the idea that under any other circumstance, he likely would have filed some charges. So they got some substance on what they wanted him -- but it provided such uncomfortable clarity. As they were using him for clarity, he'd somehow fog it up in how he would do certain things. So look, on the optics, this was a disaster.
What are they looking for? Mueller to embrace and then stab Pelosi a la Jon Snow/Danerys? Ross and Rachel to get married and divorced again?
The Republicans held twenty thousand boring Benghazi hearings. I did not see Chuck’s aesthetic critique. And they worked as part of the long term demonization of HRC.
The Watergate hearings had their moments, but there was a lot of boring stuff in between.
This Presidency is a crisis heretofore unknown, with criminal and irrational behavior abounding.
And this idiot says it’s a disaster because of “optics.”
