The Widdershins

Filmishmish is an Arabic term meaning “in the time of the apricots” or “when the apricots bloom”, which is something akin to the English phrase “when pigs fly.” It seems as if we Progressive Democrats live in the time of apricots. We are filmishmish flotsam.

Let’s review where we are. With the Republican Party skulking behind closed doors cooking up the greatest transfer of wealth in human history from the poorest, oldest, and sickest to the richest Americans, what are Democrats doing?

Like zombies in the express lane of the lobotomy clinic drive-thru, one set of Democrats are shuffling around mumbling about a special election in a Republican +20 district in Georgia. While another set of self-serving insurrectionists are trying to depose Nancy Pelosi. Yet another set is second-guessing and flirting with Trumpian populism masquerading as BernieBroism. And not to be forgotten, we have the Alt-Left cross-pollinating with the Alt-Right, thereby erasing any semblance of a difference.

Here’s the deal – the loss in Georgia wasn’t the end of the world. Losing sucks. I hate losing, but a win in Georgia would have been the equivalent of a sugar high to a diabetic – dangerous and injurious to our long-term health.

Let’s break it down. First and foremost, Democrats, while losing, are over-performing in these special elections. There is a good piece by Dave Wasserman, no Democratic fluffer, in the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. The report centers on the Partisan Voter Index which measures each district by the spreads in the last two presidential races relative to the nation as a whole.

The Voter Index for the five special elections this year equates to over-performance by the Democrats of 8 points. If Democrats were to over-perform in the 2018 mid-terms at that rate, the Democrats would pick up 80 seats.

Eighty seats!

Realistically, that isn’t going to happen since incumbents are going to be more firmly entrenched than special election nominees, but Democrats are in a strong position in 2018. In fact, we are in a much stronger position than Republicans were in 2010 or 2014.

Democrats allowed the Georgia “expectations game” to froth up into a bad case of hydrophobia. The political consultants sold a bill of goods. There was plenty of money to support the wrong conclusions. The truth no one wanted to believe was this: Hillary was the high water mark for Democrats in the district. Surprise! Hillary was a good candidate. Hillary lost the district by 1½% and a presidential race is always of higher concern than a congressional contest.

That is not to say Ossoff was a bad candidate, but he looked like he just asked his daddy to borrow the car for an after school math club meeting. He didn’t live in the district allowing him to be “otherized” as “not one of us”. Catnip to the tribal instincts of the district.

This brings us to the next major point – tribalism. The base of the Republican Party is full-blown tribalistic and ethnocentric. As such they are enthralled by authoritarianism. Dolt 45 scratches that itch.

Here is a piece of long journalism on tribal epistemology. The frightening aspect of tribalism is that truth is no longer operative. There is no fact outside what is good for the tribe. Hypocrisy is suspended. It is no longer offensive if it furthers the tribal cause. The world exists in terms of “us” versus “them”. The “others” threaten the tribe. It is not enough to defeat the “others,” they must be annihilated.

When you overlay the Republican tribal mentality against the failures of Dolt 45 and his merry band of henchmen, a monumental case of counter-intuitive logic appears like Stonehenge out of the mist.

The tangelo wearing a kangaroo stretch scrotum continues to hold his base because he hasn’t done anything yet. He’s signed some fancy press statements about thinking about doing things, but he has not yet done anything. Nada. Zero. Zilch.

Not until the dissonance occurs between promises and actions will the tribe fall out of like with his Orangeness. For instance, let’s say twenty million people lose health care so that one million rich people can get a tax cut. That is liable to cause more than a little economic angst to creep into the tribal zeitgeist. So much for economic populism.

This is why the Georgia loss is a positive development. Anything that builds confidence for an agenda that has no constituency is blowing smoke up the all too receptive sphincter of the orange biopsy. Likewise, Custer didn’t lose sleep over worrying about overconfidence.

Folks, Dolt 45 hasn’t yet been presidenting for six months. He’s supremely talented at turning everything he touches to crap, but even he needs the time to do it in world-class fashion. Perhaps the season of Filmishmish is upon us, but no pigs fly before their time.

Let’s review the last twelve hours shall we? Cuba policy dramatically curtailed. Four thousand Afghanistan troop increase. Program for parents of Dreamers formally rescinded by Homeland Security.

