Its lead actor is the closest we’ve come in our nation’s capital to an action figure -- the Mar-a-Lego version of Batman and the Joker rolled into one ...  As report after report indicates, he attacks, lashes out, mocks, tweets, pummels, charges, and complains, showering calumny on others even as he praises his achievements without surcease. Think of him as the towering inferno of 21st-century American politics or a modern Godzilla eternally emerging from New York Harbor.'
