Admiring the Admiral

Retired Admiral John Hutson said about Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, “Donald, you’re not fit to polish John McCain’s boots.” Of course, this was a complete red herring as we all know that John McCain prefers loafers (see Sarah Palin as former running mate).

Trump rescues bloggers, but at what cost?

The Democratic National Convention got off to a rocky start as Bernie Sanders believers appeared ready to take the Jonestown route rather than endorse Hillary Clinton. But the Democratic convention soon settled into thoughtful, rational, stirring speeches presented by prestigious politicians, everyday people, and A-list celebrities not named Scott Baio. What is a political blogger to write about?

Upstaging the Elephants

The time is nigh for the Democrats to show that a national nominating convention can be substantive and offer clear plans for the country, and not be a thinly-disguised WWE backstory of the feud between Terrible Trump and Killer Cruz. But I think if the Dems want to try and sway some on-the-fence Trump backers to vote Democratic, here are some suggestions to add a little pizzazz to their convention.

Plagiargate Update: Melania Plagiarism Scandal Broadens

While it appears that Melania Trump’s speech last night at the Republican National Convention did include similar words and thoughts that Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech used, that likely unintended cribbing could have and should have been easily explained away. Instead, the Plagiargate scandal has now just widened.

Troy Story

Donald Trump has been making “birther” claims this whole campaign that Ted Cruz is not a natural born citizen and not eligible to be elected President. Well, he was born in Canada, eh? I am not prepared to go into a Constitutional interpretation here as both Cruz and Trump weave in and out of the Constitution whenever it suits their needs. My point is that after losing to Cruz in the Wisconsin Republican primary election, Trump has completely confused his birther argument against Cruz along with his followers.

Trump Threatens Cruz’s Wife

It seems completely normal to hear that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is threatening Ted Cruz, but now the wives are involved, the gloves are off and food may be spilled.

After an anti-Trump PAC tweeted out revealing pictures of Melania Trump from a GQ photoshoot, husband Donald came to her aid and threatened via twitter to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz. He didn’t provide more details about what dirt he was planning to dish on Heidi. I hope it is not the police report from 11 years ago that indicated she was having some mental health incident. Yawn. I mean, she MARRIED Ted Cruz. I think anyone would have mental health challenges being married to that creepy guy.

Marco? Rubio! Marco? Rubio!

In honor of Marco Rubio’s crashing and burning presidential campaign, I suggest the kid’s swimming pool game of tag formerly known as Marco Polo now be called Marco Rubio. That’s about the only thing that will ever be named after him as it is becoming clear that there will never be a Marco Rubio Presidential Library. Consider this …

Best. Reality. TV. Ever. Except …

Wow, the series of 10 Republican Presidential debates taken together has been the best reality television series ever. Despite the lack of substantive discussions or facts, there was drama, comedy and conflict, exactly what you want from reality TV. Each debate saw candidates get “voted off” the main debate by how they polled with us, the general public. We even saw some “get rescued” from the junior debate and get back to the main stage when their poll numbers rose, again thanks to us. But there is just one problem.

Trump Continues Insult Onslaught Undeterred

Republican presidential primary front-running candidate Donald Trump continues his campaign of insults without apologies. This highly unusual strategy was initially thought to be sure to backfire and be short-lived, pandering only to the lowest stratum of US society. However, that has not appeared to be the case, and Trump continues his insulting barrage against individuals and groups. Continue reading

Fox Business Network Promises Smoother Republican Debate

Republican presidential hopefuls should feel more comfortable with the next debate hosted by conservative-friendly Fox Business Network. The last debate hosted by CNBC featured significant squabbling between the candidates and liberal-media moderators with plenty of perceived “gotcha” questions. Fox Business promises a smoother format that will permit the candidates more opportunity to present their campaign platforms without interference from partisan moderators. Continue reading

Random Thoughts on the CNBC Republican Debate Candidates

Rather than debating who won or who lost the CNBC Republican debate, I am pleased to offer random thoughts on each candidate.

