70. Yes, it was by design. Remember Bannon saying he wanted to "deconstruct the administrative state"?

Remember Grover Norquist saying he wanted to reduce the federal government to the size where it could be drowned in a bathtub, then pull the plug? Remember John Bolton saying the UN was so useless you could take a wrecking ball to the top 10 stories of the building and it would be all to the good?

These evil mf-ers did it all in plain sight, and told us their intent, over a span of at least 40 years. The architects of this catastrophe hate the US government, and public education, and everything else that might be considered the commons, social welfare (ie the social good ) , and the Social Contract.

When Democratic politicians and media people bleat about "the norms," the Social Contract is exactly what they're talking about.

And now Newt Gingrich, one of the most enthusiastic proponents of this destruction, is stuck in Rome (where Callista, wife #3, is ambassador to the Vatican) calling for the full might of the US federal government to be marshalled as it was in WW II for this terrifying battle. Well tough shit, Newt, you had your part in this and it is too late. Try praying.
