Fire and Fury


Blogging, Books, Politics / Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

Fire. And. Fury. Pretty sure these are the feelings I’m gonna have while reading this book by Michael Wolff: Fire and Fury.

Start by reading this excerpt in New York Magazine. Just. Wow.

Donald Trump Didn’t Want to Be President One year ago: the plan to lose, and the administration’s shocked first days.

Then while wrapping your head around the lines such as…

Everybody in his rich-guy social circle knew about his wide-ranging ignorance. Early in the campaign, Sam Nunberg was sent to explain the Constitution to the candidate.

“Does he get it?” asked Ailes suddenly, looking intently at Bannon. Did Trump get where history had put him?

Bannon took a sip of water. “He gets it,” he said, after hesitating for perhaps a beat too long. “Or he gets what he gets.”

He didn’t process information in any conventional sense. He didn’t read. He didn’t really even skim. Some believed that for all practical purposes he was no more than semi-­literate. He trusted his own expertise ­— no matter how paltry or irrelevant — more than anyone else’s.

pre-order the book for yourself like I just did. I fear I know all the things this book is going to tell me. I don’t want to believe it. SENT TO EXPLAIN THE CONSTITUTION. Oh my GOD.

2018.

The year I reverted back to my former self who blogged about politics and current events.

I started yesterday with this.  How is this real life?

I forever love this quote written about (me!) back in 2005 by Anna Hausmann

“But if you think her blog is little more than a Buffalo version of Sex and the City, think again. Smith’s abiding curiosity in politics and world affairs gives her blog a depth and complexity missing from more surfacy fare. You can read in-depth about the best local bands on Buffalo Rising, but where can you find an unabashedly neo-feminist homage to Sandra Day O’Connor?”

Oh and remember that time Instapundit linked to lil’ ol All Things and I had an INSTALAUNCH of new visitors with my R.I.N.O. Sightings post (set to the tune of American Pie.)

How cute, look how naive 2003 All Things Jennifer used to be…Republican? REALLY???

“I also have always felt drawn to politics and imagine myself in some capacity working for the Government.”

Those were the days.

It only took 9 more years until becoming unaffiliated with all political parties. Dear Republican Party

“I quit. I’m finally after all these years, completely embarrassed by you.”

Welcome home Jennifer.
