    You remember the Extreme Ithaca Liberal campaign theme used successfully by Republican Representative Tom Reed in my home district NY-23? The Extreme Ithaca Liberal theme was used to beat well-financed liberal challengers over the head with a caricature of Ithaca liberals. It was a brilliant campaign theme because there was at least a kernel of truth to it, and the challenger didn't have to be from Ithaca for it to work.

    In the annals of unintentional liberal self-parody, there is a special place reserved for a column by Ruth Mayor, "I detest Trump, but a ‘redneck’ fixed my Prius with zip ties." What makes it so classic is that Mayor doesn't intend it as self-parody. She clearly intends it to reflect a liberal's awakening to the goodness in some people she otherwise wouldn't associate with. So it's basically virtue-signaling in the age of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    The Senate voted early this morning to pass a Tax Reform bill. That bill is not yet law, because differences with the Tax Reform bill passed by the House need to be worked out in conference. Nonetheless, this procedural step forward was considered a big win for Trump and Republicans after Senate Republicans could not pass even a weak repeal and replace of Obamacare because of defections. But this time the caucus held together with just one defection, Bob Corker. How have liberals reacted?

    Hollywood, the liberal media, and Democrats kept a dark, dirty secret for decades. It is now acknowledged to have been common knowledge in those domains that numerous women over a long period of time complained about sexual harassment by movie industry mogul Harvey Weinstein. And there was substantial evidence to back up the allegations. But there was silence. And worse than silence, there was cover up.

    My my, how the political pendulum has swung about the little darlings known as Antifa. Antifa, as we documented, are the continuation of a long line of Anarchist-Marxist street thugs originally known as Black Bloc, then Occupy, then in the age of the Resistance to Trump, were rebranded as "Anti-Fascist," hence, Antifa. The stripes changed, but not the violent tactics. Just as Democrats embraced Occupy, so too they embraced Antifa when Trump rallies were disrupted and Trump supporters beaten. "Punch a Nazi" became a popular slogan, with "Nazi" having an expansive definition to include all Trump supporters. We explored this Democratic love affair with Antifa in Democrats own Antifa, just like they owned Occupy.

    Trump visited the Boy Scout Jamboree this week, much to the delight of the approximately 40,000 attendees who cheered loudly for him. Some liberals rushed to compare the Boy Scouts to the Hitler Youth, further displaying their utter disconnect with average Americans, or as they would say, the "deplorables." Cristina Silva wrote at Newsweek:

    The liberal freakout over the recent confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was just a preview. If another vacancy opens up this summer, we'll see the main attraction. And just so you know, there is already talk of another vacancy. Max Greenwood writes at The Hill:
    Grassley: There will be a Supreme Court vacancy this year A top GOP senator is predicting another vacancy on the Supreme Court this year. "Every year you get these rumors. Somebody's going to quit. Everybody looking – 'Have they hired their clerks?' Etcetera, etcetera. You know, are they sick or something?" Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said on C-SPAN's "Newsmakers."

    Within weeks of Trump winning the election last fall, liberals were already shrieking about how the election was stolen by Russia. It's easier and more comforting to say it was stolen than to admit you lost for a reason. The tendency to rely on conspiracy however, has become a weekly or sometimes daily occurrence. Even Chris Cillizza of CNN who is hardly a conservative has noticed this:
    Donald Trump is turning liberals into conspiracy theorists Much has been written about how President Trump's election has had a profound impact on the Republican party. What's drawn less attention -- but deserves more! -- is how Trump is affecting Democrats.
