a sacred moment in a secular democracy

Back wherever they came from?
Leave it to the The Ragin' Cajun to "teach" us about the futility in decrying a rigged systems - like there's never been any ballot stuffing in Louisiana. Oh no, the best you can do in Jimmy's opinion is cram in 100 fake ballots here and another hundred over there, you know, it happens but "a fundamental attack on the country itself" now that's going too far. Out of bounds to call into question widespread voter fraud because... well... er... um... well, it's like I say to my Tulane mush minds:
"I tell my students, if there's such a thing as a sacred moment in a secular democracy is when the former president gets on the helicopter and goes to Andrews [Air Force Base] to go to the plane to go back wherever they came from and a new president takes office. That's the moment, that's the key moment in any democracy because, you know, you lose, you leave or you're eight years up and you go and the new person comes in," Carville said.
If that's the case then his former boss has pissed all over that sacred moment from day one.
A. Bill Clinton would have never left office were it not for the 22nd Amendment - I dare say that he'd still be POTUS today if he were not forced, clawing at the door jam, from the white house by constitutional constraints. He loved it and (obviously) will do anything (including foisting his wife on America) to get back in the oval.
B. When Clinton's did get on the helicopter to leave the White House in Jan. 2001 they didn't have to go "back wherever they came from" because a month earlier they had purchased a $3.5M home at a steep discount of $2.8M in Washington DC (not a bad deal). Whitehaven is exactly what it's name implies - a haven from Little Rock, Arkansas and as white as Washington DC gets - whiter than the White House.
C. It is a fact that the Clinton team will do whatever it takes to win an election - including befouling the franchise - and don't care any more about the sanctity of it's democratic "underpinning" than they do about its "sacred moment." If they can rig the ballot box they'll do it without batting an eye - they're shameless.
James Carville know all this, and being the loyal in-fighter that he is, he'll gladly stuff ballot boxes, count hanging chads, hack computerized voting booths, drive illegal aliens and convicted felons to the polls and whatever else to swing the election. That's how it's done and if it's close that's how it will be done but I'm getting the feeling from brother James that he's not so sure it's going to be close. There's a sense of desperation on Morning Joe this September that wasn't there in August. As if the clown makeup is smudging and slipping off their faces and that even though the media always talk about the Clinton's "home" in Chappaqua, NY the voters are starting to figure out that the Clampetts actually live in NW Washington DC and they can't "go back wherever they came from" because no such place exists.

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…

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

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 audience (he calls them "…

New York Values

“Global Reach :30” CME Group—Commercial Spot from VSA Partners on Vimeo.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to use the island of Manhattan as my own personal driving range. I'm  in the futures and derivatives game and you never know what's going to happen. "Opportunities aren't always obvious" as I like to say and they "drop in" unexpectedly.


Sometimes it works out great.

Other times...


And those poor souls with a lump on their head don't like the game or putting the driving range on top of the Pan Am building. Last nights election was a long par 5 for the Constitutional Monarchist in this years election and he shot a triple bogey. One of the reasons:
"Unsurprisingly, it was Bernie Sanders who won the vast majority of the anti-Wall-Street Democratic vote." New York Democrats are crazy, but a majority of them are not dumb (in truth, a lot of the dumb ones have emigrated to Vermont) so while they'll flirt with "revolution" wh…
