CLOSE THE DEAL

It’s closing time, Joe. Like the man said in the Movie (Glengarry Glen Ross), “Always Be Closing.” You closed on that pretty girl you met on the beach, way back when you were on Spring Break, your first wife (RIP). You closed on that Senate race when you were only twenty-nine freaking years old. C’mon,

WAR AND DICK LEBEAU

Trump needs a war. And, Joe Biden needs Dick LeBeau. Let’s go to War first. Sheldon Adelson would prefer it that way. He’s 87 years old and Trump is his last best chance to destroy Iran. I’ve played the clip of Sheldon at Yeshiva University twice. Take another look. According to Adelson, the way to

BIDEN CAN LOSE

I can’t get John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama out of my mind. They are my idea of Candidates for President of the United States. Happy Warriors. Cut from the same cloth as the original Happy Warrior, Al Smith, four-time Governor of New York State, and the first Catholic nominated

A WAR IF TRUMP WANTS ONE

Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson have a war all teed up for President Trump if he thinks he needs a war to win re-election. Timing is elegant. Iran is available. Use the Debate Sept 29 to take command of the stage. Remind us of your love for Israel. Commence hostilities first or second week of

JUST WIN BABY

Football fans will recognize the title from Al Davis, longtime owner of the Oakland Raiders. Joe Biden should have that phrase painted in bold letters on the ceiling in his bedroom so its the first thing he sees when he wakes up in the morning…which damm well better be before Six AM. You got work

CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITIES

I’m trying to figure out what’s likely to happen in our politics given the pandemic, Trump vs Biden, and African Americans demanding their rightful place in all aspects of American life. The best strategy I can think of, in order to make an informed guess about the future, is to eliminate things that clearly are

TRUMP: TALKING TO HIMSELF

Kennedy drew 60,000 at 3AM in Waterbury; Obama, 150,00 in Denver; Trump 6,200 in Tulsa, including staff, secret service, assorted flunkies, wannabees, and, supernumeraries. That’s about right. The universe is starting to make sense. The Trump Act is getting stale and tired. The “cover story” of shaking things up does’t wash. Deep state, Antifa (anyone

BIDEN: HOW BAD DOES HE WANT IT?

Anybody who has played or watched sports has heard a coach or or an announcer say “its going to come down to who wants it the most.” Think about the great winners in recent sports history…Brady, Jordan, Tiger. Great ability, sure. But what separated them from the pack was a ferocious determination to prepare harder

GOTTA GO WITH JOE

I’m not jumping up and down about Biden. He doesn’t do that for many people. I’m not looking to send him a check. I sent a couple to Tulsi, but that’s another story. If Joe was speaking to a group across the street (and mass meetings were allowed) I wouldn’t go. I’m afraid if I

SLEEPY JOE VERSUS CAPTAIN CHAOS

If you’re for Joe, how can you feel optimistic? What has he done that makes you want to say “he’s got this, he’s on top of his game.” Does he speak with passion and conviction that makes you want to send him a check. Has he ever given a speech that brought you to your
