As someone who consumes the news and then tries to provide additional value, I am floored by this latest scandal involving Rudy Giuliani. I feel like I’m drinking out of a firehose. How could I possibly take in all this incriminating information that is spilling out everywhere and quickly do it justice in a blog post?

My god! This is the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever seen in all my years of watching American politics. I don’t have the foggiest idea where to start. I know I am watching a thread unravel here but I think the hidden ball of yarn must be the size of China.

Giuliani is the single biggest moron I have ever seen in public life. He makes Trump look like a certified genius by comparison.

The most amazing part is that his co-pilot in all of this is William Barr, the attorney general of the United States. And Barr could do nothing but stand by and watch as these folks left having lunch with Giuliani and tried to flee the country to avoid testifying to Congress only to be apprehended and charged with laundering Russian money to Republican officeholders.

In this case, I am just going to let Twitter fill you in and hope I can get my arms around it by morning.

And, for good measure:

Hopefully you can see why I feel a little paralyzed. And I’ve only scratched the surface here.
