There's no secret that Bilyous and I have been the loyal opposition since last Novemeber. At all times and places we have always been in the minority in the lockeroom because the preponderance of membership is White Anglo Saxon Protestant Republican.
Relax. This is not an indictment. Just a fact. About 10% of the opinions here are liberal opinions and we are used to being overwhelmed by the sheer volume of numbers who oppose us.
Okay fair enough.
Last December after the Russian influence began to unravel that discussion had reached another level. While both of us felt that whatever our political feelings were ..... the Russian influenced trumped (excuse the pun) all other political theories. The folks in here decided that we were using Russan influence as an excuse for Hillary losing an election she should have won.
Believe it or don't believe it but this is not so.
Bilyous, after being frustrated, left the lockeroom when it was obvious his message and his sincerity were not getting through. Everyone wanted to pile on. Yes we lost the election. Yes our candidate was probably the worst candidate we could put up. Yes, we are humbled by the electorate.
But the Russia question didn't go away.
I emailed Bil privately a few times and we tried to decide how to respond to this avalanche of lockeroom back patting. Bil finally left.
I decided to stay just to see what would transpire. But my participation has been minimal.
Before we left we tried to figure out how we could answer all the Trump folks. In the end we BOTH decided that all we had to do was say nothing and let Trump implode on his own.
It was not necessary to say anything or do anything. Trump did it to himself. And the anchor of incompetence is sinking him deeper and deeper in the mud.
This is not over. It may be far from over.
But if ever anyone did this to himself it was Donald Trump. We didn't have to do or say anything.
Karma is a bitch.
