Cynics and pessimists are annoying because theyre usually right. 2018 will be a very good year for them.
If we look ahead, through an appropriately jaundiced eye, we can see a year filled with crises unresolved, political maelstroms and too much unaccomplished. In short, a pretty normal year.
Lets start with the obvious.
The media, in their war against Donald Trump, have not yet begun to fight. Impeachment talk will run parallel with their breathless expectations for the Mueller investigation, which will continue at least past the November election. More indictments are coming but none will be on anything remotely connected to any conspiracy with the Russians to sway the 2016 election.
The Democrats will roll out their old, tired, wounded and lame as presidential contenders for 2020. The media will amuse themselves with polls of each in opposition to Trump, each other, and lots of meaningless rot. Hillary Clinton will start making noises about a 2020 run, as will Joey Biden, Bernie Sanders and Fauxcahontas. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who recently compared himself to Edison and Gandhi, will hint at running, which is almost as funny as ol Bernies ambitions.
Not to be outdone, Sen. Jeff Flake, Gov. John Kasich, and several other Republican squishes will say that they arent interested in running against Trump in a 2020 primary, but if theyre called on by the people to do so (See Episode One of the BBC series, Yes, Prime Minister.)
Congress will return to find that its even less capable of doing anything than it was last year. The Republican majority in the Senate is nothing of the sort. At best the 51-49 split is really a 49-49 tie because of the frequent and lengthy health-related absences of Sens. John McCain and Thad Cochran.

The “media” is Disney and Comcast
This author should give up political predictions and move on to horror writing.
We do have a fighting chance with Trump. With Hillary, it would have been lights out.
My prediction is that the Republicans will maintain majorities in both Houses.
2018 will be a DEPLORABLE year for liberals, IMHO!! Thad and John are the poster old men for term limits... :-)
Jed Babbin is the one who said, when France refused to join us against Saddam Hussein, that “going to war without France is like going deer-hunting without an accordion.”
