Ordinarily, we don’t jump every time a brushfire breaks out across the desiccated landscape of the former president*’s brain if, for no other reason than the fact that it would be all we did here in the shebeen, and life is too damn short. However, there was a general conflagration breaking out this weekend and it is worthy of note because it seemed to leap into the desiccated landscapes of the brains of his allies, too.
First, Fulton County (Ga.) Inmate No. P01135809 suggested that former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley be executed for the treasonous act of preventing him from starting a war in order to stay in office, as detailed in a long piece in The Atlantic. (In truth, and in the abstract, having the JCS chief contacting China to reassure it regarding the ostensible commander-in-chief made me a little nervous.)
