You may have read that the tide is turning.  I wrote that just the other day and was pleased so many of y’all wrote me to cheer about it.

When do we know that COVID hysteria has become so yesterday?  Maybe when establishment media begin to say so, too.  In Thursday’s Wall Street Journal, columnist Daniel Henninger shouted it:

Today, it’s fair to say that no one but the hopelessly credulous believe much of anything Mr. Biden, Jen Psaki, Anthony Fauci or Rochelle Walensky says about Covid and Omicron. The list of doubted authorities worldwide could extend to the horizon. 

When it’s obvious enough that mainstream media recognize it, it’s probably actually arrived.  If you’re marking your calendars, mark this day or week or month as 1 A.C. (for After COVID).  A new era has arrived.

Here’s what it means: when the government isn’t trusted, people stop believing it.  When people stop believing the government, they stop obeying it.  When they stop obeying it, government becomes at best an annoyance, like your wacky old uncle that no one pays attention to.  Like Joe Biden.

Although President Slow Joe has been wacky for at least an entire year, it seems that most of America is only recently finally acknowledging the fact.  Better late than never.  Doesn’t that feel wonderful?

If the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page is any measure, Biden has succeeded, although not in the way he hoped to.  He has succeeded in getting people to stop obsessing about COVID.
