Good interview. Perlstein is worth reading, especially for his demythologizing of Carter.

Why has Jimmy Carter become such a beloved figure in these last few years?

I was immediately attracted to writing in depth about Carter because he was the father of the Democratic Party's cult of austerity, the idea that the way to solve problems of economic dispossession is to cut government. I hope that people revisit Carter as the source of a colossal wrong turn in the evolution of the Democratic Party. That is my Jimmy Carter. People are hungering for public figures who present a face of decency. Whatever you say about Jimmy Carter, he oozed decency. It is not particularly surprising that people will roll up Jimmy Carter into another narrative of American innocence, that we can be governed by decent people. The danger of that temptation is that Carter pursued an agenda that was explicitly a backlash against the New Deal just as much as Reagan did.

Good. Let the orange p;rick and the cretins like Ted Cruz embark on a new party. This will split the vote between Republican and Patriot Party. The Dems will be in power for the next 50 years. Go for it,Hitler.

"I object to this unconstitutional sham of an 'impeachment' trial and I will force a vote on whether the Senate can hold a trial of a private citizen..."

"...A partisan vendetta against a man no longer in office. It's almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump.Without him as their boogey-man, they might have to legislate. This scam of any impeachment will ostensibly ask whether the president incited the reprehensible behavior and video of Jan 6, when he said, 'I know everyone here will soon march to the Capitol  and peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.' Hardly words of violence..."

10 Republicans in the House vote to impeach.  5 Republicans in the Senate voted against Paul's motion.

I am no supporter of the former Vice-President but it is irresponsible to publicize his location with all the death threats that are flying around against politicians in the US.

Trump has been breaking the ground rules on Twitter and other social media platforms for years and years and has gotten away with it because he was president or running for president. People are suspended and expelled from social media all the time when they break the ground rules. Here on Babble we also have to abide by rules and we also face suspension or expulsion if we break those ground rules. Why should Trump and other right wingers get to break ground rules when the rest of us can't! Trump would have been expelled from social media a long time ago if he wasn't president. Why should he never be held accountable for his actions?
