Gentle reader, isn’t it amazing how the predictors and prognosticators have managed to look into their crystal balls and suddenly found that the November elections are no longer a foregone conclusion, with a Republican Wave of victories?

You and I have always known that there were still enough right-thinking, sound-thinking American citizens to make such a Republican Wave unlikely, especially when so many Republican candidates are not really Republicans, but are Trumpites, the zombie-like creatures who do not, or can not, think for themselves, but slavishly repeat what-so-ever statements their master tells them they must repeat.
