"The Capitals’ overachieving year threatens, again, to end in doom and gloom"

Game 4 against Tampa was bad. How bad? This bad:

When the Washington Capitals lost Game 4 to Tampa Bay on Thursday night, nobody in the crowd booed. Not a one that I could hear, devastating as that loss was. As they poured up aisles to the exits, Capitals fans wore similar red garb and uniform expressions, too — not resignation, not dejection, not anything really. They didn’t even look upset or displeased. They might as well have been walking out of a revival of “Romeo and Juliet,” where the story ended just as they expected, as it always does: Everybody you love dies.

But after wins in games 6 and 7, the dream lives on! Starting Monday night, go Caps!


Do you want to understand what the deal is with the Clinton campaign, in league with the Deep State . . .

. . . planting a spy in the Trump campaign is all about, but you don't want to spend a huge amount of time on it? I recommend these two pieces:

Andrew McCarthy, NRO: "In Politicized Justice, Desperate Times Call for Disparate Measures".

Glenn Greenwald: " The FBI Informant Who Monitored the Trump Campaign, Stefan Halper, Oversaw a CIA Spying Operation in the 1980 Presidential Election.

(Note that the second one anticipates what may well be the Left's storyline: It was a Nixon/Reagan guy who did it! Don't blame us! And payback is a bitch!)
