Respite

We get one day off from State-Run TV today. Yay. All networks gavel-to-gavel impeachment droning yesterday. Complaints all over the net. More tomorrow. Cable News isn’t enough?

Anyway. No worries. Deval Patrick has joined Mayor Mike now in the ever-growing Democrat scrum. Can Hillary be far behind? While Schiff & Co. grind along. It’s all nuts.

So. 4-hour binged Back to Life. Wasn’t Fleabag. Daisy Haggard isn’t Phoebe Waller-Bridge. But. She’s good. As was the cast. It was absurdist earthy and in the end sweet.

Im Peach Pit

In the giddy gleeful atmosphere of the media’s hype of impeachment inquiry on TV, Brian Williams made the ecstatic declaration that “Impeachment will be in the first line of Trump’s obituary”.  Yay. Colbert had an Impeachment Eve tree and celebration.

The public hearing has begun. At 10am. 11:30am. Two guys still droning on. Everyone looks like they are taking a nap. Including the Dems. Imagine what the rest of the country is feeling. Yawn. And can’t watch anything else. Already in a ditch.

Trump may have done something wrong. Yes. But. This is not going well so far. Keeping the public interested. Probably not.

Cold Reality

After a balmy Vet’s Day enjoying Central Park with holiday throngs, today it’s wintry. That’s November in New York City.

Niners v. Seahawks was a nail-biter to the end. A defense-fest. And. Jimmy isn’t Joe. Montana.

Speaking of Joe. Biden. A CNN Town Hall in between quarters. More like a love-fest infomercial. Erin Burnett lobbing soft-ball questions designed to promote sobbing over Joe’s woes as the future Consoler-in-Chief. At least he didn’t smell her hair. Highly pro-Joe Grinnell College audience questions as well. So. Wait ’til the debate.

Pre-Emption

Nikki Haley’s new book says that John Kelly & Rex Tillerson tried to get her to join the Insider White House Resistance. Hmmm. As I’ve said. She’s going to be the first woman President.

Dems will hold impeachment hearings on all broadcast channels this week. Pre-empting daytime drama sweeps. Guess who’d be more interesting? Schiffty-Schiff or Shifty Victor. Yep.

Warning. Choose to askew Catherine the Great. Insipidly stupid & gross. Helen Mirren as a horny old hag. Couldn’t do it. Meanwhile, Jack Ryan is ripped from the headlines. An action-packed diversion.

Run Mike Bloomberg!

Voted for Mike Bloomberg in 2016. Wrote him in. Now he’s filed for Alabama Presidential Primary. Biden weak. Warren can’t win.

Bloomberg’s a guy who actually runs stuff well and gets things done. Public sector. Private Sector. Can spend his own bucks. No need for fundraisers. Beholden to neither K Street nor Wall Street. But. Would middle America vote for a short billionaire Jew from New York?!  They should. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Run. Mike. Run.

President Mike

Foxes in Hen House

Don Trump, Jr. is hawking a book.Triggered. He & ex-Fox-bot-current-girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle broke into the screeching coop at The View. Where five women typically engage in an indecipherable free-for-all. More so today. A few low blows hollered through. Blackface. Rape. Roman Polanski. Whistleblowers. The hens were a mess.

In 2018 a senior White House administration official calling him/herself Anonymous wrote an Op-Ed in the NYTimes. As part of the Insider Trump Resistance. His/her new book is coming out soon. The Warning. I guessed Kirstjen Nielsen or Nick Ayers then. Now. No clue.
