30 day Diary – The confederacy of boot lickers

NPR’s political reporter Ron Elving wrote a review of Mark Leiboviche’s book “Thank you for your servitude” which no doubt mirrors my view of the Body Snatchers to stole the Party of Lincoln. I particularly appreciated these line:

‘If Leibovich can be occasionally brutal in his assessments, Trump brings out the worst: “Trump has a way of wearing you down,” the author observes. “He invades your habitat, like the opossum that gets into the attic, dies, stinks and attracts derivative nuisances.”

But while Trump remains an eminence throughout, the author’s true subject here is Trump’s stable of enablers and the transformation they have wrought on their party and themselves.”
