A Reminder about the Russians
It’s like people are congenitally incapable of learning. The media are bursting with the endless speculation as to why Comey was fired. Nobody has been able to interiorize a simple fact: Putin wants to see the US in utter disarray to bolster his argument that democracy always leads to chaos.
That’s what he wants. Chaos, disruption, confusion. And these days he gets exactly what he wants in the US.
There is no other goal beyond the chaos. The chaos is the end in itself.
I don’t have the slightest doubt that Putin is over the moon about the investigation of the Russian involvement in the US election. If the investigation stalls, I’m sure he’ll feed it. This is why I hate Maddow with her dumb show. There wasn’t a peep out of her about Russians when it could have had a positive impact. But now, when this talk of Russians does nothing but feed Putin’s ego, she can’t shut up.
If Trump is impeached, this will do zero good to us (Mr. Fanatic Pence, hello) but will make Putin ultra happy and strengthen him to keep messing with the electoral process in the US.
