Next: "I learned a lot from Adolph Hitler"?

Well folks, The difference between this disease and economic policy is that faulty economic policy takes months or even years to manifest itself. This disease takes days to manifest itself, and very shortly we are going to be seeing the results of this premature opening in many areas.

Then the media is going to report this, shaking their collective heads, and repeating Republican mantras such as “we certainly didn’t see this coming”. Folks like Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell will be faux-aghast at this development. Quietly shaking their heads, they will opine that perhaps the president is not pursuing the exact correct course in all this.

Recently, I watch the film Network, for perhaps the 20th time, and decided that we need “a moment”. We need a moment where in a reporter stands up and says you are a liar. This is the Joseph Welch moment that is required here to deal with a sociopath like this. Courtesy, decency, gentility, and politesse will not work. What is needed is a verbal bazooka. But I hold out little hope that these single funds will do this.

Never forget that in fact, nice guys finish last.

1. There have been so many of those "moments" that it has turned into background noise.

Yesterday's performance on the lawn should have been another one.
