Race to the Bottom

“How low can you go?”

The bar for public discourse has been lowered every day of the Trump administration. When Roseanne Barr referred to Valerie Jarrett as the spawn of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes and Samantha Bee called First Daughter Ivanka Trump a “Feckless C**t,” the public discourse bar dropped so low that excavators had to use heavy equipment to find it. We’ve forgotten how wonderful appropriate language can be and how much more effective it is.  Consider our hero, George Will, who nailed Vice President Mike Pence as “America’s most repulsive public figure,” and President Trump as a “floundering, inarticulate jumble of gnawing insecurities.”  Now THAT is public discourse that won’t require locking up the babies and the old ladies!
