Michael Goodwin's Very Accurate Assessment...

Michael Goodwin is right that, "America is being scandalized by four enormous events that are happening simultaneously. By scandalized, I mean that people are shocked and outraged at what they regard as breaches of acceptable behavior or morality.

"That wouldn’t be a problem if the vast majority were scandalized by the same things. That’s not the America we have. The vicious polarization stems from the fact that the country is split almost exactly in half over what people are outraged about." (

He lists the four scandalizing events as, first, Donald Trump’s boorish Presidency, although he correctly notes; "Still, Trump won the election fairly and the economy is booming, yet too many Americans can’t accept those truths. Their attempts to bring him down define the three other scandalizing events."

Those other three scandalizing events are, the implosion of our mainstream media. Goodwin's observation, "For the latest example, look at how CNN is supporting one of its anti-Trump stories even though its source, lawyer Lanny Davis, says he gave the network wrong information. So the world knows the story is wrong, but CNN won’t admit it.

"Instead of making Trump look good, CNN would rather make itself look bad and confirm Trump’s assertion that it promotes fake news. How crazy is that?"

The next event he notes is the behavior of some federal agencies. The DoJ, the FBI and the CIA, that all, in his words, "took liberties that were morally offensive, and possibly illegal," noting that some of those bad actors were "dumb enough" to put some of those things in writing!

The final scandalizing event Michael Goodwin notes is the foolish reaction of Democrats.

In Goodwin's view, the "Dems’ answers to his presidency can be divided into two: political assassination and political suicide."

He's also correct that the "political assassination" group has gone all in on the Mueller investigation, which has yet to come up with any evidence of collusion, Lanny Davis' misinforming CNN, not withstanding. The Manafort trial revealed no evidence of collusion, nor has apparently anything gleaned from the Cohen indictment.

Goodwin's right that those prospects of Mueller proving collusion are remote, which is why, in what looks like hysterical desperation that group has retreated to the hope that Stormy Daniels might bring the Trump administration to an end.

Consider that no one got all that worked up over Bill Clinton having sex in the Oval Office. Even the presumed coercion wasn't seen as a big deal, even by the National Organization for Women! NOT their finest hour.

According to Goodwin, the "political suicide" Dems are those who've embraced going even further Left. Let's see if that changes if Buffalo voters put the daffy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, OR if they actually vote in Joe Crowley, who is STILL on the ballot for November.
