Big Government/ Ann Coulter: I was minding my own business reading about Bob Woodward, the GREATEST INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR REPUBLIC (as he will be the first to tell you), and came across this bit of genius from his book.
According to The New York Times, Woodward is flabbergasted that former FBI Director James Comey released the Russian dossier, when he had the “airtight” report of 17 INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES.
Woodward writes: “It would be as if I had reported and written one of the most serious, complex stories for The Washington Post that I had ever done, and then provided an appendix of unverified allegations. Oh, by the way, here is a to-do list for further reporting and we’re publishing it.”
You will know, if you have read a much better book* about the Trump hysteria, Resistance Is Futile!: How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind, that, eventually, this is what the Resistance says about every part of the Russian collusion story. Oh, that old yarn? Yeah, we hysterically oversold that one, but maybe you’d be interested in this other scandal we tried pushing a few months ago!
(*Thus, according to the Times: “Woodward has never been a graceful writer, but the prose here is unusually wooden.”)
The Russian collusion story isn’t a story at all, but a constantly changing kaleidoscope with the same glass panes appearing, disappearing and then reappearing under the same headline: RUSSIAN COLLUSION PROVED! Each time, we’re supposed to pretend it’s an all-new “breaking news” story that hasn’t been disproved six times already.
Among the kaleidoscope panes are:
The Russia dossier!
Roger Stone tweeted something mean about John Podesta!
Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador!
Carter Page went to Russia!(But unlike Bernie Sanders, NOT on his honeymoon — ed.)
George Papadopoulos talked about Hillary’s emails!
The GOP platform on Ukraine was changed!
Seventeen intelligence agencies say Russia hacked the DNC’s emails to help Trump!
Of all these, it was the dossier that dominated the news for most of Trump’s first year in office. Here was the proof that Trump was owned by the Russians. The dossier had to be true — it just had to be!
Then, suddenly, 10 months later, that kaleidoscope pane completely disappeared. more here
