I’ve made it pretty clear where I come down on Steve Bannon and his contributions to American politics. But I have to agree with Sonny Bunch about the unseemliness of these ritual denunciations.
As much as I hate Bannon—and I think my loathing of him and his whole *thing* has a pretty decent track record here—there’s something vaguely totalitarian about the ritual denunciations from all his former allies for the benefit of the great leader.

Now, Bannon himself has been forced to confess his sins. Perhaps if his former friends and colleagues trot him around the White House lawn in a Dunce Cap, he can be rehabilitated.
