    So what now? are we supposed to believe that Comey of the FBI, having delivered the election into Trump's hands, is now gonna rescue democracy from him? well shifty.

    Seems like it's all in Putin's hands now, so who do we reckon he'd rather nuke? N Korea? "the middle east"? Scotland?

    i think the media enjoys pushing this gary cohn story line, probably because they know it annoys trump and the bannon/miller faction, and fuels the white house infighting.

    Tom Friedman's N.Y. Times column today is a memo to Trump's War Cabinet ("the five adults with the most integrity in the Trump administration"), urging them to act as Trump's parents.

    The Daddy for today is burly economic adviser Gary Cohn, according to the juiciest (and last) paragraph of an account by the N.Y. Times' Thrush and Haberman of White House aides' "nearly paralytic inability to tell Mr. Trump that he has erred or gone too far on Twitter."

    "In a recent meeting in the Oval Office, Mr. Cohn was speaking when Mr. Trump interrupted him. 'Let me finish,' Mr. Cohn interjected ... Trump, unaccustomed to ceding the floor, let him make his point."

    'WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin a decade ago and proposed an ambitious political strategy to undermine anti-Russian opposition across former Soviet republics, The Associated Press has learned. The work appears to contradict assertions by the Trump administration and Manafort himself that he never worked for Russian interests.

    Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government, even as U.S.-Russia relations under Republican President George W. Bush grew worse.'

    It's almost as if republican's exploit identity politics to implement economic policies that aren't very popular or beneficial to their voters.

    Just widened the application of that one.

    It's the basic formula for neoliberal government, which we all know - more to the point, what the hell can you do to counter it? Most famous early example is the Falklands I suppose, and the extraordinary rise in the Tory Party polling stats during early 1982: http://ukpollingreport.co.uk/voting-intention-1979-1983 (a remarkably interesting document in many ways, not least the extraordinary polling figures for the Libs/SDP during the 'Don't You Want Me' December of 1981.)

    Tangentially related, but I found it while looking for Thatcher's approval ratings:
    https://www.ipsos-mori.com/researchp...peciality.aspx this is quite an interesting look back to the pre-9/11 mindset. I can imagine one or two of those results may have shifted in the intervening time. Why the hell was Branson so popular in 2001?
