BERNIE AND AMY: WHY NOT?

Bernie Sanders was the most impressive person on the stage last night at the Democrat Debate. He believes what he says and communicates at gut level. Conservatives love to call liberals hypocrites. It’s hard to make that charge stick against a guy who gets his suits at Goodwill and haircuts for free at the Barber

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.

IRAN: PLAYING A SHORT STACK

There’s a poker analogy hidden in the confrontation between Israel, the USA, and Iran. It’s like two players with lots of cash, Israel and the USA, decide they want to break a third player, Iran, who is low on cash but who’s been around a long time, 4000 years and counting, and can still play.

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

SEVEN WITH A CHANCE…AMY ON FIRE…PLUS COUNTRY BOYS

KAMALA HARRIS. Smoking hot with the eye of the tiger. Great listener. Infectious laugh. Lots of charm. Smart. Tough. Charismatic. Question: Can our President and our Dominatrix be the same person? AMY KLOBUCHAR. As they say in the South, “You say you like Amy Klobuchar, I been liking her.” Calm. Almost sleepy. Very smart. Not

BACK TO BASICS

When things get crazy slow everything down and go back to basics. The great truths have not been repealed….ignored, yes…but not repealed. Consider: NATURE (AND POLITICS) ABHORS A VACUUM (PARMENDIES, PHILOSPHER, GREECE, 485 BC) The Office of President of the United States is essentially vacant. The occupant is happy to spend his days at parades

WE’D BE BETTER OFF IF HE WAS A DRUNK.

Yeah, I’m talking about Trump, our president. At least if he was a drunk, there could be an intervention. He could get help. Get in a program. AA. Something. Unfortunately, he’s stone cold sober. We’re seeing Trump at the top of his game. This is who he is. We’re on notice. How much more do

STILL CAN’T HATE TRUMP

A while back, I said I can’t hate Trump. Still can’t. On Hillary, I’m having a hard time getting to where Barack Obama got with Hillary back in 2008. Remember, that is when he said to her at a debate in NH … “You’re likable enough, Hillary.” In my opinion, Obama exaggerated. But, he’s a

CHANNELING REAGAN I END UP FOR BERNIE

I'm for candidates that are capable of looking at the 7.4 billion people in the world as part of a human family, even if they live in Iran or Israel or Mexico or Mali or Gaza or Gabon. I'm for candidates that are capable of doing the right thing even though it involves confronting and
