Politico backs a Bush/Romney GOP Ticket

Roger Simon is in the limo with Bush & Romney taking pot shots at the GOP "clown car" (cleaver, right?) which he claims is now a clown van (LOL). I'd call it a clown short bus, but that's me.



Simon is a shill for GOP establishment talking points and sober minded analysis of GOP political consultant approved conventional wisdom. So let me unpack the GOP clown short bus for him.


  • Jeb Bush - Scion of the most improbable political dynasty in American history - how these Greenwich, CT blue-bloods have pulled it off is baffling.
  • Chris Christie - A fat bully who loves Bruce Springsteen AND the Dallas Cowboys - that's fine for Jersey, but shows deep personal disfunction. Loving either Springsteen or the Cowboys would raise serious red flags, but loving them both disqualifies the candidate.
  • Rand Paul - Ron Paul's son and named after a girl and he does love Liberty but Libertarians scare the shit out of the GOP.
  • Ted Cruz - Cuban/Canadian badass and probably the sharpest knife in the GOP drawer but watching him twist the nuts of the GOP Senate bulls is so much fun that I hope he never leaves.
  • John Kasich - A postman's son (did you know that?), the guy knows how to balance a government budget but I think his personality is too goofy and he does a very strange hand movement when speaking so maybe Sec. of Whatever.
  • Scott Walker - Dragon slayer with a hard-on for Public Sector Unions and a will to win and win and win - The GOP could do worse.
  • Mike Pence - Taller than Mitch Daniels and more articulate than Dan Quayle - even Vox can figure this one out.
  • Mitt Romney - Rich, 2 time looser, Mormon who looks like a President - he "want's to be President" as do they all.
  • Rick Perry - States rights Democrat who supported Al Gore in the 1988 Presidential race and doesn't know what Federal Departments he would eliminate if he ever had the chance - which he won't.
  • Ben Carson - The good doctor basically has zero qualifications to be President of the United States but why should that stop him?
  • Susana Martinez - She's a Hispanic Woman who was an unhappy Democrat until some white men sat her down and explained that she really should be a happy Republican and then she became Gov. of New Mexico which happens to be the bluest of the blue States so...
  • Marco Rubio - The cherub of American Conservatism, he was thrown in the snake pit of Senate immigration working group early on and that was that.
  • Rick Santorum - He won Iowa in 2012, but who gives a damn what Iowa thinks? 
  • Bobby Jindal - The happy warrior from Louisiana will face withering racial stereotyping from the sensitive left - already has - and as we know, they don't let up.
  • Carly Fiorina - Ran HP into the ground, served as "advisor" to John McCain then lost Senate race to a true political hack named Barbara Boxer - She never had children and cut off her breasts in a cancer fight - who knows, she might win.
  • George Pataki - The mayor of Peekskill will get a lifetime pass because he defeated the Sfachime in 1994 and, for him, that's a good thing.
  • John Thune - 6'4" of GOP man who understands Agriculture policy and Commerce - he ain't running for President.
  • Lindsey Graham - Didn't the GOP run Lindsey Graham in 2008? I know it's imperative to win the South Carolina's primary for any Republican candidate to secure the nomination but can you imagine having to listen to that voice for 4 friggin' years!
  • Donald Trump - This man is the prototype loud mouth self-made financier who can say virtually anything and take any position because 1. he's got a wall of money around him and 2. he'll never get nominated. Not serious, but entertaining (you know, a clown).
  • Bob Corker - He actually understands Foreign Policy and President Corker sounds fabulous but I don't see it - stay in the Senate and do your job.
  • Mike Huckabee - See Rick Santorum.
  • Peter King - OOFAH! Fucking Pete King as President?! Sweet Jesus, how did he get on this list? 
  • Bob Ehrlich - Who? (just kidding) I know, I know - Turtle from the turtle state - Lost to (My Favorite) Martian O'Malley who, as the world turns, also wants to run for President for the other team - let's not have a rematch.
  • Paul Ryan - He's already out - Go Scott Walker!


But there's one contender to whom Simon gives special attention. One that strikes fear in the heart of every beltway pundit who ever tapped a keyboard and every K Street lobbyist or political consultant who plays the game.





Roger Simon says this was a "speech of such incoherence that even veteran Palin-watchers were puzzled." You be the judge, but it sounds like classic Mama grizzly to me - shooting wolves from a chopper for the love of the hunt. If I were Roger Simon I'd keep my head down and stay out of her sight.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.
