    Trump stinks.

    Great God Almighty.

    Trump stinks!

    How about a Mike [Bloomberg] and Michelle [Obama] ticket?

    How about a Mike and Oprah ticket?

    Undecided?   Here’s why: . . . 

    Why Don’t We Know Which Democratic Candidate Can Beat Trump? 

    •A stable race is suddenly not.

    •The “electability” candidate is bad at running for president.

    •The “least-electable” candidate has the best chance of winning the nomination.

    •Can a woman beat Mr. Trump?

    •Mike Bloomberg’s money can buy a lot, but probably not the nomination.

    •Black voters are the backbone of the Democratic Party, but …

    •There are other mysteries.

    •One thing we do know for sure.

    •No one can tell us who can beat Mr. Trump, because no one knows.

    . . . IMHO, I personally think haruspicy gets summarily short-shrifted far too often these days? …

    Interesting quote over the weekend: a reporter asked Mike Bloomberg how it would feel for two billionaires to run against each other in November.

    Mike's reply: "who's the other one?"

      Haruspicy means divining the future by reading animal entrails.  It costs you the vegan vote!

        It’s the 21st century . . . 

        Why ya’ think the gods invented MRIs?  (hint:  so we could know their wills . . . Duh.)

        Progress through science, and other stuff . . .

        (The vegans don’t need no convincing, anyway — they’re all already in the bag for Bernie . . . just another religion by any other name.)

    I really miss having a President . . .

    . . . I mean, I know we got Mr. Putin, and all.

    It’s just not the same . . .

    . . . I’m kind of an old sentimentalist when it came to having an American President, perhaps even one elected by a majority — hell, even a plurality — of the American voters. Too much to ask, I spose’?

    It’s good to have a day of remembrance.

    Shouldn’t the flags be at half-mast? . . .

    I'll admit, I agree with Bloomberg on this one.  Those Medicaid Queens and their kids getting all their healthcare are a huuuuuge problem.

    Harry Truman gets the last word re: Bloomberg
