With each new day, come fresh atrocities from Trump -- in this case the Nixonian firing of FBI director James Comey. And I find myself getting weary, knowing that the Republican party will continue their complicity with our reality show despot, making positive change or even a modicum of accountability very unlikely. So I muttered to myself this morning that I just don't care any more. But of course I do care. I've never managed the trick of being apolitical as in the "I never vote, it only encourages the bastards" school of thought. This means my task must be to care and not care at the same time. I'll let you know how that goes.
Laughing is part of the answer. Someone in the comments section at the Boston Globe suggested that the new director will be Jared Kushner. I gave that a "like." And many writers have observed that the administration's ludicrous rationale, meant to convince us rather than make us guffaw, is that Comey was too mean to Hillary Clinton! You can't make this shit up, right?
