The Nobel Prize

The Nobel Peace Prize will be awarded in a few days, and I'm just saying....Alicia Garza, Opel Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors, the three co-founders of Black Lives Matter.

The Lap of Luxury

I kind of feel sorry for Melania Trump.  I suspect she sold her youth for a luxurious life style for herself and her family.  I doubt she ever suspected that her oaf of a husband would run for the presidency and hold her up to a  certain level of public humiliation.

One of the sad things about the whole plagiarism things is that it has drawn attention away from the ravings of Dumbo's supporters at the Repug convention.  In general, I hate Nazi analogies, but let's be honest,  Rudy was a few minutes away from calling for concentration camps for American Muslims.  General Michael Flynn was also pretty sad.  Apart from being a horrible public speaker, until Donnie came around, the retired General was a life long, pro choice Democrat, yet he was willing to throw it all away for a very slight chance to be on the losing ticket.  And would someone please tell Antonio Sabato Jr., that President Obama is not a secret Muslim.  Now I have my doubts that the Prez is all that religious, but come on, the next thing we'll see is some sort of birther nut opening his big mouth, and wouldn't that be pathetic.

On Trial

I'm opposed to death penalty.  Opposition to the death penalty does not allow for exceptions, and that includes Dylann Roof.

Number 3

Of course a mainstream/Republican independent Presidential candidate can win and here's how.  All the stop Trump Republicans need to do is put forward a Repug who is able to peel votes away from both Donny Dumbo and Hillary.  If he or she can win as little as two or three states that candidate has a good shot at throwing the election into the House of Representatives.  Then, if the so called main-streamers remain loyal to their savior, they can make that person President of the United States.  Mitt, John McCain, Marco, this may be your only chance at the big job.

I'll probably get into trouble for writing this, but Michael Jackson will fade away while Prince will live forever.

American Democracy

So, here's the worst case scenario for American democracy.

Despite her big win in New York, Hillary Clinton goes back to her losing ways against Bernie Sanders.  She goes into Philadelphia behind in elected, pledged delegates,  but, unlike eight years ago, the super-delegates remain loyal, and she gets the nomination.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump arrives in Cleveland with a significant lead in actual votes as well as pledged delegates, but not the majority he needs to secure the nomination.  The Republicans, after multiple ballots, reject both Trump and his nearest competitor, Ted Cruz, and instead pick John Kasich as their standard bearer.  Donald Trump, angry and hurt, launches a third party run.

The election is over, Hillary comes in first, Trump second, and Kasich third.  And one faithless elector casts a single electoral college vote for Paul Ryan. No candidate has enough votes in the electoral college, so the final choice for President is left to the House of Representatives.  They choose Paul Ryan, a man who hasn't received a single cast vote from anyone.

And that's how American democracy finally dies.

Teddy Boy and the Women

Teddy Boy is running as an evangelical Christian.  Of course his sexual dalliances are relevant.   Meanwhile, our favorite hacktivists, Anonymous, have posted phone records that may show a link between the Texas Canadian and D.C. madam Deborah Palfrey.

Now, let's be clear.  Heidi Cruz's appearance is not an issue, but as long as the press is fixated on who's wife is hotter, they aren't questioning Mrs. Cruz's employment at Goldman Sachs.  The Wall Street firm already has too much influence in Washington.  What happens if a Sachs employee is First lady?  Will it be a repeat of Dick Vader and Halliburton?

Donny Dumbo vs Teddy Boy

Let's be honest.  Ted Cruz is worse than Donald Trump.  Trump may be a jackass, but at least he's a malleable jackass.  


North Carolina just passed one of the most stringent anti LGBT laws in the country.  Should gay and transgender activists disrupt the NCAA championship game featuring the North Carolina Tar Heels?  I think so.  I mean why not?  There should be consequences for North Carolina and taking it to their beloved basketball team seems just about right.
