Better Than The Pokey-Go Stuff

The Epic Battle Continues

She, On The Hustings

After the less-than-Democratic convention (the structure of which was based on an extended Amway commercial), She has received the Expected Bounce -- yet, people still do not like her. Gosh.

Trumpwarbler. Doubling Down

Meanwhile, Trumpolina continues to inflame everything, and to preen in public. There are articles issuing from every online, print and teevee news organization about Trump's past, his messy present; his murky future. Even the current Pestident, champion of PTT, has stepped up and said in measured tones that Trump is a wart, a carbuncle, and unfit to be himself.

(That's all true, as far as it goes. But all kidding aside, sitting Presidents are the de facto head of their political party -- but in my long Dog's memory, I can't recall any Pres making the kind of flat declaration which Obama made yesterday.)

I understand that Trump is a buffoon and his chances of winning the general election are little better than 30 per cent -- but at this point, the number and the scope of the anti-Trump attacks seem a bit like beating up a loud, obnoxious drunk who has defecated on himself... just because they're loud, obnoxious, and have defecated on themselves. Even narcissistic billionaires, if they're beaten enough in public, can make their opponents appear the bullies.

But, as I keep barking, this Bozo is his own worst enemy and will not, cannot win the general election. And the campaign continues, because it must: ninety-plus days of Night, an amazing spectacle which we must endure (because America is the land of the strong), and which will have all the allure of drinking an entire bottle of Ipecac enrapture the nation.

MEHR, MIT GRUNKA-LUNGAS:  ... and the official tracking now rates Il Duce's chances of winning at below ninteen per cent.


  1. i hope you're right that trump cannot and will not win the election

    however, there are two reasons why i am not sure

    1)in general terms, sometimes surprising things happen, not necessarily to one's advantage

    2)in more specific terms, his opponent is hillary - aptly represented by the "soul sacrifice" image you have chosen

    may the Creative Forces of the Universe have mercy on our souls, if any

  2. As it's been said, difficult to say what the future holds... however, even given anything-can-happen: If a bird flies consistently in the same general direction over time, it will probably reach a particular place. If Trump doesn't change his spots between now and November, he may not get more than the die-hard protest vote. So long as he can be painted as disconnected from 'normal' 'acceptable' social conduct, 'unfit as a world leader', the more it will erode his support among the less die-hard. HC only needs to continue pressing that meme.

    There may be some tragic event in the U.S. that pushes voters on the fence to make a fear-based decision. There may be a new revelation regarding HC that has an effect. But if Trump stays consistent -- if we keep getting the bird in the same way -- there's a greater chance he's doomed. Not a bad thing... except, Hillary.