So where should our analysis begin? 1874 might be a good starting point.

That just happens to be where three very inquisitive and industrious German economists began their research. From there they studied 140 years of advanced economies and what happened after severe economic downturns. They published their findings last October.

Why am I babbling about this? Understanding what gives rise to something oftentimes tells you what precedes the fall. Our German magi concluded Dolt 45 was most likely inevitable.

Their study finds that after a severe depression or “great recession,” voters skew hard right. Voters want someone to bring stability. Blame is cast on minorities and foreigners. The “other” is cast as the cause of the upheaval.

Here’s the real kicker. Under such circumstances, far­-right parties increase their vote share by 30% in such circumstances. The orange rejectamenta was preordained.

A little side note here: What Hillary accomplished by winning the popular vote is all the more impressive against this backdrop.

Here’s where it gets interesting. First comes Brexit, then Dolt 45’s election, an election in Austria, and a funny thing happened. The orange, runny discharge started talking and people started listening. It seems as if Dolt 45 has peed on the far right tilt. In fact, Nate Silver finds:

The beneficiaries of the right-wing decline have variously been politicians on the left (such as Austria’s Van der Bellen2), the center-left (such as France’s Emmanuel Macron) and the center-right (such as Germany’s Angela Merkel, whose Christian Democratic Union has rebounded in polls). But there’s been another pattern in who gains or loses support: The warmer a candidate’s relationship with Trump, the worse he or she has tended to do.

Who says the umber inveigler couldn’t bring people together?

It is against this background that I ran into this bit of fascinating research from the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group. Without getting all “statistical,” the researcher used a technique that enabled her to drill down on the Dolt’s support. She found five unique types of Dolt voters.

 

Her research is interesting. I won’t wade in too deeply, but the key findings are:

  • This analysis finds five unique clusters of Trump voters: American Preservationists (20%), Staunch Conservatives (31%), Anti-Elites (19%), Free Marketeers (25%), and the Disengaged (5%)
  • There is no such thing as “one kind of Trump voter” who voted for him for one single reason. Many voted with enthusiasm for Trump while others held their noses and voted against Hillary Clinton.
  • Trump voters hold very different views on a wide variety of issues including immigration, race, American identity, moral traditionalism, trade, and economics.
  • Four issues distinguish Trump voters from non-Trump voters: attitudes toward Hillary Clinton, evaluations of the economy, views about illegal immigration, and views about and Muslim immigration.

It is this last finding where I want to shine some light. Of the four issues distinguishing Dolt voters from non-Dolt voters, three of them are the traditional opinions our German researchers warned about expecting after a severe economic catastrophe.

The fourth issue?  Attitudes toward Hillary. Dolt’s voters are motivated by Hillary hate. Folks, this is where it gets interesting.  The core of Dolt’s base, the American Preservationists and the Anti-Elites, are voters, who about half of them had a positive view of Hillary in 2012. After four years of Benghazipalooza and emailgasms, those attitudes reversed resulting in their votes for Dolt last November.

My point is a simple one. Dolt’s entire presidency rests on sustaining Hillary hate. As his poll numbers dwindle, the mercurial House of Representatives where Articles of Impeachment are generated will watch the all-powerful Republican base monkeys. If they start exiting the Trump Train, it will be a stampede.

One thing we know about Hillary. If she isn’t actively campaigning she is obscenely popular. I would suggest there’s an inverse relationship between the distance from November 8th and Hillary’s unfavorables. Better put, Hillary will be more popular by the day. This will be especially true with a group of voters already predisposed to like her.

There’s one thing of which I’m absolutely sure. Dolt is not smart enough to understand this. This has greasy smudges of Bannon’s mitts all over it.

So there is a method to Dolt’s madness when he tweets his Hillary hate. He’s tweeting like his administration depends on it. It does.

The god couple…

Have you ever saved a fortune from a fortune cookie? I have. Why on earth would a person save a little wad of paper tucked into a baked concoction of egg whites, flour, and sugar? It makes no sense other than it might make you feel good or coincidentally validate some action or behavior in retrospect.

