Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
- Five weeks ago, 58 concert attendees gunned down by a madman in Las Vegas. One week ago, eight pedestrians and cyclists run down by a madman in New York City. Yesterday, 26 church-goers killed by a madman in Texas. God rest all of their souls, and let’s hope this latest mass killing receives the thorough and honest investigation the victims and their families deserve.
- Speaking of mad men, we have this bizarre story of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul having been attacked by his crazy liberal neighbor while he was mowing his lawn. Sen. Paul suffered five broken ribs in the attack and will be home-bound for the foreseeable future. Anyone who has suffered broken ribs knows that any movement can produce intense pain, thus eliminating any chance of the Senator returning to Washington, DC anytime soon.
- The attacker, some guy named Rene Boucher, was arrested by local police and charged with just misdemeanor assault resulting in minor injury. What the hell? Five broken ribs – including 3 displaced fractures which can cause major internal injuries – may seem minor to the Bowling Green Police Department, but they wouldn’t feel that way to anyone who has had to suffer through such an injury. The Bowling Green police aren’t saying if politics was a motivation for the assault, but it sure seems like politics might be playing a role in the nature of the charges.
- Just another reason why I’ll always be a Dodgers fan – Vin Scully is not a madman. But the greatest baseball announcer who ever lived and 67-year voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers had this to say on Sunday when asked about his reaction to the ongoing protests of the national anthem by NFL players and coaches:”I have only one personal thought really. And I am so disappointed,” Scully said at an event in Pasadena, Calif. “And I used to love during the fall and winter to watch the NFL on Sunday. And it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year. Didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war.”
“So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach,” he continued. “I will never watch another NFL game.” Getting the message yet, Mr. Goodell? Probably not.
- Long-time Democrat political hack Donna Brazile isn’t a mad man, but she sure sounded like a mad woman in her interview on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday fake news program: “Those telling me to shut up … I tell them, ‘Go to hell.’ I’m gonna tell my story,” she said. Obviously, the pushback from all the Clinton and Obama shills related to Ms. Brazile’s “tell-all” book about the Clinton theft of the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination is getting pretty intense.
- The fall-out from excerpts from Ms. Brazile’s book provoked the stooges who ran the Hillary Clinton campaign to publish an “open letter” that contained the following unintentionally hilarious passage: “We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees. It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health.” Even in expressing their outrage over a book, these clowns feel the need to prop up their pathetic Russia collusion fantasy. They are nothing if not consistent.
- One of the excerpts from Ms. Brazile’s book seems particularly odd to many observers. In it she claims that the still-unsolved and very suspicious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich “haunted her”, causing her to make sure she kept her shades closed at DNC headquarters because she feared snipers. Given that the DNC’s official position has been to support the Washington, DC police department’s theory that Mr. Rich’s killing was just a “botched robbery” – even though literally nothing had been stolen off of Mr. Rich – it seems odd that the DNC’s chairman at the time would live in fear for her own safety in the aftermath.
- Then again, if I were engaged in business dealings with the Clintons, I’d probably keep my shades closed, too. Wouldn’t you?
Just another day in madmen and mad women America.
That is all.
