Holt in the Name of the Law

 

Dear Lester Holt, Thank you for moderating the debate Monday night between Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton Abedin and myself this Monday night. Your exquisite journalistic equipoise rendered the evening spectacular in its moderation. If I may, I would like to append a supplemental point to one of my responses, which was sadly foreshortened by the […]

The Scam of the Earth

 

Bill Clinton discovered PHILANTHROPY as a post-presidential preoccupation on the same dictionary page as PHILANDERING. It seemed a fitting segue from a career corrupting the political; now he could corrupt the charitable. Sixteen years hence Bill’s wife is running for President, albeit with an ambling shambling gait. In that pursuit, she is enjoined to engage […]

The Good Collar: Hillary and the Chaplain

 

She can beat any chap, can our Hillary! Indeed President Obama believes she is more qualified for the Presidency than even such an alpha male as his own self. More qualified than George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and even Teddy Roosevelt, she speaks shrilly and carries a big lipstick. No chap can stand up to her, […]

Conventional Wisdom: ‘Go Pound Sanders!’

 

“Twerkers of the world, unite!” This classic slogan was ready to back up the candidacy of Comrade Bernie Sanders for the Presidency until it was derailed by debit, debility, and debasement… Debbie for short. While poor Bernie was working hard rallying the faithful in state after state, the game was rigged so that all Hillary […]

Standing Tall on the Platform

 

The Talmud (Yoma 22b-23a) poses a challenge to the man of virtue, fighting for noble causes, who is belittled by obstructionist forces. On the one hand, if he does not avenge the honor of his mission “like a snake,” he will be trodden underfoot, unworthy of serious consideration as a visionary. On the other hand, […]

The Queen’s Gambit

 

Crooked Hillary née Hillary née Secretary Clinton née Hillary Rodham Clinton née Senator Clinton née First Lady Clinton née Hillary Clinton née Hillary Rodham née Hillary Diane Rodham will not be named on an indictment, nor listed as wanted under her many aliases. Indeed a more unwanted person can scarcely be imagined. The decision not […]

Who’s Who and What’s What

 

New York City always bubbles like a teapot, but today it is aswirl with an ornerier tempest than the norm. Famous hedge funds, famous philanthropists, respected institutions, all in the eye of the storm. The current uproar has consumed New York society. As one prominent attorney put it, “no one is talking about anything else.” […]

Let Trump Be Trumpet

 

“Trump will lose,” the naysayers keep neighing in my ear. While Democrats have a mystical belief in their leaders, Republicans tend to the pessimistical. Indeed the Democrats should be called the right, because they think they are always right, and the Republicans should be called the left, because they expect to be left behind. Winners […]

Lying in State

 

The OIG (short for oi gevalt) of the Department of State has issued a report to the effect that Hillary Clinton, like Cleopatra and others who surrounded themselves with snakes, has a big asp problem. What else is new? The purpose of government reports is to restate — with excruciating detail, laborious argumentation, and ponderous […]

And the Winner Is… John Kasich!

 

In the past I was no devotee of Kasich’s Scriptural exegesis, as when he discovered Obamacare tucked neatly into his Bible. Still, his campaign this time did strike a resonant chord with its worshipful vibrato. I believe him when he professes to seek God’s purpose for his life.
