Trump’s “I’m paying for this microphone. Mr. Green!” moment

hqdefaultOkay young ones: Many moons ago, before the dawn of the Internets and reality TV.  Before unintelligible, inscrutable games like Candy Crush Saga, Grand Theft Auto and Soccer.. before even The Simpsons… there was a man named Ronald Reagan. He was an actor who became a governor who became President. Like him or not his  presidency was consequential. He probably won the presidential race that year (1980)  on one cold, blustery night in New Hampshire. One moment that night made him the GOP front-runner and deflated George HW Bush, his chief rival  – and all he did as bark “I paid for this microphone, Mr. Green!” Please read about it here. It is very interesting, and perhaps pivotal to American history.

DEMOCRATIC BITCH HUNT IS ON! WH and WAPO Go All In- SUPPORT Old White Guy With History of Groping To Stop Woman From Winning Top Job.

Let me start here in case you don’t read further: If you are a Clinton partisan it is now clear that the only way to stop the coming coronation of Joe Biden is to rip his reputation to shreds. Find a scandal. Any scandal. And pummel.

Here’s a wonderful clip of  Uncle Joe after some hooch to get you warmed up: 

I mean it. The signals are everywhere and like 2008 ONLY a disqualifying story about Biden will stop it. And ONLY non “liberal” media types can force the story to be told. Clinton partisans are going to have to “Go Rove” to win. OR – they could also suck it up, nurse some well practiced resentments  and watch Clinton be slowly and painfully dismissed. Again.

Trump Meet Shark

I realize it is tumblr_nq5gawyhCe1rasfs9o1_500dangerous game to say that Trump is Done. I’m on record as “not hating him”,  however there is a fine line between being a refreshing PC bashing, post modern Archie Bunker… and being an asshole.  Yesterday, Trump lilted over into total asshole and quite possibly jumped the shark. He seems to have no self control. What is the point of insulting Megan Kelly AGAIN? It’s just mean and stupid. In reality she is quite good at her job. I’ve liked Trump in this race but here he is just being a dick. Oddly this, along with this, may be the moment things start returning to normal on the GOP side.

WAIT -HOLD THE PHONE, did I speak too soon? Look at this Trump beat down.. it’s obnoxious as Ramos would never have been called on and no doubt had to yell out and keep yelling…but Trump exhibits what is so appealing to so many. His signature TCA: total command assholery. He’s a muppet version of Mussolini…and that guy got an entire nation to buy his act for decades.

Please vote in the candidates poll here.
