never never never

Big win for the #NeverTrump forces tonight in Badgerland and let's face it - they needed a win. "Never means never" as they say which is the short way of saying not ever and by ever they mean at any time, at any point, on any occasion, under any circumstances, on any account; up till now, until now. An now is today! So these guys will never vote for the Elvis from Queens and they dumped everything they had on Wisconsin to make sure the good people of the State followed their lead.


On the other hand, there are those who never say never (never never never) and like Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith will keep on fighting to Make America Great Again.


One of those die-hards is Donald J Trump himself and he did not meekly accept the Wisconsin returns.

This Trumpian response did not make the #NeverTrump crowd very happy - They never, never, never are when it comes to Trump. The only problem for the nerds trying to take Trump out is that every single word of his statement is true (as usual) and they have to lie to make him just go away - which he won't. Without Trump last nights hero, Ted Cruz, would have been spending his February and March in his Senate office trying to figure out ways to piss off his colleagues and snipe at Jeb Bush locking up the required delegates to assure Bush the GOP nomination. The #NeverTrump crowed would be ecstatic that a proven and tested conservative like JEB! will be carrying the GOP banner into battle against Hitlery who also would have secured her parties nomination by February because Bernie would have had no swagger without Trump. Cruz (and Bernie) is an opportunist reaping the benefits that a Trump candidacy has provided him and he's making the most of it but I'm sure he too never says never.

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 viewershi…

The Democracy Quirk

Let it be said that Politico is one of the most worthless web sites with clout on the internet - it's like the Washington Post after a night of hard drinking in the Georgetown bars that passed out on a friends couch. Predictable and stupid at the same time - Also, the editors appear to despise democracy as a political science and as practiced here in the USA. Their latest "explanation" for the Trump phenomenon takes aim at the voters and their knowing ignorance which can be easily explained by the Dunning-Kruger Effect. The article written by shrink/educator David Dunning illuminates a big, glaring problem in any democracy, and that is, "we all run the risk of being too ill-informed to notice when our own favored candidates or national leaders make catastrophic misjudgments." Shit, now you tell us, for surely this is not a problem unique to 2016 and probably was in effect in 2000 and 1980 and 1968 and so on...
But as a psychologist who has studied human behavi…

Running Fence 2

You probably know that the Congress (specifically the Senate) and the POTUS are at loggerheads over Federal funding for the Big Beautiful Wall to be built along the US southern boarder. The reasons for this impasse are long and complex so a quick review of how we got here might be in order.

The Elvis from Queens glided down the escalator at Trump Tower (corner of 57th & 5th) and declared to America and the World that he intended to build A Great Wall across the southern boarder when he became POTUS because this alternate speech was never going to happen (KOTCB Alternate Universe 06/15/2015)A few weeks later candidate Trump was presented with a big fat brick of pain and suffering that served as the cornerstone of his campaign (KOTCB Dirty Sanchez)The physical Wall served as a curative slap in the face of the DC establishment who had, over the years, constructed an elaborate Folly Wall in place of the real thing (KOTCB Decius drops the mic)The idea of the Big Beautiful Wall began to…
