I know what ‘it’ means well enough, when I find a thing. It’s generally a frog or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?- A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale

Usually in my writing MBS stands for Mortgage Backed Security (kind of a bad thing that ought to be closely regulated) but in this case ‘it’ stands for Mohammad bin Salman of the House of Saud. The history of the United States’ relationship with them is a dark and tangled one that didn’t start with Trump and Kushner and the temptation to dive deeper is strong.

Now I could do it, but that could take weeks and be thousands of words long. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!

Fortunately John Oliver has volunteered.
