The legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz said he always read the Obituary column first each morning over breakfast because he was "so happy, so happy" not to find his name there.
Well, last week Bob Dole's name was there and his longtime friend and fellow senator, Joe Biden, delivered a beautiful eulogy. Thanks to a thoughtful photo montage of Dole and Biden together through the years that NBC played to the left of Biden's face as he spoke, we were reminded yet again of just how much Biden's face has changed over the decades.
Mysteriously changed more than his fellow elder statesman's faces have changed and in the wrong chronological direction. While time etched more cragginess into their features and liver spots multiplied on their temples, Biden's skull grew less square, his jawline more refined, his "turkey gobbler" shrunk dramatically, his right earlobe suddenly attached itself to his face and his liver spots grew fewer and fewer. In fact, he went from craggy elder statesmen to baby-faced septuagenarian.
Plastic surgery, you say? Perhaps but consider this: regardless of how old Bob Dole grew or how many years elapsed between "Dole Sightings," you always knew it was him. His face aged dramatically, but its essence never changed. Regardless of how old Donald Trump grows, you will always know it's him. His unique "look" is unmistakable. Pity we can't say the same of Joe Biden's face.
Once upon a time, well actually it was last night, Michael said something to the effect, "You've worked hard enough this week. Let's go to the American Legion for supper. I hear they're serving walleye."
They could've been serving shit-on-a-shingle and I'd be there with bells on! Any meal I don't have to cook is my favorite meal. (Can I get an "Amen," Ladies!?)
Now, when you enter an American Legion, you kinda assume that everone there is...duh! Pro-military, Pro-veterans, Pro-America. There are American flags e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e and not one damn mask in sight.
It's one of the places Michael can roll into proudly wearing his new T-shirt and no one's going to be offended. It says, "ALL LIVES MATTER...Except terrorists, rapists, child molesters, cop killers & anyone who hates America. Fuck those guys." (He wore it the county fair the other week and you should've seen the constipated expression on the guy who was wearing a "BLM" t-shirt. Priceless!!! If he'd tried anything he would've had the shock of his life: the guy in the wheelchair knows taekwondo! LOL)
Anyways, the American Legion was the last place I expected to meet a Trump hater yet it happened.
To be honest, I've been watching a little too much Jeff Dunham recently so when the guy said, "I hate Trump" my first thought was Walter's famous line, "300 million sperm. That's the one that got through."
That ain't right! Don't laugh at that!
Despite disagreeing passionately about politics, our conversation with "Tom" was cordial and I got the opportunity to study a man who obviously loved America...and hated Trump. A man who supported our veterans (or at least really liked walleye)...and hated Trump. A man who was interested in American history...and hated Trump.
He never gave a cogent reason either. Just kept repeating, "I hate the man."
Mister Dianne Feinstein aka Richard Blum Investor in Election Graphic Software for "Setting Up" Mainstream Media Edited Coverage (And Pelosi's Connected Too)
"Every day is election day." That's what it says on Dominion Voting System's homepage and it gave me quite a laugh! Yep, it sure is! We vote on November 3rd, November 4th, November 5th, November 6th...
But we're not here to talk about Dominion's software even though we all know it sucks.
No, the hot topic today is yesterday's assertion by General Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell, that the Third Mr. Dianne Feinstein (real name, Richard Blum) is an investor in voting software.
Snopes and MSN had a heyday "debunking" Ms. Powell's "undocumented assertion" by claiming the only software company Mr. Feinstein has invested in is AVID, a graphic and video software. No connection, they claimed, with Dominion. Nothing to do with the election. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Oh, they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, AVID has had a lot to do with elections per their 2010 brochure, but the MSM was right about one thing: their fraud is all graphics/video software based.
This is a rant. Plain and simple. If I don't rant here, I'll burst a blood vessel because I don't have President Trump's grace and patience. Within the first five seconds of the Trump Town Hall hosted by Savannah Guthrie, I was using words that would make a sailor blush.
Please tell me I'm not the only one.
In yet another example of Trump-debating-and-beating-the-Moderator, the Mainstream Media culminated a week of doing every possible thing to silence any anti-Biden news with this charade of a Town Hall.
How exactly is that supposed to serve the Democratic ticket!?!
Don't they know that a martyr is more attractive, not less?
