In the spirit of fairness, bipartisanship, and anti-moral-relativism, I am very ready to give up watching Al Franken in the upcoming PBS TV tribute to David Letterman. By the way, PBS, have you googled “David Letterman women” lately? I am also willing to do without Charlie Rose. And I can live without seeing Bill Clinton on TV again.
But what about the president? I feel I ought to be fair to both sides here and adopt a posture of bipartisan civility. And so I can reveal that I am absolutely willing to never see any trace of our 45th president on television ever again. Is that too much winning to ask? I admit that if Trump doesn’t kill us all, it might even be best for the long-term health of our democratic republic, and would probably serve us right, for all of us to have to get ourselves together to vote his enablers out next year and then vote him out in 2020. That is the least we can do. But if the president decides that we are unworthy of all the winning he is bringing, and wants to spare us his showers of blessings deliverance shtick, I’ll go along to get along.
