Left at the Station

Aboard a train in the station, we may think our ride is pulling away from the one sitting opposite to us, until its caboose suddenly flies past the window and out of the station, leaving us gaping in surprise at the power of sight over sense. The liberal media across the border is under a similar illusion. For months they've been telling themselves that the Trump Express was going nowhere while their iron horse sleepers were puffing steadily ahead. But Trump's mainline has finally pulled out of the station like a bullet on business, and there they are, rubbing their eyes in disbelief, still serenely oblivious to the fact that it's the ground that's moving, right under their two left feet.
