    What Do Political Junkies Do?

    September 27, 2016

    All of it. They immerse themselves into the war of words, a game of gimmicks, the daily drudgery, the monotonously mundane and the revoltingly repetitious. Because while each new day unfolds the old & forgotten to [...]

    On the eve of the Democratic National Convention, I have given it a few days to think about when I saw on the Republican side. If the goal of any convention is to introduce the candidate & the party to the general [...]

    Donald J. Trump formally accepted the Republican nomination for President of the United States last night. He then proceeded to scream at the American public for the next hour and twenty minutes. He wisely chose to use [...]

    So far the only positive news to come out of the Republican convention is the two speeches by the Trump children. While they were both fairly well done, I find myself mildly disgusted with the conservative pundits [...]

    Ted Cruz’s Long Game

    July 21, 2016

    Like everybody else on Wednesday night, I had no idea what to expect from Ted Cruz’s speech at the Republican Convention. There were stories floating around that he wouldn’t endorse, but after seeing Scott Walker [...]

    An entire paragraph of Melania Trump’s speech last night was plagiarized from a 2008 Michelle Obama speech. That is unfortunate. More important is how it is handled. How a campaign is organized and run, how well it [...]

    The media made sure to mention several times that it had been 36 days since the Primary effectively ended and a winner emerged before Bernie decided to officially endorse Hillary. At least it would have been humorous if [...]

    So the other day I shared on Ezra Klein’s article titled, “It’s Time to Admit Hillary Clinton is an Extraordinarily Talented Politician” on my Facebook wall and that of various political Facebook groups I belong [...]

    My Next Prediction

    June 17, 2016

    On June 6th I predicted a Hillary win on Tuesday a Bernie concession on Wednesday and an Obama endorsement on Thursday. Two out of three ain’t bad. Today I look into my crystal ball following Bernie’s Press [...]

    I have seen a glimpse of the Bernie Sanders Political Revolution and it is pretty ugly. Evidently, Bernie’s revolution will consist of misogynistic insults, vandalism, conspiracy theories, the doxing of party [...]

    The Democratic Primary is essentially done. Hillary Clinton will win the majority of Pledge Delegates. She will win the majority of Super Delegates. She will also win the popular vote. There is no way that Bernie [...]

    Bernie Sanders has an over inflated sense of his own support and is miscalculating the depth of support his voters have for his specific agenda and belief system above all others. While it is true that Bernie does have [...]

    One of my favorite political figures in history is Harry Truman. I’ve read several biographies of him and he was a fascinating figure. He was personally honest and fair. He was also the favorite of the very [...]

    Bernie has run a great campaign. It hasn’t been a winning campaign, but it has been a great campaign. Bernie supporters often talk about how the primary process is rigged and needs to be more democratic. Have they [...]
