#1 Taibbi is a bad lefty trying to remake himself ahead of the media Gotterdammerung that's coming. He doesn't believe in the things he writes about now but he hopes to still be standing among the smoking ruins of journalism

#2 Or possibly he is bright enough to realize that this Tactic will boomerang on the next Democratic President. Too late, unfortunately.

#3 He would fellate any Democrat, male or female or other gender, regardless of the mechanics, even though he does not need an abortion. He's just born that way.

#4 Taibbi has a disdain for any authority.

#6 Taibbi is a punk preppie son of a wealthy TV reporter, a nasty little piece of work with one talent--for sarcasm. He's a spoiled brat who never grew up.

However, this sarcastic one-trick punk has one huge advantage over the rest of our idiot reporters: he knows Russia first-hand.

Taibbi spent several years in Russia, where he edited a pr0nographic little newspaper, and as a result he Russian society well enough to recognize, immediately, that Russiagate was an absurd pack of lies wrapped around an attempted coup.

Everyone who knows Russia-- left, center, far-left, apolitical
--knew instantly that the Steele doc was garbage, a pastiche of bull$hit cobbled together from tall tales and internet gossip.

Masha Gessen, left-wing emigre Russian journalist famous for her exposes on and opposition to Putin, called BS on Russiagate immediately--in The New Yorker.

Stephen F. Cohen, left-wing historian of Soviet Russia, expert on Bukharin, personal friend of Gorbachev, called bullshit on Russiagate immediately--in The Nation.

Others with extensive backgrounds in Russian business or Russian journalism, like Taibbi and Matt Bivens, the former editor if the excellent independent publication, The Moscow Times, called BS on these ridiculous fairytales.

It was obvious from the start that this man whom no one in Russia has ever heard of, the man whose administration has brought us closer to an actual war with Russia than since Woodrow Wilson's, that thus buffoon was not remotely responsible for any of the absurd crimes he was accused of.

Shame on this country's "journalists."
Shame on Obama and his clownshow spy and DOJ apparatus.

What an absolute circus is our political class.
Damn them all. Time for a new political class in this country.
