Here’s How This Is Going To Work

November 25, 2015

OI am going away for a long weekend to a place with no cell reception and no wifi.  I will be with the people I love the most and we will do fun stuff.  We will probably go into town once a day to pick up email and check to make sure everything is okay.

Da Chipster has agree to keep the shop open, which is a treat for everyone.  Before I leave, I will program a Do It Yourself Blog Post every day if case DaChipster gets a better offer.  Feel free to say anything you want to but keep it clean.

I’ve also scheduled a few things that will post at pre-determined times to entertain you.

I will be back next week sometime, rested and belching.

And don’t break into my house.  Marsha the retired parole officer will be staying here, with a big gun and a vicious dog named Precious.  They both have handled worse guys than you.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.



Well, Lookie Here

It appears that the Benghazi committee did no damage.

But a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds the Democratic front-runner and former secretary of state is better-trusted on dealing with the terrorism threat, with her biggest edge over Donald Trump.

By 50 percent to 42 percent, more Americans say they trust Clinton to handle the threat of terrorism than Trump …

I dunno.  Running around playing bully seems like a really good idea.  The Raving Maniac Doctrine just might be Trump’s legacy.


In Case You Were Wondering

Oh, the polls.

Donald Trump tops a new poll of candidates Americans think are most likely to say something inappropriate during Thanksgiving and ruin the meal.

The survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling finds that 46 percent of Americans think Trump would say something to kill the mood surrounding the turkey feasting.

I dunno where people get that idea.

You Broke It, You Bought It

Dana Milbank said about the best thing I’ve read about the Donald Trump takeover of the GOP.

trumpRepublican elites are panicky about the durable dominance of Trump (and to a lesser extent Ben Carson) in the presidential race. They are right to worry, but I don’t feel much sympathy. Trump is a problem of their own creation.

Trump gets ever more base in his bigotry — and yet, with few and intermittent exceptions, rival candidates, party leaders and GOP lawmakers decline to call him out. So he continues to rise, benefiting from tacit acceptance of his intolerance.

The GOP created him and now the things they used to say only behind closed doors of the board room or on the golf course are being yelled through a bullhorn.

To my ears it sounds like a teaspoon in the garbage disposal but Republicans think it’s a sweet melody.




Yes, I Prefer Corduroy Myself

I think this is the deal:  You can be wildly racist or you can spell. Apparently you cannot do both.

Thanks to Willie for the heads up.
