"Everything Old Is New Again" -- All That Jazz (1979)

I'm a little weirded out, because as I opened up Twitter this weekend, the stories were about Oliver North. Anita Hill and Joe Biden. Sam Donaldson. Iran. Hell, even Donald Trump calling himself a "vibrant young man."

I legitimately don't know what year it is any more. Are we hurtling into 2020 or is it still the 1980s? It's hard to tell, isn't it? It seems like both simultaneously a week and ten years ago that the redacted Mueller report was released.

I don't know, maybe this is part of the plan. Loathe as I am to ascribe any tactical strategy to the chaos presidency, maybe this is just another avenue of gaslighting to exhaust Americans into submission. FSM knows, it's exhausting me.
