Mission Accomplished

South Carolina has delivered it's verdict and JEB! is out after spending over $100M to win he lost and lost and lost. Now everyone is wondering where his votes will go - Rubio, Gov. K, ...? Um, I guess those are the only two options left (unless they go to Donald Trump, which some undoubtably will because Trump and Rubio's ideological support is almost identical). As was noted long ago, and sighted several times on this blog, the Donald has captured the sweet spot of the GOP electorate and there's no way to move him or his supporters. He's played a game of King of the Hill and he raced to the top right from the start and has been pushing down every opponent consistently and with dispatch. Those opponents have included every GOP rival who have, at times, pounced in coordinated attack but also include the broad press corps, liberal AND conservative pundits, Hillbilly, Obama and even the Pope. Pundits claim that Trump can't win because his favorability rating is too low, but if you had $500 Million in negative advertising dumped on you the odds are lots of people would think poorly of you too. What's uncanny is how Trump is able to move the favorability score once he comes to town and starts meeting people - it's an amazing trait or quality that he possesses and I'm not sure it can even be learned. I don't know if there's another candidate in the field that can change peoples minds and perceptions as effectively as Trump.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
