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 The great truths have not been repealed….ignored, yes…but not repealed.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

AFTER IOWA

If HILLARY CLINTON is going to be President, she needs the election moved up by six months. Her supporters aren't getting any younger. In Iowa, Bernie Sanders beat the bejesus out of her with people under 44 and in the under-30 segment, Sanders beat her by six to one. Seriously. The closer people got to
