Here's what we're having tonight.

I'm gonna try to duplicate as much as possible.

Watching GF II.

Pacino has that 'dead eyed' stare DOWN.

Turns out tRump and Lincoln agree.


Deliver the goods
"You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on."


"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."

Who is Seth Abramson?


Please call your senators about senate confirmations. Please.

I did for the first time in my 76 years of life yesterday.

PLEAD with them NOT to confirm ANY tRump nominees until we have a complete, thorough, and independent investigation of the tRump - Putin - Russia - U.S. election involvement.

If his 'election' turns out to be as illegitimate as I think it is, then all of his appointments would be illegitimate and null and void.

You really need to do this, whether you're in a red or blue state.

I'm solid red.
Shelby and Strange.
Do it.
Won't cost you a dime.

I'm watching the last 30 minutes of "Casablanca".

It's a movie I never get tired of seeing.

An older couple in Nick's bar just drank a toast to AMERICA!
They had escaped some country that was now dominated by Nazis.
Now they were in neutral Portugal with passage to the United States.

Tonight I can't drink that toast.
I'm 76.

I've lived through WW II, the Korean "War" (Police Action)...Look THAT UP...
Viet Nam (vet), the Kennedy assassination, Watergate and Nixon's resignation, Gerald Ford's pardon of the asshole, Bill Clinton's impeachment, the 2000 sElection debacle, the first black POTUS.

I've seen a lot.


The repugs have gone into full PARTY UBER ALLES mode.

The country...the nation...and our well being no longer means a thing to them.
It's just all keeping in power.

THE most complicated, time consuming, recipe for tomato paste you'll ever see.

This, my cooking friends, is a HOOT!
OK, I do love the chef who posts on you tube as 'cookinginrussia'.
Check him out.

But this recipe is just SO way-over-the-top...


"I just want to make America great again."

"OK, how?"
"I'll just make us GREAT!"
"So, you're saying we're not great now?"
"NO! I didn't say that. WE'RE GREAT! THE GREATEST! I'm just gonna make us MORE great!"
"OK, so how are you going to make us more great?"
"I'll make us GREATER!"
"Yes sir, I hear that, but how will you do this?"
"I'll just do it. I can do that you know. I've done it before. Many times."
"Maybe so, but what are your specific plans to make America great?"
"I'll just make us great again. I have people working on that right now. It will happen. Mark my words. We will be great again. Not that we weren't already. But I'll make us greater. I have people working on that right now."

Good night.

Dear Republicans: Is this REALLY the best you can do?

OK, Rmoney seems to be, at best, the LEAST nutty of your opening field, with one glaring exception.

The opening field: Rmoney (the eternal candidate), Santorum, Bachmann, West, Gingrich, Paul, Cain, Perry, and assorted other loopies.

The glaring exception to the clown car bunch was Jon Huntsman.
He seems to be an actual person.
I think he'd qualify as an old fashioned moderate Republican.
If he had won your nomination, we might be in trouble now.

But you didn't.
No, your party has been co-opted by the tea baggers, birthers, evangelicals, and assorted other fringer whack jobs..
So Huntsman was SOL from the get-go.
Poor guy.

So now you've made your choice and you're stuck with the 'job creator' guy who loved to create them anyplace but here in the U.S.
The 'I have an elevator for my cars' guy.
In just one of his many mansions.
The 'My taxes are my business' guy.
Yeah, he understands what us 99% are dealing with.

You picked the guy who would have let U.S. automakers go down the tubes.
The guy who would have disbanded FEMA.
And the guy who has changed his professed positions on so many issues we need a scorecard just to try and keep up.

REALLY guys?
This is the best you can do?

If that's the case, then you deserve to lose and lose big.