Chris Christie – Is there any doubt that Christie bets on daily fantasy sports? He was sure quick to deflect that topic.

Mike Huckabee – I was not sure if Huckabee is running for President or for Donald Trump’s VP slot.

Carly Fiorina – She may want to talk to the House Benghazi Committee before challenging Hillary Clinton to a debate.

Trump Demands More at Debate

The third Republican primary debate will be shorter this time, truncated to two hours due to demands from candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson. Perhaps they believe that if the debate goes longer like the previous ones that they will eventually say something so stupid that it will deter voters, but that has not happened so far. I mean the voter determent, not the saying something stupid part which has been constant during this primary race. Continue reading

Minor Republican Debate Promises to be Stimulating

Once again, the upcoming Republican candidate debate will be preceded by a debate among the candidates that didn’t make the cut for the main debate. Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham will meet in the junior debate before the ten top candidates debate. In an effort to generate interest, any interest, in the undercard debate, the four candidates have agreed to change the format of the debate to a strip poker game during which they will casually debate the issues. This format was only approved under the condition that NJ Governor Chris Christie not be allowed to participate under any circumstances.

Dr. Ben Carson Inks Deal with Comedy Central

Comedy Central can’t wait for Dr. Ben Carson to drop from the Republican primary race. A source inside Comedy Central has revealed that the network has signed Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson to star in a Comedy Central show that is currently being developed for him. Continue reading

Benghazi Hearings Infuriate Jim Webb

The House Benghazi committee hearings with Hillary Clinton are infuriating former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb. Webb was angered at receiving about 50% of the speaking time Hillary Clinton enjoyed during the first Democratic debate, prompting him to quit the Democratic primary race and ponder a run as an Independent. “It’s just not fair. If Hillary gets questioned about Benghazi, then I want my chance and equal time to be questioned about Benghazi,” ranted Webb.

First Democratic Debate Rocks Polls

In the wake of the first debate between the Democratic primary candidates, the polls reflect some significant changes and a new contender. Not too much changed at the top as Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders still lead the polls. Clinton polls extremely well with those wearing pants suits, getting approval from over 95% of that demographic. Sanders earned high marks from the “no original teeth” demographic, especially in the Northern states. Those in that demographic polled did complain that the debate was on too late, it conflicted with Matlock reruns, and the mashed potatoes at dinner were too lumpy. Sanders did not do so well in the “no original teeth” demographic in the South where that demographic cuts across all age groups.

Biden Camp Wary of Open Podium at Democratic Debate

While Joe Biden ponders whether or not to throw his hat into the Presidential race, his advisers are working behind the scenes to remove the open podium that is available for him at the first Democratic presidential debate. “In case of Biden break out podium number 6. Here it is folks,” says senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Twitter.

Open Podium for Joe Biden
Open Podium for Joe Biden

Biden’s camp is concerned that if Mr. Biden does not participate in the debate, then the viewing public may find the open podium more dynamic, interesting and appealing than the actual candidate himself.

Trump Miffed By Democratic Debate Snub

Donald Trump is making headlines again as he is reportedly upset about being left out of the first Democratic presidential debate. Trump blasted the Democrat’s decision to exclude him saying, “I was a registered Democrat for years and am a front-runner for President. I belong on that stage to take on Hillary, the old guy and the rest of the losers. Nobody can beat me this election. Nobody can beat me except me. I want the opportunity to beat myself.” I think most of America does.

Democrats Establish Ground Rules for First Presidential Debate

In an attempt to avoid the circus-like atmosphere at the Republican debates, the Democrats have established some ground rules for the first upcoming CNN debate between the Democratic candidates. Of the five Democratic candidates that have been invited to the debate, only two will be allowed to speak, poll leaders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. A spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee explained, “We want the leading candidates to be able to freely exchange ideas. We want the other candidates that are wasting their time and money not to waste ours and just butt out. But you know us liberals, we want to appear fair to everyone.” Continue reading
