The storm that I have in mind is one that sweeps the board for the GOP in November. What might its ingredients be? Here’s my non-exhaustive list:
An economic recovery that is largely limited to States governed by Republicans, while States controlled by Democrats continue to flounder.
A quick, nationwide economic recovery, including a stock-market rally and the rehiring of millions of workers.
Solid evidence supporting Tara Reade’s claims about Joe Biden.
A rancorous Democrat convention which, at least, leaves Biden badly damaged and results in the abstention of Bernie supporters in November, and which saddles Biden with a VP candidate who will drive away independent voters (e.g., Stacey Abrams).
A pre-convention deal that allows Biden to withdraw gracefully (though not without shame) and substitutes a more dynamic and less tainted candidate who has his own baggage (e.g., Cuomo and his failure to protect nursing homes from COVID-19).
SPYGATE (A.K.A. RUSSIAGATE)
The indictment of senior officials (e.g., John Brennan, Susan Rice, James Comey) of the Obama administration on charges related to Spygate (e.g., obstruction of justice, conspiracy to obstruct justice, filing false claims with the FISA court, perjury).
AND A CLINCHER
The inclusion of a thinly disguised Barack Obama as an “unnamed” conspirator in the indictment.
The collapse of Iran’s regime.
An attempt by Iran’s regime to disrupt the flow of oil from the Middle East that is met with prompt, devastating, and decisive action by the U.S.
The death or overthrow of Kim.
Conclusive evidence of China’s malfeasance in the COVID-19 pandemic.
There must be a lot more, but that will do for a start.
