'We want to believe that we imagined these things. But we fear we did not.'

Yes, it's Dave Barry with his Year in Review for 2017

I haven't yet culled some good tidbits from it yet. Here's one:

January....Assisting the president as he pursues this agenda is a crack White House team that includes Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, Michael Flynn, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer, all of whom will, in the coming weeks and months, disappear like teenagers in a “Friday the 13th” movie. In the Trump White House, you never know who will get whacked next, but you know somebody will.
