NEW COLUMN, “Trump Floated Like A Butterfly And Stung Like A Bee,” appeared on the  Unz Review, WND.COM, the Quarterly Review out of London, founded in 1809. It is now a feature on American Greatness.

An excerpt:

The first presidential debate, on Tuesday 29, was also the first bit of fun we’ve had in a while.

True, President Donald J. Trump failed to float his theory about that “big fat shot in the ass” Joe Biden likely got from his handlers, to allow the Democratic candidate to nimbly prance onto the debate stage and, “for two hours,” be “better than ever before.”

But, like Muhammad Ali, the heavyweight boxing legend, POTUS floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee. A masculine force at full tilt, Mr. Trump provided plenty energy and entertainment as he blattered Joe Biden, while being funny in the process.

“If you didn’t enjoy that debate, you are a soy-boy, beta cuck,” a fun-loving fella tweeted out. Soy-boy Shapiro was having none of the fun stuff. Glum and sanctimonious, Ben tweeted out: “I literally have no idea who won this debate. I just know we all lost.”

Deep, man.

The self-styled philosopher-king’s funereal pronouncement received the benefit of a Michelle Malkin reenactment. Don’t miss that hilarity, 3:40 minutes into her post-debate podcast.

In letting out a collective primal groan that was music to MAGA ears, Ben-Shap was joined by every liberal and Never Trumpster on the left-wing game reserve.

Dana Bash of CNN lamented a “shitshow,” in which “the American people lost.” “The debate was a disaster for democracy,” her shell-shocked colleagues yelped. (Well, good, because the founders of this republic didn’t think much of democracy.)

Certainly, judging by the rabid frothing and foaming on CNN, Trump did indeed win Tuesday’s debate. Anderson Cooper whinged to Republican commentator Rick Santorum: “It’s not even funny. Are you proud of the president? Santorum could not conceal a grin: “He came out HOT.”

Livid, Van Jones deployed his best rhetorical device: repetition. “Three things happened: The president refused to condemn white supremacy. The president refused to condemn white supremacy. The president refused to condemn white supremacy.” Gloria Borger, also at CNN, required sedation.

A man infatuated with his own cleverness, Jake Tapper bewailed “the worst debate in history, a hot mess, inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck.” (Who wrote that “hot mess”?) Tapper forgot an interesting tidbit: Such fires are typically lit by the “idea” called Antifa.

Yes, Biden had called Antifa an idea. …

UPDATE (10/2): In reply to the  Comment:

“The hive media”: I will have to steal that. Have you, sir, heard Ben-Shap speak? It’s hard to believe anyone would listen to a rapid-fire chipmunk. Content: mediocre, Republican fare.

Dennis Kucinich was a very nice presence in politics. The late Robert Byrd was a great constitutionalist, too, a Democrat who could not escape the idiot comments from Republicans about his past. Byrd opposed Obama Care and other extra-constitutional adventurism.

    Another great column (what else have we come to expect from you), and I especially liked the knockout blows you deliver in closing—another Mercer trademark.

    First off, I need to thank you (and several good and like-minded friends on Twitter) for watching the debatea, so I don’t have to. I generally go to sleep around that time of night, plus I’ve come to expect (more so in the pre-Trump era) dreary affairs that were often little more than mutual press conferences.

    The reaction of the hive media is a good way to judge how well our guy did. If Benny and the clucking (cucking?) hens of CNN are reduced to outrage, tears, and the use of scatological nouns, then I have to guess that POTUS did all right. Pray tell, when Ben-Shap uses the word “literally,” does he pronounce it like a grown-up, using four syllables, or does he speak in the pretentious manner of the post-adolescent high school debater and use only three (LIT-truh-lee), as comically sent up by Rob Lowe, playing a chuckleheaded small town bureaucrat, in the tv show Parks and Recreation?

    Perhaps the idolaters of Democracy will someday realize one day that Trump wasn’t traducing the rules of their much-preferred system, that he was merely taking that system and its rules as he found them, providing the citizens of a democracy with what they want and making sure they get it, in Mencken’s memorable words, “good and hard.”

    I believe you’re right when you say that a few yucks at the expense of Biden and a few tears shed by Anderson Cooper are about the best we can expect anymore. It’s the Left’s own fault. They ran out of good ideas a long time ago and now the best defense they have amounts to lies, hoaxes, and bogus accusations (“you’re a racist!!”). I would rather see genial gentlemen like Ron Paul or Pat Buchanan making thoughtful points against, I don’t know, Dennis Kucinich maybe, but, sadly, democracy fetishists took care of that possibility years decades earlier.

    Barring peaceful secession or real states rights (yeah, right), discussion of which is of course banned from the public square, I fear civil war is inevitable, unless the right simply surrenders unconditionally, hoping for the best. Maybe we are at the close of a long historical cycle and the world will need to undergo a long Dark AgeS period, before civilization can begin anew. To trust Oscar Wilde on the subject of civilization (and why wouldn’t we?), America never had one anyway.

    So in the meantime, go Trump! Apres Trump, Le Deluge.
