This is going to be a shit storm of 90s and 00s crap raining down on us if this confirmation drags out (McConnell will almost certainly attempt to ram it through in as tight a window as possible). The most amazing part may be revelations that emerge from emails during his time in the Bush WH (assuming they weren't deleted ... which will be a bit inconvenient for a lot of GOPers that have railed on Hilary the last few years).

Every third lady that flirt, want my chirp lately
I know some RN's that still strip
When I and this real dick in the clinic
Nurse suit and heels, shit
Better than college, after that, students home
At least after your bid, ain't no student loans
To pay back, jack, ask, "What do you condone?"
Hit towns with coke, a .45 blue as chrome
They done juiced my dome, knock knock, "are you at home?"
I'm Macaulay; girls call the crib and ask, "are you alone?"

Only he forgot to say that Merkel halted the Energiewende in 2009. Then Fukushima melted down, and it's the Greens (that pushed the Energiewende in the first place) that got Merkel to implement it as planned.

All of this is trying to convince the Germans to stop buying cheap and reliable Russian gas, in order to sell them more expensive fracked boated american gas... which also means that Germany would have to build a couple more LNG terminals, and no wants LNG terminals on their coastline for obvious reasons.

This is the underlying problem with so much of the foreign policy commentary associated with this populist moment ... and Trump is too dumb to understand the subtlety of this stuff (even though I am sure he's had it explained in painstaking detail). It's actually in the US' interest to have these other countries reliant on its military power ... just like it was in the US' interest to have a seat at the Pacific table in the TPP. If you force others to assume a larger role and/or create a void, folks will fill that space and not necessarily behave the way you want them to.

As I saw someone observe in a twitter thread in the past couple of days, we may be on the cusp of a paradigm shift in foreign affairs. Some will cheer that, but who knows what rests on the other side of that paradigm shift ... and if it is anything like the environment that existed prior to the current international order, they will likely look back fondly on the past 70 years.

We've already hit that paradigm shift. You could see it before the election. The GOP and Dems switched positions on Russia.

Germans are pretty objective towards Russia... they know we've always meant to be beast friends and rule the world, but 200 years of anglo sabotage has done wonders.

Political party shifting (Dems didn't really change, and the majority of the GOP has not either) is not the paradigm shift I'm talking about or worried about. The POTUS threatening to pull out of NATO is ...

Is it accurate to say that the majority of Republicans haven't shifted? At first that was true, but it feels like people are lining up behind Trump. Especially their voters, but also lots of elected officials.

Did you see the Senate votes yesterday? Symbolic, yes. But clear.

GOP pols have proven to be cowards, but I very much doubt their core beliefs have shifted at a personal level. Moreover, the GOP was batshit prior to Trump, which gets ignored too often. But it was committed to the international system, against protectionist economic policies, etc.

I didn't see the Senate votes yesterday. Did they finally censure him?

The Senate has always been a little more reasonable, but Congress is more behind him. Plus the number of local and state reps who back him is astonishing.

It's not though. He's got a pretty strong personality cult amongst the base, and going against that headwind is a poor electoral strategy. Which is almost certainly why we are seeing so many retirements. While I'm sure there are many full Trump converts, especially amongst younger pols, I would be shocked if there isn't a lot of public support and private loathing. In the immediate that doesn't amount to much, but in the long term it might allow this to be more ephemeral than permanent.

The Senate overwhelmingly voted what was effectively censure votes on the tariffs and his dealings with NATO (preemptively, mind you).

I don't really think that is true ... the GOP passed a *very unpopular* tax bill that is entirely in line with decades of rhetoric and ideology. It will almost certainly play into the seats they lose.

In other news, Trump is going to topple May while he's in the UK.
