It used to be that political scandals came in different shapes and sizes. One politician would have movie star mistresses stashed away, another one would have an affair with an intern, another would decide he had to break into the DNC headquarters for no damn reason at all. In other words, variety was the spice of life vis a vis political scandals.
Not any more. Nowadays we have but one scandal. It is metal. It has hinges. It puts Pandora’s box to shame.
It is the genie in the bottle, the banshee at the window, the dark at the top of the stairs. Whatever your nemesis is, real or imagined, nothing can eclipse the one-size-fits-all scandal: what else, but Hunter Biden’s laptop? Nobody has a better handle on this than Brent Terhune.

That says it all. My favorite line is, “What do you say when you come home at 4:00 a.m. and your wife says she smells another woman on you?” You intone the mantra, you recite the catechism of all MAGA world, Hunter Biden’s laptop.
It’s been surmised that Hunter Biden intends to sue some of these clowns who have been harassing him and making him into a household name, when he’s neither a celebrity nor an elected official. That could happen and it would be good to see.
Meanwhile, bookmark this clip and play it for the people in your life, friend and foe, reasonable person and MAGA cultist alike. It goes a long ways towards explaining what we are about to see in the new congress sitting in January. Having neither platform nor policy, all they’ve got, pathetically, is Hunter Biden’s laptop.
