A good friend who lives in the heartland—but is apparently fond of the English tabloid press—has taken me to task for ignoring this vital story:
Melania Trump ‘spending time away from Donald at posh hotel’ after allegations of his affair with porn star Stormy Daniels
Actually, I am coming to see the decency and good sense in Melania. Yes, she is a Woman with a Past. Yes, she made a really rotten Faustian bargain. But, at least, she appears to have the good sense to realize the mistake she made.
Melania, it appears, has understood what a goodly portion of the Republican establishment will not admit: the problem with Useful Idiots is that their idiocy tends to detract from their utility.
