“There’s the Muellermania paradox — a highly emotional reaction to the way Trump seems to have been highly emotional. (Have you heard he said “I’m fucked” when he found out they’d appointed the special counsel?!!! That seems like a perfectly normal reaction to me but a lot of people are hyperventilating about how cahraaazzzeeee it is. Are they hyperventilaters mentally sound enough to be trusted?)”
—Bloggress and law prof Ann Althouse, commenting on the Mueller Report freakout.
I’m sitting here trying to get the Red Sox out of their slump, and Friday traffic here, as usual, has slowed to a trickle in the afternoon, and I tried to post a link on Facebook, encouraged by a commenter here who said he had been successful, only to be, once again, told by Our Social Media Masters that I am unworthy, so I’m going to put up uncharacteristically brief posts as they occur to me. The all-time record for posts here is seven. I should be able to beat that. I’ll read them.
The Red Sox are already losing 2-0.
Ann is essentially apolitical, but frequently annoyed, as I am, at the irresponsible, unfair and biased attacks on the President. Democrats are embarrassing themselves, pundits are embarrassing themselves, “resistance” celebrities (like Rob Reiner–what made you this way, Rob?) and my Facebook friend bitter-enders are embarrassing themselves.
But are you embarrassing yourself when you act like as ass and everyone you hang out with is behaving the same way and thinks its fine?
It’s like whether you are really blogging when nobody can share your trenchant ethics analysis on Facebook….a tree falling silently in the woods…
