Orange is the New Black?

Many Democrats are rallying to oppose President Trump under the grandiose banner of "Resist" before he had done anything. Which is their right, of course.

Yes, Democrats resisted energetically during the Bush 43 era, too, getting Holy Dissent elevated to the highest form of patriotism. But that attitude ended in January 2009.

If there is one thing I learned from Democrats and the media during the last 8 years it is that you cannot oppose a president on policy grounds. That is impossible.

No, disagreement must be based on darker, awful reasons--like racism.

I assume our media will diligently root out the real, darker, awful reason for knee-jerk Democratic resistance to Trump.

Is orange the new black?
