Thank You, Trump, for Getting Us On Our Toes

I don't usually quote Maureen Dowd -- I still bear a deep grudge for something she said about Howard Dean a millennium ago -- but I like "Trump's Gold Lining":
Donald Trump has indeed already made some of America Great Again.
Just not the aspects he intended.
He has breathed new zest into a wide range of things: feminism, liberalism, student activism, newspapers, cable news, protesters, bartenders, shrinks, Twitter, the A.C.L.U., “S.N.L.,” town halls, George Orwell, Margaret Atwood, Hannah Arendt, Stephen Colbert, Nordstrom, the Federalist Papers, separation of powers, division of church and state, athletes and coaches taking political stands and Frederick Douglass.
We might add to that list the rising resistance in North Carolina to the Republican General Assembly, since the biggest crowd in history showed up in Raleigh on Saturday to demand social justice and voting rights and equality under the law (HB2 is still a thing and is still hurting our state's economy).

Everything that can go wrong will go wrong under our Rollerball president, and the Republicans in Congress are holding that bag.