That’s what former FBI Director and Lurch body double, Jim Comey must have been thinking last week. Through all the “mildly nauseous” episodes and the “aw shucks Lordy” moments, it felt like “Long Tall Comey” was feeling almost zestful at the little cookies directed toward the ambulatory orange rind.

It rang true when Comey justified his memo writing by saying he did it because, “The nature of the person.  I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, and so I thought it really important to document.”

What didn’t ring true was the triggering of his Hillary madness based upon Loretta Lynch asking if anyone minded calling the exercise a “matter” as opposed to an “investigation”. Really St. Jim? Was that the real trigger for all your madness and criticism of Hillary? Or was it perhaps just political cover?

When I put the pile of crap about the “nature of the orange person” in one hand and the mouse turd of calling something a “matter” versus an “investigation” in the other, one feels considerably weightier than the other.

But therein lies the rub. They might just both be true. Could be. I don’t feel they are both true, but I don’t know for certain. What I do know is that according to my values hierarchy, calling someone a liar who at his core is a dishonest and untrustworthy is a big deal.

Another off-pissing aspect was the credibility competition between Comey and Dolt 45. Invariably the male pundits trivialized the credibility contest as they do with sexual harassment claims. Instead of the insulting “he said, she said,” they dumbed it down to “he said, he said.”

Wrong. It was really “Trump said or tweeted and Comey swore under penalties of perjury.” Trump is an inveterate liar. He doesn’t mind being called a liar. It is a prerequisite for New York real estate development. It is what he does, has done, and will continue to do until his vermilion verisimilitude is relocated to the ninth circle of hell.

Just as Comey’s representations draw conflicted credibility responses due to confirmation bias, there are certain things about this entire sordid affair that only have one side. For instance, if Dolt 45 didn’t know better than to ask Comey to let the “Flynn thing go,” he must have had a series of memory numbing strokes since he asked Attorney General Granny Sessions and dead-eyed Douchner to leave the room.

And here’s something no one has offered to explain: For the past eighteen months, you couldn’t throw an empty vodka bottle anywhere near the Trump campaign without hitting a Russian. Flynn, Manafort, Page, Stone, Seb Gorka, Boris Epshteyn, Sessions, Douchner, Russian spymasters, Russian bankers, plus Boris and Natasha chasing Moose and Squirrel. Even Doltalot’s new lawyer has all sorts of Russian connections. No one has offered the first explanation of why the mango meerkat campaign suffers from an epidemic of Putinophilia.

Like Greyhounds chasing imaginary prey, everyone is going to be running in circles sniffing out obstruction of justice claims. Two points: (1) Obstruction doesn’t have to be successful to be illegal; and (2) Obstruction is always in the eye of the beholder and Republicans are unlikely to ever see it.

The challenge for us, who believe science-based solutions should underpin progressive policy, as we say it around these parts, is to keep our daubers up. We have eighteen months before the midterms and perhaps at least that long before we see the first reports from Special Counsel Mueller’s band of merry marauders. He does seem to be interested in money laundering and financial fraud.

While Russians don’t have fortune cookies, if they had fortune blinis, they might contain this old Russian adage: От тюрьмы и от сумы не зарекайся. Translated – Don’t denounce prison or poverty. It means anyone can lose all their money or be thrown in jail, no matter how they live or behave.

We can only hope for such a good fortune.

Unless you are living under an overpass without WiFi, you know today is Comeygeddon.  The cable news airheads are going to have to take meth to calm down.  They haven’t been this worked up since day before yesterday and there are no signs of calm after the brewing Comeyapalooza.

You dirty rat and I know from dirty rats…

Everyone with a pencil and a scrap piece of paper wrote an article claiming uncanny insight about the Comey pre-ejaculated testimony. If you wanted to read any of those articles, you probably already have.

We are just four months into the term of the orange runny discharge proving the existence of the Dunning-Kruger effect. Very little, if any money at all, has been spent on this investigation so far and the federal government is already stone cold paralyzed. Republicans spent 25 years and by my estimation about $120 million trying to indict Hillary on something – on anything at all. They failed time and again. So for all those Stein/Sarandon/BernieBros creatures – this might be that hidden difference none of these asshats could ever see. I intend to point that out at every opportunity.

