With greater frequency than I’d hope, the headlines tell a story of our hopes, rather than our reality. This morning’s RealClearPolitics list includes the following four:
It’s Becoming Clear Trump Colluded with Russia
- New York Times
Mueller Has Failed to Deliver, Only Trying to Hurt Trump
- The Week
Cohen Deal Was a Tipping Point for Mueller Probe
- Slate
With Cohen Deal, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Exoneration
- RealClearInvestigations
Obviously, not all of those can be correct. In fact it is likely most of them will prove to be bad guesses about what will come.

At this point the Mueller probe is a Rorschach test, reactions to which tell us more about the reactor than about the thing reacted to. In describing the world we see we reveal our inner selves.
