Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo sees that the phrase “the new normal” is starting to pop up with increasing frequency.  I heard it on some teevee ad last evening and saw this morning quotes from several Blue State satraps employing it.  And now at work.

Ol’ Robbo hates this phrase.

It seems to me pretty clear that whatever the medical origins of the current unpleasantness may have been, the thing has morphed almost entirely into a politickal will to power matter now.  So far as I can see, “the new normal” translates into “our boot on your neck”.

Ol’ Robbo really hates this phrase.