By the last count I saw, in 139 days there are already 9 “former” Dolt 45 appointees. When you can’t keep the D Team in jobs and have nominated just 10% of the presidential appointments, it means you can’t organize a one-car funeral much less manage 4 million civil and military personnel. With ticking time bombs on every continent, we are ceding our global leadership to a mental defective with a Twitter account.

Conversation overhead in Moscow hotel after Trump ordered two white Russians from room service…

In order to save yourself some time going forward, don’t worry about the legal intricacies of “obstruction of justice”. No president can be criminally indicted during their term. The constitutional remedy is impeachment. It is a political question. The political heat must be such that the kangaroo scrotum-headed dingleberry is more of a liability than a balm for the base.

Here’s the good news in all of this: Special Counsel Mueller has hired the most distinguished fraud prosecutor in the Justice Department. His name is Andrew Weissmann and some of the pelts hanging from his belt include Enron and several from the mob. Why is that good news? It tells us where Mueller is heading. Friends, the business dealings of the Mango Mucus discharge will not stand the scrutiny of a Weissmann financial colonoscopy.

Dolt 45 cares nothing about this country. He is even willing to offer up family and friends for indictment. What he does care about is his stuff. It gives him value and self-worth. If he senses his fraud-laden paper empire is about to implode, his resignation will be antedated. Mueller is counting on this. Technology has enabled forensic accounting to move at warp speed these days. This process is going to be much faster than Watergate — years will become months.

The lyrics of Karma Chameleon contain some apropos lines for Dolt 45:

I’m a man without conviction
I’m a man who doesn’t know
How to sell a contradiction?
You come and go, you come and go.

Let’s hope today is the beginning of getting the ulcerated umber carbuncle ready for one of his North Korean-esque signing ceremonies – his resignation.

The hearing starts at 10:00 a.m. EDT. Just turn on any television.

 

Good day Widdershins. I hope it is a good day for you and the beginning of an even better weekend.

Usually I’m halfway able to offer up a cogent theme. Today, I can’t. With the sociopathic static from the orange hobgoblin, a puissant leitmotif is not possible. I apologize for any inconvenience caused by my insistence to inhabit a reality-based world.


Let’s say you have a best friend. You’ve been friends all your life. You are worried though. Your friend happens to be a drunk. You spend years bailing him out of trouble. You talk to him about getting help.

Finally, he agrees to get help. He asks you to drive him so he can voluntarily check himself into rehab. It’s a big deal. It has taken years to get him to this point. He checks in. Two weeks later you come to visit. He gets a day pass and you promptly take him to a bar to celebrate.

In essence that is what we witnessed yesterday on the Paris climate agreement. The loud, ignorant hobgoblin on the bar stool, killed a voluntary, worldwide, long-sought goal by stopping off for a bituminous martini with a chaser of dirty carbon. Just because he could for spite.

The effects aren’t so much substantive, but symbolic. We have abdicated technological leadership on climate to the Germans and the Chinese. They both understand modern international relations are not zero sum transactions. They see transactionalism as insulting and “unclever” – much the same way they see Marmafluke.

The idiocy of this bête noir is even more caustic when placed in perspective. This move appeases a niche of angry, under-educated men, who are barking at shadows because they are dark. Instead of turning on the light of some self-improving education, they have found an incompetent fool who belches and bellows about grievance. It is the strand of commonality in their DNA.

There is not another major political party in the world that denies climate change. Think about that. Not even tribal war lords accept what the Republican Party has accepted as doctrinaire.

This move is a catastrophic debacle. Along with the Iraq War, it will be marked as one of the lines of demarcation in the dimming of American predominance.

 

Without belaboring what has already been discussed in the comments of Fredster’s fine post, I want to add just a few thoughts about Hillary’s presentation at the Recode Conference.

First, Charlie Pierce’s article is outstanding and if you haven’t read it please do. There is a cadre specializing in Hillary criticism: Haberman and Thrush (I’ll leave them to DYB), Mrs. Greenspan, Ruth Marcus (when she’s not playing one of the three witches in Macbeth), and Josh Barro – there needs to be a new measurement of time faster than a nanosecond to measure the interval between Hillary speaking on any subject and Barro tweeting caustic bile in her direction.

