It'll all be fine if tRump just admits his mistake, fires Bolton, reinstates our compliance with the treaty, apologizes to the mullahs for mis-characterizing their intentions and behavior, and tells Obama "Hey you were actually pretty smart, for a black guy."

Grumpy Cat’s visage was named the Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards, beating out “Gangnam Style” and “Harlem Shake.” Many memes come and go, but her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, turned the cat’s face into the center of a thriving business.

Her likeness appeared on nearly 900 items in an official shop, she made a television advertisement for “Honey Nut Cheerios,” and she became the official “spokescat” of Friskies, a cat food brand. The cat starred in a Lifetime Christmas movie, “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” she was on the cover of New York Magazine, and her book hit No. 7 on The New York Times’s advice, how-to and miscellaneous best-seller list.

Estimates ranged widely on how much Grumpy Cat was worth, though Ms. Bundesen disputed a 2014 report that the cat had earned her $100 million. In 2018, Ms. Bundesen won $710,000 in a copyright infringement suit against a coffee company that made Grumpy Cat Grumppuccino.

"grisly claims" ≠ baseless assertions, or, as some call them, "lies."

Skocpol warned of “mechanistic over-optimism,” writing that “things will look very different if Trump is re-elected, as he may very well be.” The current state of politics “is no ordinary cyclical turn,” she notes. “I would rank this period as one of the most conflictual since the late 1960s and early 1930s and the one with the greatest potential for actual regime change since the Civil War.”

Anybody suffering from mechanistic over-optimism? I know I'm not.

Also: Van Morrison's album "Common One" is pretty terrible.

Makes you realize, somewhat sadly, that tRump has never voluntarily read a poem. How sad and empty a life would be without it.
