"It's A Pity They Can't Both Lose"

Whether or not Henry Kissinger ever said it, someone did.

It is my favourite quotation, which I find endlessly useful.

And it applies perfectly to the battle between, on one side, Donald Trump, and on the other, Mike Pence and his neoconservative backers in and around the "Intelligence Community".

To them, Pence would be no worse than Bush was, and a Clinton-without-the-Clintons candidate would do against him in 2020.


  1. Quite right. In spite of everything, I'm still glad Clinton isn't President.

    1. Indeed. The Third World War would already have started in the skies over Syria.
