And while we're on the topic of desperation....

The president, the administration, and the associated Republican cronies are a still very powerful but badly wounded vicious beast. I think Victor Hugo best captured what we're in for from this gang:

There exists, at the bottom of all abasement and misfortune, a last extreme which rebels and joins battle with the forces of law and respectability in a desperate struggle, waged partly by cunning and partly by violence, at once sick and ferocious, in which it attacks the prevailing social order with the pin-pricks of vice and the hammer-blows of crime.

We know what's coming, most likely accompanied by a deluge of pre-emptive pardons to boot. God help us all.
