Winning Is for Losers

 

Democrats sure put a scare in Republicans this week and last. (Normally Republicans get scared just peeking into a mirror — just ask Rep. Jason Chaffetz.) First in Kansas, a Democrat came within 7 points of defeating a Republican in the special election to replace Mike Pompeo, now CIA director whom Roger Stone has taken […]

Rhapsody in Black and Blue

 

We were on to United years ago. Anyone who tries to turn Gershwin into a jingle is in trouble right there. That was just a short step from turning Gershwin into Muzak, which it promptly did as well. Then it turned out the airline was in the sardine-packing business. The only way passengers could survive […]

Politics With a Twist

 

As always, Ronald Reagan comes in very handy. One of his favorite anecdotes involved a pony. There was this young boy, an eternal optimist, who sure wanted to have one for himself. A concerned psychiatrist took him to a room filled with manure, as if a pony’s leftovers might dampen his enthusiasm. Instead, the boy began […]

Filibuster Bluster and Other Schiffs in the Story

 

Chuck wants to get nuked. Says he’s going to filibuster the Gorsuch nomination because, among other things, there’s a cloud hanging over the president who nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Has anyone seen that cloud? No. Is it adding to climate change? No. Is it a matter of just giving Scott Pruitt at […]

Don’t Get Maddow, Get Even

 

Program Advisory: Steer clear of MSNBC. Mother Maddow might still be doing the preliminaries about her career making and ending scoop involving a major 2005 development that wasn’t captured on tape by fool of fools Billy Bush. But she lied and her reputation died. “We’ve got Trump tax returns,” she promised as she enticed and suckered […]

Turning the Tables on His Pursuers

 

There’s been nothing like it since 1968. Let’s go to the videotape. The movie, Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen as the eponymous SFPD detective Frank Bullitt. It was McQueen’s greatest role — he let his eyes do his acting for him, always a wise choice in his case and boy was he observant this time. The […]

Impeach the Former President

 

The overlooked big news this week was the bloodless coup over at Random House, which saw the Obamas sign a joint deal for their White House memoirs at upwards of $60 million. Notice the gender games at work here. We don’t know if he gets $40 million, say, and she only $20 million. Pay inequality […]

Ladies Night at the Theater

 

The power of prayer proves irresistible, if led by a formidable military chaplain like our nation’s first lady. So what are the Dems going to do now? Call for a boycott of the Lord’s Prayer? No mean sinners ourselves, we keep them in our prayers as they proceed on their ceaseless rounds of mad resistance. […]

Last Train to Swampsville

 

It’s hard to drain a swamp. The folks in Florida could have told us. The other day a golfer in North Fort Myers had more proof than he asked for. All set to putt out on the fourth hole, suddenly he noticed a 10-foot alligator gnawing at his right ankle. A trusty putter in his […]

Whose Future Are We Talking About?

 

Time and history may have diminished them, but the Democrat Big Three remain entrenched, with room on the bench for no one but the tall guy, who as is his wont remains the odd man out. John Kerry was universally known as the greatest windsurfer in U.S. State Department history. Perhaps the Ninth Circuit’s recruits […]
