Wall Street is way too busy enjoying its corporate tax cuts to care about Washington anymore. They got what they wanted, the rest is, like, whatever.

Kevin Drum recently took a poll on this.

Results are closer than I had expected, although women do take a slightly harsher view than men do across the board. Given an opportunity to exercise nuance, both have a nuanced view. Not all sexual misconduct is equally egregious, and there is a difference between monsters like Weinstein at one extreme and pathetic bumblers like Ansari on the other.

Personally, I think the numbers on Franken and Ansari are too low by about a point. I hold famous people to a higher standard, especially famous guys who traffic in feminism. They ought to know better.

Well, actually, they do. They are both liberals in good standing and like all the sorts of things liberals tend to like in a political economy. Progressive taxation, a mild redistribution of wealth to ease inequality, high government services and spending, etc. One hopes they start speaking up more about antitrust and excessive corporate power more than they do, but I'm sure they are generally in line with these things.

What they understand and you do not is that hate is good. Hate made America great. And hate will save us from the hateful people. "I hate Trump" is an outstanding operating principle.

What rank and file Democrats want is fighters with the fire in the belly to take it to the enemy. We are not looking for a 100 point plan to save the political economy. As Democrats, we assume that Democrats have that kind of wonkery covered at all times, because Democrats have never lacked for technocratic expertise in governance. What is wanting is someone to harness our rage against the bastards who are crapping all over this country.

We're mad as hell and the Democrat who best reflects that anger is the one we will love the best. So I say: more hate, please. Lots more.

Back from Men's Warehouse, jackets fit perfect, I'm very pleased.

The world may be going to hell, but I will meet the apocalypse well tailored.
