On That Other Thing That Happened

Regarding the recent unpleasantness in Washington there is erudite and comprehensive discussion of the matter from David French and Susan Collins. There is also commentary in a more partisan vein at American Thinker and Powerline as well as by Neo that I'm in broad agreement on. There's a short post at Instapundit that gets into the possible strategies of the white house in this matter. I must confess that I tend to be quite skeptical of the 3D-Chess explanations for Trump's more unconventional behavior, but this affair has me reasessing my premises. 


I fear though, that the most relevant and insightful piece on the matter is this terse and pithy post over at Books Bikes and Boomsticks. It's possibly the most troubling as well.

1 Oddly with respect to that last piece, I've been blocking people on Twitter who demonised the other side.  Post political memes into my timeline and I don't care who you are, you get blocked.
As for the 3D-Chess thing...  It's getting into Captain Tylor territory.

2 Heh, Pixy's comparing Trump to Captain Taylor is one of the more interesting, and apt, analogies for Trump heard in a while.  Is it strategy?  Is it luck?  With the results happening, does it matter?  We may be getting into the realm of a new variant of Clarke's law: Any sufficiently cunning strategy is indistinguishable from luck.
Why do I have a feeling that if we had Steven still around, Pixy's comment would have generated an entire post.
