No matter how you measured stupidity in the past, Steve Bannon has introduced a whole new yardstick. After all, it takes a special kind of dope who destroys his own future because of a book – a book, moreover, that is making some other schmuck rich.

For years, people have been saying that Bannon is smart as a fox. If so, there must be some really dense foxes running around out there. I suspect those people simply believed the rumor — a rumor, I’d wager, that was started and disseminated by none other than Mr. Bannon.

The most fascinating aspect of Bannon’s downfall is how closely it paralleled James Comey’s transformation. James Comey, who was blamed by many on the Left, including Mrs. liar-Clinton, for costing her the presidency, went from being Public Enemy #1 to hero status among liberals once Trump fired him.

What occurred with Steve Bannon was every bit as dramatic a reversal. For months, because he had cast himself as the person who had single handedly provided Trump with the keys to the White House, Bannon was branded a Nazi and the second most dangerous man in America. But once we all discovered that he had colluded with Michael Woolf in producing a book that rivaled the Russian dossier when it came to spreading malicious lies about the President, the leftists were beside themselves. Not only were they ready to forgive and forget, they were quite prepared to suggest he run as NOprah Winfrey’s V.P. in 2020.

You can expect a similar switcheroo, but in reverse, if Robert Mueller fails to indict Donald Trump if, after all this time and money, he’s unable to come up with evidence of treason.

You can bet that the Never-Trumpers at the NY Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and the National Review, would insist in that event that Mueller, instead of being the paragon of integrity they’ve been calling him, was in fact a double agent, working on behalf of Trump Enterprises.

* It’s not just the liar-nObamas and the liar-Clintons whose book sales are skewed by the huge number bought by partisan groups and used as giveaways. I just recently discovered that several hundred thousand copies of Mark Levin’s books are purchased by groups promoting the nutsy Constitutional Convention that he and a few other talk show hosts are always going on about.

I realize that devotees of certain conservatives would rather not believe their heroes can be bought and paid for, but you may have noticed that most, if not all, of them aren’t above personally endorsing all sorts of products for their advertisers, products and services they’d never even mention if they weren’t being paid to hawk them.

* Class warfare has nothing to do with good versus evil or right versus wrong, but everything to do with envy. Like those kids who play air guitars and pretend to be rock stars, it all comes down to “Why him or her” – because envy isn’t limited to just one sex – “and not me? It’s not fair.”

But they don’t mean fair; they mean unfair, but to their own advantage.

Life, unlike liberalism, doesn’t pretend to be fair. Otherwise, some people wouldn’t be born smarter, richer or better-looking, than other people. All of that is, or should be, a given. The lucky ones are those of us who get to be born in America, where even really dumb, poor and ugly people, can wind up being successful; especially if they decide to pursue a career in politics or academia.

* In opposing Trump’s attempt to place the emphasis on “Temporary” when it comes to “Temporary Protection Status,” a law that allowed hundreds of thousands of Haitians and Salvadorans to seek shelter in the U.S. in the wake of storms and earthquakes 20 years ago, a Republican congressman from Florida, Mario Diaz-Balart argued: “Living conditions may have improved slightly, but El Salvador now faces a significant problem with drug trafficking, gangs and crime.”

Someone, preferably one of his Republican colleagues in Congress should point out to the pinhead that the United States suffers from similar problems, in no small part due to all the Salvadorans involved in MS-13.

* The Center for American Progress, one of the many leftist groups with typically high-fallutin’ patriotic names funded by scum-George Soros, is blaming President Trump for the DACA problem. But, as usual, the problem was created by Barack liar-nObama, who, as usual, elected to ignore the Constitution, when he illegally granted amnesty to 700,000 illegal aliens.

* In the wake of her speech at the Golden Globe awards, there has been a groundswell among America’s ignoramuses urging NOprah Winfrey to oppose Donald Trump in 2020. Even Bill Kristol, who, against all evidence, keeps maintaining he’s a conservative, wasted no time jumping on her bandwagon.

I know there are those who believe that she is the strongest possible candidate the Democrats could nominate. They point to her money, to her philanthropy and to her popularity among women, all women. But I think such people are misguided.

It’s not that Ms. NO-Winfrey is an outsider when it comes to politics. As the electorate has shown in the past by electing Eisenhower and Trump, they don’t always demand a political pedigree in selecting their Commander-in-chief. But there is a huge difference between being the host of an afternoon talk show and being in the Oval Office.

For openers, as the host of a TV show, she could get away with announcing in 2008 that the only contender for the Democratic nomination she would have on her show was Barack liar-nObama, even though race was the only significant difference between liar-nObama and any of the other left-wing candidates vying for the nomination. NOprah showed that so far as she was concerned, race even trumped the fact that liar-Hillary Clinton was the first woman in American history to undertake a serious run for the White House.

As a TV personality, NOprah was even able to get away with saying, as recently as 2013, that there were people, “generations of people, older white people, who were born and bred and marinated in prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”

Imagine if some prominent Caucasian suggested that younger generations of blacks – those marinated in victimhood by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, mad-Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, scum-Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Barack liar-nObama and NOprah, herself — will have to die off before we can achieve anything close to racial harmony in America.

NOprah wouldn’t be the first person to have her reputation seriously tarnished as a result of succumbing to the siren call of partisan politics. The highways of our political history are littered with roadkill bearing the names of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Dr. Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Gen. Wesley Clark, Pat Buchanan, Admiral James Stockdale and Rev. Pat Robertson.

If I had Ms. NO-Winfrey’s ear, I’d suggest she relax and just enjoy her money. If, for no other reason, she should consider her consort of 31 years, Stedman Graham. It’s nobody’s business but their own why they’ve avoided getting married. But if she’s the president, where’s that leave old steadfast Stedman. He certainly wouldn’t be the First Lady, but neither would he be the First Man. That would of course be Adam.

He would have to settle for some undignified title like First Laddy or Main Squeeze. NOprah owes him a kinder fate after all these years.
