Quickies: Quotidian Brilliance Dept.

     Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds doesn’t write a lot at his famous blog, but every now and then he shoots off an important, eloquently-phrased bit of insight:

     PROFESSOR JACOBSON: Trump As Human Shield: Trump may not be the only thing standing between “us” and the deranged Resistance mob, but he’s one of the things.

     Of course, just as law enforcement is there not so much to protect us from the criminals as to protect the criminals from us, the “human shield” thing goes both ways. There are a lot of people in America eager to string politicians from lampposts, and Trump’s presidency makes that less, not more, likely. But the beneficiaries are not equipped to appreciate that.

     I couldn’t have put it better.

Good point Ontorian! Reminds me of that line from The Watchmen: "I'm not in here with you, you're in here with me!"
