Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Actor John Leguizamo said something on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert a little while ago which I think may be what is happening in the USA.  He said that he thought Trmp's election was like an enema for the country and all the feces, all the filth will come pouring out.  Certainly, the contradictions are becoming clearer almost every day here.  May Leguizamo be right and all the filth is exposed and eliminated.

Former Governor Jennifer Granholm also said something on TV recently which may be pertinent.  She said that Emily's List, a group that supports women candidates, had about 3000 candidates in the last election.  These days they have something over 30,000 candidates running in 2018.  So far.

You can also see some of this activism in the women's marches and now the Parkland survivors.  Trmp has mobilized an enormous grassroots opposition.  It doesn't have full political power yet, except in some individual states, but it is pushing consistently towards that goal.

House Cancels Votes for Billy Graham to Lie in Honor in Capitol Rotunda
Graham, an influential preacher who served as an adviser to 12 consecutive U.S. presidents, will be the first religious leader to lie in honor. A bicameral service will be held as his casket arrives Wednesday; the public will have access later that day and Thursday to pay their respects.
[...]
 Before Graham, the only people to have lain in honor at the Capitol were civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks and Capitol Police officers Jacob Joseph Chestnut and John Michael Gibson, who were killed in the line of duty, according to the Architect of the Capitol.

Which of those women candidates will run on ending "Prayer Breakfast" at the Capitol?

What music do they play at those things? I'd go for Nixon-tape remix.

They could just play tapes of Billy Graham himself.


He apologized later for having been caught.

It's the getting caught that matters.

I think Billy Graham's body's rotunda viewing goes nicely with Leguizamo's enema comment myself but I have a perverse sense of humor.
