A dazzling show of music, vocals, and ballerinas is slated to parade across the country this coming autumn.

Representatives of the mainstream media are also featured, in a tightly grouped little chorus wearing very short ballerina costumes.

Some say these MSM performers are flaunting the shortness of their dresses while heaving up a white hip here and there, and intoning:

We are you
you are we
happily one family . . .

Mr. Mueller at lead ballerina is magnificent in rose-colored stockings and apparel generally. At times he carries a rose in his teeth while smiling.

The cast includes Mr. Brennan, Mr. Comey, and sundry Russian gentlemen employed by The State Department.

Especially moving, near mid-performance, Mr. Mueller stands with right foot on left knee, intoning:

Maybe I’m right, and maybe I’m wrong,
Tell you what honey I came on very strong,
With Crowdstrike to guide me what more can I say,
And then there was Brennan, with his Steele Dossier . . .

At this point, Mr. Brennan, fully clad in ballerina garb but on roller skates, moves rapidly around the stage as the audience cheers itself hoarse.

Most moving, in a tender scene the lights dimming, the spotlight focuses on a bench with a full, glorious moon behind it.

Two lovers appear with flowers in their hair, holding hands and touching cheeks, silent but eloquent as they seat themselves on the bench.

The one—head of the DNC fixing the nomination for Hillary--points to the moon image.

The other—the Democratic Party’s Nominee for 2016—inclines her head, shaking it softly as the moon image transforms into a witch-like figure with long nose.

Mounted on a broomstick with a witch’s hat, this black figure with the face of Vladimir Putin swoops off across the continent.

Enter Mr. Comey in tuxedo, white camellia at the button hole.

A hush descends. He speaks.

“The question really is--would you take a bullet for your country?”

“And would you fire off a round or two for your country?”

“And not far off all that would you lie and deceive and misinform, for your country?”

Mr. Clapper and Mr. Pompeo come forward to applaud vigorously at this point.

“And would you expect your country, led to believe Trump induced Putin to interfere with the election and . . ."

"After all that emphasis and repetition . . ."

"Your country would let that juicy little narrative go?”

“I mean seriously?”

Applause at this point is enormous.

The New York Times review next day:

“Russia-Gate Follies--superlative and riveting! Dare we reveal a tear dropped from our eyes!"

"We could not restrain from leaping to a standing O--time and again!?"
