Who knew that Flake could take flakery to a whole new level. This theme headline may seem premature, but I don’t think so. In fact, the FBI “investigation” now is unlikely to turn up anything. Meanwhile, another delay, during which Democrats will manufacture more phony allegations, and attempt to intimidate Senators because they think it worked yesterday on Flake, is likely to backfire. There is polling evidence that Republican voter enthusiasm has spiked significantly in the last week. The delay is aggravating, but in another sense we shouldn’t mind moving the final result one more week closer to the election, while giving Democrats one more week to display why they are unfit to govern. If I’m wrong about this, next week’s gallery will be the “Flake Edition.” Strap in and get a tall cup of coffee—today’s gallery is extra long, as befits the moment.
