Serving ImPeachMint Cocktails at the Dakota Bar. Carl Bernstein is donning his Watergate Cap on CNN. Gloria Borger and Jeffrey Toobin in cheerleader outfits shaking pom poms. Wolf breathlessly skipping around yelling “bombshell” “bombshell” “breaking news”!!!!
Is it obstruction week or infrastructure week? Trump has his hand on the tweeter. Ten minutes until showtime. Ready for Hype Gate. Let’s go.
Comey opened the box. As soon as he tipped the lid on the FBI investigation into potential Trump world coordination with Russians in the election. All bets were off. Intelligence committee partisans unleashed. The press has been banging on the lock for months. The key is turning. Carl Bernstein has been peeking through the cracks. Hoping to reveal the next Watergate. Exaggerate-gate unhinged. Stand back. Evil humors are now released.
Watergate was then. In retrospect not that great. Of a scandal. But. Everything now is constant press overreach. Russia-gate. Comey-gate. Server-gate. Benghazi-gate. News-cycle silly-gates galore. Woodward & Bernstein sit on panels recalling glory days of yore. Investigative reporters straining to break the next bombshell. Exaggerate non-stories hoping one will stick. Sad!