I’m not sure what these people want Hillary to do. Self-flagellation does not seem to be enough. Here’s what I do know: It is and always has been cool to “hate on” Hillary. Even Ezra Klein’s very well-reasoned piece begins by acknowledging it isn’t cool to defend Hillary. I’m awaiting his Monday offering to the Hillary haters.

Only Nate Silver and to some extent, Vox contrarian Matthew Yglesias, have dared take on the cool kids in the journalistic lunchroom. They have pushed a simple question: What could the media have done better in the coverage?

It is an uncomfortable question. The three major networks spent a grand total of 32 minutes on policy.

No trade, no healthcare, no climate change, no drugs, no poverty, no guns, no infrastructure, no deficits. To the extent that these issues have been mentioned, it has been on the candidates’ terms, not on the networks’ initiative. These numbers are staggering in terms of the complete retreat they represent from issues-orientated campaign coverage. Just eight years ago, the last time both parties nominated new candidates for the White House, the network newscasts devoted 220 minutes to issues coverage, compared to only 32 minutes so far this year. (CBS Evening News went from 119 minutes of issues coverage in 2008 to 16 this year.)

Here is a graph for perspective:

The one thing all these “Wisconsin whiners” (why didn’t she go to Wescottsen) don’t seem to get is this: How thick must the Kevlar be to withstand Russian hacking, Comey’s letters, residual Obama animus, 25-years of Clinton derangement, patent and latent misogyny, Fox News, voter suppression, 501(c)(4) dark money organizations, and rampant, lazy equivalence by the media? Just how much is enough? And in these divisive times, how do you plan for a Comey letter with just enough votes to overcome the unforeseen?

All these people blame Hillary for not having enough of a cushion to withstand Comey’s bogus letter about 12 emails, ten of which were duplicates. The difference amounted to 77,000 votes spread over 3 states. Nate Silver says without the Comey letter, Hillary would have gained 3%. That would have done it. So yeah, Hillary is entitled to mention it. I intend to help her by mentioning it at every opportunity.

If you are reading this, it means we have made it to Friday once again. I’m writing this early Thursday morning since I am attending a wedding this weekend. It is a road trip wedding to a city where no one, namely the bride, groom, parents, grandparents, friends, and most importantly, your dutiful correspondent, has any connection. Pretty much like going to Ft. Lauderdale to experience Disney World because someone thought that would be fun. So go figure.

Since the news changes every fifteen minutes, taking a stab at a particular subject is like Powerball – you can’t win if you don’t play. Here’s my entry for your consideration on this fine Friday.

How many times have you heard some chattering moron, with an air of arrogance and all-knowing cocksureness, say “Yes, the President is unconventional in his approach to leadership, but he seems to be a transactional leader?”

If you are a student of leadership, to hear someone mutter such drivel is slightly more annoying than chewing a mouthful of aluminum foil. Here’s why. At its base, transactional leadership is grounded in Maslow’s hierarchy. Transactionalism is about meting out reward and punishment. Without getting too scientific, forward-thinking higher intellect of mission, belief, morality, and strategically planning for the future play no part in transactional leadership.

Probably you have known a transactional leader. How can you tell? He or she was a terrible boss or manager. Everything was related to immediate results. Most likely, these people treated you shabbily. Often you were quickly reminded, “You can be replaced. There are others just waiting for your job. Do as I say or someone else will be cashing your check.”

People who engage in transationalism have a punitive nature. Perhaps they would even blow up insurance markets to spite people.

Here’s the real rub – transactionalism only works when there are people picking up what you are laying down. It only works when people are buying what you are selling. It only works in a controlled environment. Most importantly, it is not built to last. At best, it is temporal. At worst, it is a gossamer sham.

Why is this important? Let’s take foreign relations for instance. We have spent well over a Trillion Dollars to convince the Arab world we have good motives after our adventurism. That is until the Saudis decided they wanted to purchase better weapons with which to kill their enemies, both foreign and domestic. Virtually overnight, we switched our foreign policy from even-handedness to loving Sunnis something fierce even though Isis is the same theocratic form of Wahhabism.

As Americans we are rarely exposed to the realities of life abroad. Most of the world live in a transactional existence. Bribes are a cost of doing business. Yesterday doesn’t matter and tomorrow may not come meaning only today counts. Courtesy of the ambulatory orange phlegm, we join the roster of countries where values are assessed and have a price.

