KICK THEM WHEN THEY’RE DOWN

JULIAN CASTRO blew out his image as an Altar Boy who spends most of his time helping crippled children cross the street by kneecapping a slightly confused Joe Biden and proceeding to fundraise off the encounter. In the era of “never apologize, kick them when they’re down” politics Castro may have hit on something. He

JILL BIDEN COMES OUT FOR JOE

JOE BIDEN is not going to draw 100,000 in Waterbury, CT in the rain at 3AM as John Kennedy did two days before the 1960 Election but he’s a good guy and Jill Biden says he can win. The former Second Lady has credibility and unique standing amongst Democrats. Her intervention was timely and effective.

KAMALA GAMBLES AND WINS

Twenty Democrats gathered in Florida last week to talk Politics. All were announced candidates for President. One of the Candidates, Joe Biden, had every reason to believe it was his turn to be President. He’s been a national figure since 1972 when he won a seat in the US Senate. He’d been Barack Obama‘s Loyal

IRAN: STAY’IN ALIVE

Sure, Iran did that thing in the Gulf of Oman. Why wouldn’t they? They decided its time to demonstrate they didn’t want to get jerked around forever by sanctions designed to strangle their economy. Sanctions for what? For keeping the deal they made with Obama. Yeah, Barack Obama, the guy who could think and talk

OBSERVATIONS NO. 3

TRUMP WANTS TALKS WITH IRAN. Israel Cheerleader and MSNBC host, Chuck Todd, looked like there had been a death in the family. How could an American President want to talk about peace with Iran without Israel’s permission? Who does Trump think he is? Obama? “The Saudis will go Bonkers!” Like Chuck Todd gives a rat’s

DEMOCRATIC PARTY DRAFT TICKET: PELOSI-MUELLER

Our Country needs an Intervention. We need the best we’ve got. Nancy Pelosi and Bob Mueller are the best we’ve got. Donald Trump and Sarah Sanders and Stephen Miller and Jared Kushner and Robert Barr are not the best we have. They’ve shown themselves to be a second string collection of liars and opportunists who

OBSERVATIONS. NO. 1

  HAS TRUMP HACKED THE POLLS? How hard would it be to hack the polls? Not very hard at all. Why would anyone want to? Think about where we are now. The Conventional Wisdom holds that Trump can’t be removed from office because his base is still with him. We “know” his base is still

TRUMP. ADELSON. PELOSI.

Donald Trump loves the image of himself sauntering across the stage showing a clenched fist or better yet…two clinched fists. Like he is actually in charge of something. Or, maybe a former war hero basking in well earned adulation. Hardly, on both counts. Trump is a fraud. He is a kept man. He does what

NANCY PELOSI GETS A LIFE

In 1987, the Congresswoman in the Northern California District where Nancy Pelosi lived, Rep. Sala Burton, died of cancer. Before she died, Sala asked Nancy to consider running for her congressional seat when it became vacant. At the time, the youngest of Nancy’s five children was a senior in high school. Nancy decided she had

I KNOW I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE

I know I’m not the only one who likes and has supported Barack Obama and ended up supporting Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation as a Justice of the Supreme Court. How could that be you ask. Easy. In politics, hate (or dislike) is a far stronger motivator than love (or like). That’s not my bright idea, it’s
