Generals Rising

From McMaster to even Jeff Sessions, Generals’ voices are coalescing around a rational nucleus. Charlottesville, Virginia shone the light on evil, historic statues and symbols of division and violence born of hate. It showed Terry McAuliffe to be a bad manager. But, on the bright side. It also affords an opportunity to cleanse the White House of Bannon and the Alt-Right. If a case can be made by the Generals, this may be the perfect moment to get rid of the destructive chaos faction of the West Wing. And. The military leaders seem to be the ones least interested in going to war. So. Maybe a silent coup is best.

On a ridiculous side trek. Mario Cantone is clearly the winner over Bill Hader in the Scaramouche battle. Anthony himself took his medicine like a man. Let’s see where he lands.

Scaramouche

Commedia dell’arte’s Scaramuccia. The skirmisher, a mainstay character in the Punch & Judy Italian puppet opera. Swashbuckling minstrel with Über Swagger. Donald’s newly appointed media leader. Anthony Scaramucci.  Unlike Spicey. Sartorially-savvy. Brioni suits. A compact Queens communicator. Better fits the role. Salesman by trade. Financier. Goldman Sachs to Skybridge. From the campaign to the transition. A loyal jester in the modern Game of Trump.

Can he pull off a miraculous messaging show?
