To understand the Comey swamp, look to Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels

The Democrats, the deep state and the hilariously inept mainstream media look a lot like the Lilliputians in the Jonathan Swift classic.

If asked about the Lilliputians, most people call up the image of tiny people restraining Gulliver with hundreds of ropes. It's a striking image that's spawned uncountable metaphors. For me, the more interesting part of Lilliputians' society is that the highest levels of government was staffed by winners of rope dancing (tight rope walking) contests.

  To add spice, politicians on ropes of their own had the opportunity to knock their opponents off balance so they'd fall and lose power. I now find this image as funny as I did as a youngster. As a result of James Comey's congressional testimony I picture President Trump traversing the swamp on a high wire in order to reach and pull the drain plug.

The troika composed of the Democrats, the deep state, and the hilariously inept national media are pelting him with bean bags called Russian collusion, and are leaking all over him. (If you haven't read Gulliver's Travels have someone who has explain the allusion to "leaking.") .What makes this so funny is that all their efforts backfired...........More
