Revenge of the Bush

Grab'n some Bush
The Bush clan don't play it any different than the Clintons - Ask Mike Dukaka (Willy Horton) or John McCain (S.C primary) or John Kerry (Swift Boat). And I actually don't have a problem with that because politics if a tough business and if you get in the game you're going to get bloodied. And if you're taking on BOTH the Bush and Clinton crime syndicates you better expect to have both eyes cut by the 13th round of the fight - which is about where we are. Two more rings of the bell and we'll get a decision, unless someone can land a knockout blow and I know the challenger just took one to the kisser, but I don't see him on the mat yet.

There are a couple of reasons why Trump is still standing and one of them is what he actually said:
"When you're a star, they let you do it," Trump told Bush aboard a bus marked "Access Hollywood," the entertainment show Bush hosted before joining "Today" in May. "You can do anything. ... Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything."
It's the truth. Sorry people, I know it hurts to hear it and you wish it wasn't true but it is true and, as is his custom, the Elvis from Queens has blurted it out in an abrasive and direct fashion that makes the truth that much harder to swallow. If you're a star - a celebrity in sport, fashion, cinema, music, television, academia, philanthropy, etc. - you CAN do anything. Opportunities to grab some pussy open up in a way that mere mortals can scarcely imagine - Ask Billy Bush if you don't believe me because he knows all about it.
The unavoidable next question is: How many other people in the media have had similar conversations with Trump and, like Bush, decided to keep quiet? Bush is rightfully "embarrassed and ashamed" of his own conduct, but it seems unlikely that he is unique among TV news stars.
Umm, yeah, you can say that again. What a pathetic joke this entire "hot mic" story is - from start to finish it's a lie. Check out this bullshit from CNN Money on how it happened:
The videotape of Donald Trump that is shaking up the presidential election sat forgotten on a shelf at NBC's "Access Hollywood" until just a few days ago.
On Monday, according to an NBC source, one of the entertainment newsmagazine's producers remembered Trump's 2005 taping session with former "Access" co-host Billy Bush.
Trump's offensive comments about Alicia Machado were still making waves. And the Associated Press had just published a detailed story quoting former "Apprentice" employees saying Trump "was lewd and sexist" while taping the reality show.
With that in mind, a producer dug up the tape.
A producer? What producer might that be? Does that producer have a name?
No producer "dug up the tape" - This video has been waiting on the shelf for months and was released coincidentally on the day that WikiLeaks released John Podesta's email communications with HRC. There will be more. There will be a lot more coming out over the next 4 weeks and it's going to be an amazing thing to watch.

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…
