A Peaceful Day...

I woke up this morning with a sense of peace, for the first time in months.

I knew nothing terrible was going to happen.

dt has passed the high point on his ride around the wheel of fortune, and he's on the way down.

Monday: The FBI is investigating his campaign for possible collusion with Russians.  Good!  

Tuesday:  His nomination of Gorsuch to a seat on the Supreme Court is in jeopardy because 45 himself is in jeopardy.  Even if the nomination got out of the Judiciary Committee, even if he were approved in the House, still Senate Democrats will filibuster for a month or two--and in that amount of time, dt's presidency may become so discredited that everyone will recognize he doesn't deserve to have his nominee approved.

Wednesday:  An independent investigation of dt campaign collusion with Russian spies is all but guaranteed after the televised spectacle of Rep. Devin Nunes putting the House Intelligence Committee on hold to run off and brief 45 on upcoming bad news.

Thursday--today:  Word is that Republicans don't have enough votes to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act.  In fact, by late afternoon the vote had been postponed "until Friday."  Whether Republicans can agree on some kind of replacement plan by tomorrow evening is doubtful.  

As a result, today was a peaceful day.  Don't worry, be happy.

Vanity Fair summed up the general mood of the nation with this article, "The Trump-Russia Scandal Is Beginning to Snowball" in its March 23 issue.  Thank you, Abigail Tracy.

I worked on my memoir for the first time since January 31.  (When the government is in chaos, I can't write.)
