A Masterful Stroke

Here is Peter Wehner, in an otherwise unexceptionable New York Times op-ed piece:

Of the many things people worried about before President Trump took office, it turned out that the main problem was his incompetence rather than his authoritarian tendencies — at least so far.

This isn’t to say that Mr. Trump has no successes to speak of. His appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was a masterful stroke.

This seems to be the best and practically the only worthwhile Trump achievement that Republicans can come up with in these first hundred days. But what a pathetic stretch it is. Mitch McConnell stole Obama’s Supreme Court seat and kept it on ice for the new so-called “president.” Trump’s master stroke was his selection of a name from a list of 20 conservative jurists compiled for him by the Federalist Society. Any old name. Barring a conviction for dorking a llama, anyone on the list would have been automatically confirmed by the Republican majority in the Senate.

Why do you think that bit with a llama would stop Republicans?

Crank, it would be OK with them as long as it was a female llama.
