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

My entirely contrarian take is that the storming of the Capitol is not actually different in nature from what GOP operatives were up to in Florid, only much more amateurish in execution. In fact if history is any guide the Democrats as a party would object much less stridently to a competent coup. Also this is plainly true:


No one says "defund the police" tonight, I write solemnly in a national newspaper, after the police invites the church of Qanon into the Capitol to defecate on the senate floor.
