Trumpland uber alles!

May 05, 2016 by Ugh | 7 Comments
I await the sober and serious statements from the #Nevertrump folks about how they support Trump given how much he has "grown" as a candidate since a few weeks go. I estimate mid-June, certainly before the GOP convention.

City. Hill. Shining.

Nothing to see here.

Last chance today Rubes. Can you pull a win out in something other than the outer rim territories like, Minnesota, Puerto Rico, and maybe Hawaii? UPDATE: Guess not. Shucks.

It's Trumps all the way down....

Trump! There is a guy who donated $1,000 to Rubes in my office and I am tempted to put up a Trump sign just to annoy him, but I don't think that would go over too well with anyone. Plus by virtue of his only primary win in Minnesota, Rubes is now in the lead! So the joke would be on me! Ha ha.

GOP Choices

Feb 23, 2016 by Ugh | 5 Comments
Here is my proposition: That from a Democrat's point of view, Trump is the "best" choice, beating out Rubio and Cruz from a pure issues standpoint (let's ignore how he might end up governing from the White House as a practical matter). My argument would be that Trump says a lot of outlandish things, but he's just saying out loud what Rubio and Cruz also believe but are more...careful about how they put it (e.g., on immigration, "enhanced interrogation"). Whereas, on other issues (e.g., abortion, social security) Trump actually has a much more left leaning view.

Clearly the only obvious course is to confirm whatever qualified nominee Obama sets forth. Anything less would be uncivilized.

Ladies and Gentleman, Marco Rubio. The GOP establishment candidate. UPDATE: "Though generally seen as cool-headed and quick on his feet, Rubio is known to friends, allies, and advisers for a kind of incurable anxiousness and an occasional propensity to panic in moments of crisis, both real and imagined." Perfect!

Is the Presidential Election Really not until November?

Jeebus. And isn't there someone the GOP can serve up that isn't batsh1t insane? Ricky Rubio is as close as it seems they can get and he's still nuts. Maybe Trump is playing everyone.

I need a financial advisor

For after I hit the Powerball tonight.

We followed the procedure...

Maybe something is wrong with the procedure then. Also, see generally, use of force by the police.
