THE TRUMP EFFECT

From Mike the pillow man, to Barr the jowl man, to the collection of unknowns and lesser knowns spaced out, literally and figuratively, in the White House Press Room it was just a matter of time before Trump would have them stoned on Trumpspeak. We’re talking about playing Three Card Monte in a room with

BIDEN TO AMY: LET’S DANCE

Has Joe Biden just announced that Kamala Harris will not be his choice for Vice President on the Biden Democratic Ticket and Amy Klobuchar will? I think he has and I think he will. First, Biden said he would pick a woman as his running mate. Second, he said he would nominate an African American woman as his first

HEY JOE

After a Day of Impeachment Hearings, Trump looks like he’s winning. Plus, the Conventional Wisdom about you is that you’re a gaffe machine and a “consolation prize” nominee. Do yourself and the Democratic Party a favor and go on FOX in the next few days and subject yourself to everything they’ve got. Suggest you go on

A CHOICE FOR DEMOCRATS.

Democrats have a choice. Go big, go bold, hit hard and win. Or, be careful, politically correct, don’t offend anyone and lose. Trump has demonstrated the power of hate and the big lie. It gives the base their sugar high. They’re going to need more, much more. Imagine what Trump will be willing to do in

IMPEACH? SURE. REMOVE? LONGSHOT.

Let’s cut to the chase. First, The Trump-Ukraine Marx Brothers Upside/Down Heist-Bungle is an Impeachable Offense. Don’t even worry about it. It’s not even a close call. The House will vote to Impeach on that, at least, and there will be a trial in the Senate. Bet on it. Mitch McConnell has said as much.

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

REAL AND PRESENT DANGER

The present mess, also known as the Trump Administration, cries out for resolution. Immediately. The Country cannot continue without a functioning Executive Branch. Right now, we do not have a functioning Executive Branch. We are running the risk of war, by miscalculation, or a crash in World Financial Markets followed by Depression. It’s that serious.

THE SAUDI REFINERY HIT: A SLICK PIECE OF WORK

Talk about timing… ten days before the opening of the UN General Assembly. Talk about execution… fifty percent of the Saudi Oil Production gonesville with no dead bodies. Talk about putting super heavyweight Buffet Brothers Mike Pompeo and Crown Prince MBS in a funny spot… just sitting there looking at each other waiting for someone

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.
