Eschaton: Pop Goes The Aughts - Right wingers and "centrists" spent the decade after the beginning of the Great Recession demonizing the unemployed and finding any excuse for it other than the obvious ones ...

Gonna be the same thing but even more insane.

John Whitehouse on Twitter: "ah https://t.co/xbLohtKryZ" / Twitter
One thing too few remember about Katrina was it wasn't just incompetence, but extreme racism. I don't mean extreme racism of Fox News, or the Bush administration. I mean of basically the entire media. New Orleans was treated as *too dangerous for the national guard to enter safely* because there were black people there, and when they weren't looting big screen TVs (a sensible thing to do in several feet of water), they were killing whitey. News coverage was dominated by accounts of crime in the Superdome. It was just *too dangerous to help people.* ... But a hurricane hits a location. The virus is going to go everywhere. So, good luck places the president likes! He doesn't like any place, actually, and he isn't going to like you, either, when you make his numbers look bad.

Eschaton: This Sucky Blog Is My External Memory - And people who were horrified by Katrina (and other things), rightfully, now get nostalgic for George Bush. And while I am no longer strongly on the side of "actually, George Bush was worse than Trump" as Trump finally has his moment to shine, I am still mad that...everyone forgot. Even people who pay attention to politics barely remember things that happened 4 years ago. It should not be very surprising that people who are blessed with more entertaining hobbies don't remember things that happened a month ago.

Most of them aren't even by any measure "moderate Republicans," unless you think of Bloody Bill Kristol as one. They're very right wing conservatives who just want Trump to tweet less and bomb more.

But that was, of course, their inevitable path that dumb hippie bloggers like me told you would be the case years ago ... Nevertheless...
