I just saw an interview of Ol' Mitch by Judy Woodruff on the PBS Newshour.
I was really brought up short when I saw what Ol' Mitch is doing under the now famous republican "bipartisan" bullet point.
He says that the Covid Relief Law is a vast waste because "the economy is roaring back".
It clearly isn't - roaring back.
Janet Yellen can't hear the roar.
Jay Powell says he hasn't heard it either.
But Ol' Mitch can hear it.
He apparently can't hear the 14 million Americans who have dropped into jobs la la land, a land from which it is believed, no one ever returns.
But his hearing of it, I realized, as I watched what this most monumental pile of slime in American history was doing, was a stroke of genius.
When, inevitably, the economy takes off under a just signed into law United States Government prod to the economy, and a prod that is predicated on the belief that "the people" will save us, and therefore, that we should put money in the pockets of "the people", Ol' Mitch and the Boys will say that that is proof that "The Biden Law" was a vast waste of America's fragile resources.
Have I ever told you about Ol' Mitch and the Ku Klux Klan?
Liars, charlatans and republicans are all from the same cloth.
Actually they are the cloth.