Anecdotally, my experience with transactional leaders is very straightforward. Transactional leaders never succeed in the long-term. Take any measurement – employee satisfaction, economic performance, shareholder value, new product rollouts – tranactionalism never succeeds long-term.

Literally, transactional leadership is, “I’m the boss of you,” — a misconception we need to remedy with an ample dose of impeachment.

May 19, 2092

It has finally happened. The last Trump supporter has died on the banks of the Licking River in the sleepy hamlet of Urethra Hollow, Kentucky. While he had long ago forgotten his name, town folk affectionately referred to him as Trumpameatus Johnson – TeeMeatus to his friends. TeeMeatus held the record for over 3 million interviews about his undying support of the 45th President. Mr. Johnson’s longevity is ironic given the relatively short tenure of the President who, next to William Henry Harrison at 31 days, served the shortest tenure.  

While the details will vary, I have little doubt some enterprising reporter will still be scouring the landscape for Trumpanzee supporters 75 years from now. The story will be the same as it is now, the support never wavered in the least.

Besides the fact that it bugs the crap out of me, why bring it up?  First, all the polling on this issue is worthless. The entire premise is wrong. As a pollster, you can’t ask someone, “Since you were stupid when you voted, do you now regret being stupid?” No one answers that question in the affirmative. There is great social desirability in seeing oneself as better than knuckle-draggingly ignorant.

The other reason I mention it is to introduce “motivated ignorance” – it is a real thing. It’s a process described as, “Avoiding facts inconvenient to our worldview isn’t just some passive, unconscious habit we engage in. We do it because we find these facts to be genuinely unpleasant.”

The studies conclude, “People on the left and right are motivated to avoid hearing from the other side for some of the same reasons: the anticipation of cognitive dissonance and the undermining of a fundamental need for a shared reality with other people.” This shared reality is tribal in nature and translates to a shared transactional truth.

This is true for about 60% of the people. It is true for both those on the right and left. It is just the way our brains work. Before you burn me at the stake for equivalency heresy, let me point out, as does the article, you can engage in confirmation bias and still be right. Better said, “You can feel like you are right before you have confirmed your righteousness with science.”

One reason I wanted to write about this was it seemed safe since it is impossible to stay ahead of the hourly “Breaking News” alerts on the latest Dolt-mania. The other reason was the death of Roger Ailes.

Roger Ailes was a loathsome creature. He terrorized not just the workplace for his atavistic hedonism, but he threatened the families and children of his perceived enemies.

Ailes did more to alienate, stagnate, and denigrate our political culture than any other individual in the last 75 years. He knew how to frighten, how to anger, and how to indict through innuendo left dangling for want of context. He had a talent and an appetite for destruction.

Ailes created a laboratory for “motivated ignorance” at Fox.  He perfected an atmosphere of what the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin called, “inverted totalitarianism”:

Antidemocracy, executive predominance, and elite rule are basic elements of inverted totalitarianism. Antidemocracy does not take the form of overt attacks upon the idea of government by the people. Instead, politically it means conditioning an electorate to being aroused for a brief spell, controlling its attention span, and then encouraging distraction or apathy. Citizens are encouraged to distrust their government and politicians; to concentrate upon their own interests; to begrudge their taxes; and to exchange active involvement for symbolic gratifications of patriotism, collective self-righteousness, and military prowess. Above all, depoliticization is promoted through society’s being enveloped in an atmosphere of collective fear and of individual powerlessness: fear of terrorists, loss of jobs, the uncertainties of pension plans, soaring health costs, and rising educational expenses.

We are living through a period of inverted totalitarianism. We can be certain those who labor under motivated ignorance will not know or even care what it is called. People like Ailes who profited from it, would never admit it. There are a couple of bright sides.  One: The philosophy surrounding this negativity is one of destruction. Like all forms of destruction it cannibalizes itself — eventually there is nothing left upon which for it to feed.

The other bright side: Ailes is off the battlefield as a contagion of motivated ignorance. Living through the Trumpian mess he bequeathed us is our retribution.  Coming out better on the other side is our legacy.

 

On a completely unrelated note, I wanted to remind everyone that “lie” is part of Joe Lieberman’s name. Here’s a short clip of him explaining himself:
