The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Diarrhea Tornado

Politically motivated sh*tstorms, we'll call them Diarrhea Tornados (DTs), often backfire. I predict such a storm in our near future. DTs are often created in order to divert attention from a legitimate issue by attacking the source with outrageous lies.

The problem with planning to start such a DT is that in this political environment the winds often change and the target emerges clean, while those who attack are those who get covered with the mess. I predict the end of at least one and possibly more political careers.

Politics of the dirtiest sort are brewing, gentle readers. I don't have enough on-the-record information to publish – yet. Buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy couple of months....

I can't publish yet. I have it solid, I just don't have it on the record solid. Should be on the record late Tuesday or Wednesday morning.

Is it a timely thing why this "thing" is going to come out January 19-20?

Local, state or bigger?

Male or female?

National newsworthy?

Did the butler do it?

Worse than the daily grind from the War College? Must be bad stuff.

The War College cranks out nothing but spin and speculation.
