You all know what's going to happen... [View all]

Eventually we are gonna get a Democrat into the Office of the President. It will be a joyous moment and we will be shouting and smiling and high-fiving and relieved and celebrating and having parties and generally being very very pleased that we are finally rid of this orange-u-tan.

And then it's going to happen: the MSM is going to collectively announce that it was "somewhat" culpable for the allowance of a sociopathic liar to nearly-destroy the fabric of the United States so they will assert that a new day has dawned: to wit, that every statement of the new Democratic President will be analyzed and torn apart syllable by syllable to ENSURE that this never happens again. They will institute "He/She is a Liar tonight because..." segments on the news and it will be incessant. Any call of unfairness or over-reaction to minor twists of pure verity will be answered by retorts of "we cannot let this happen again".

Now here's the best part...

After the Democrat is torn limb from limb rhetorically, the new Republican President will be the beneficiary of liberalized rules because the MSM will issue a mea culpa that they overreacted to the 45th President whose name they will not even utter (see History Lesson #39457 in re: Bush/Cheney as unmentionable).

It's the Political Cycle of Life.
