“The News Conference” : Old pap and I think it was Chris Matthews who made a comment likening our illustrious leader’s performance to Jack Nicholson’s in the film, “Two Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” It was very close! Where were the guys in the white jackets? The “presser,” as the online wags call it, was surreal (a term I’ve used recently to describe this administration), and if you missed it, you really should go find it on “youtube!”
Could anyone watching yesterday’s 77 minute fiasco conclude that this man is completely sane? No! The dude is definitely crazy; in a fiendishly clever manner, he intended to move the “news” from the problems emanating from the White House and his incompetence to his battle with the “media.” His “base” must love it, but the majority of us old Amuricans who did not vote for him have to be getting very scared! The alternative, Mikey Pence, and the unfettered Republicrats, will prove every bit as dictatorial.
Mercy, As Professor Irwin Corey, who passed away a week or so ago at age 102 , once said, “If we don’t change direction soon, we’ll end up where we’re going.”
For the moment, both of our storied political parties seem to be in denial; the Demoblicans of the lost ballgame, and the Republicrats of the nut case they have on their hands. Hence, it is difficult to see a very happy ending to this mess in which we find ourselves.
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
Quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln. Note: It’s not universally agreed that Lincoln actually said it, but it became a very successful advertising slogan. Apropos?
We can only hope this time-honored saying will hold true in these insane times,
Buster and his old pappy (who remembers happier times)
PS: Old pap just caught President Trump’s “America First” bunko speech at Boing in S.C. where the applause was somewhat subdued, possibly due to his previous threat to cancel the new Air Force One due to the price. He told them, “Believe Me!” at least 20 times in the 12 minute talk. Now, on to Orlando, FL for another campaign rally!
