Hitler and Stalin didn't actually run to get into power. If there was ever a time a credible third party candidate could have run it would have been the past presidential election.

I wonder how much longer our form of government can last I fear the noble experiment is coming to an end...I underestimated how loathed Trump would be his presidency may hasten its demise.

Yes, for almost 200 years now, the R and D have been nearly the death of us (R used to be Whig).  But the rumors of demise seem to be hyperbolic.  You can't kill something that is a zombie.

The White House is going to be a lot roomier without all those tiki torches cluttering up the place.
Two huge egos like that just couldn't fit in there! Now there's more bigly room for Chump's.

The phrase comes from the opening stanza of Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Concord Hymn" (1837) and refers to the first shot of the American Revolutionary War. According to Emerson's poem, this pivotal shot occurred at the North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts, where the first British soldiers fell in the battles of Lexington and Concord.

People overestimate the importance of White House "advisors".  They come, they go...

I had never heard of Steve Bannon before he got involved in the Trump campaign, and now that he is out of the White House, most of us might not hear much of him ever again.  As one TV talking head said recently, Sarah Palin is nothing but an annoying blog commentor these days.

Maybe Bannon will run against Chump in 2020...he'll have his own base by then.

I would say I hope he tries.  But that's how we got Trump.  Never underestimate the power of voter stupidity...

Quote
Steve Bannon, the ousted White House chief strategist, is reportedly considering starting a television network which would allow him to "go nuclear" as he settles vendettas with moderate advisers in the White House

Quote
Mr Bannon's possible TV network would be intended as a rival to Fox News, the Rupert Murdoch-owned channel which has been supportive of Mr Trump, but which Mr Bannon now regards as too moderate
"Moderate" might be a bit of a stretch here, but it highlights Bannon's degraded mental state.  When you're to the right of Fox News, you've officially gone off the deep end.

Quote
Mr Bannon added: "I feel jacked up. I've got my hands back on my weapons. It's Bannon the Barbarian. I am definitely going to crush the opposition. I built a f****** machine at Breitbart. We're about to rev that machine up.”

Fox News has moderate of late.  Too much pussy grabbing.  And Trump doesn't like the competition ;-)

And perhaps Bannon is to the Right of Fox News ... I would expect to.  Fox News represents the Dick Cheney faction of the R party.  Bannon is alt-right ... so perhaps Right-Anarchism rather than Deep State Fuckitude.  Young people today, R and L ... seem closer to anarchism ... but then the hippies of the 60s were anything but organized.

Don't worry, Elon Musk, Chelsea Clinton, that Facebook guy ... will be running on the D party side next time.  Losers, all the way down.
