Retro Fit

Archie & Edith are at it again in the remake of All in the Family. Or. Is it Donald & Nancy? 2019’s latest Bickersons. As was evident from watching the retro show. Everything old is new again. And. Nothing much has really changed in the past forty-plus years.

Racism. Sexism. Political schisms.

Game of Spin-Offs

So. Once again a guy gets the big job. He’ll rule six kingdoms. Sansa’s left with one. If Bran was so prescient, how come he didn’t know that and save us all a lot of time. And weird white eyeballs.

Tyrion says that stories are the thing. His will be a show with maybe the reunion of Drogon and Jon Snow. Mrs. Jonas could have a Winterfell sequel with a new Night King. Arya’s travels a third series where she becomes a hit-woman and will finally use all of those face masks.

There is more gold in store for Benioff & Co.

Folksy Joe

Folksy Joe Biden. Maybe a few hundred folks at his low-key kick-off “rally ” in Philadelphia. Every time he said folks, swigged. Sloshed.

Scared folks with TTSD. Just want a safe warm comfortable moth-eaten old sweater. Worn out Joe. Good luck with that.

Clown Car

It’s officially a Clown Car now. Mayor DeBlasio is #23 in the Democrat primary race. He joins the latest Montana guy Bullock? Bollocks? It’s just silly. And. If Sleepy Creepy Joe stays at the top of the heap of jesters. Advantage Trump.

Meanwhile. Tiger’s under the big top at Bethpage Black at +2 thru 3. Since nobody would drive me out there, have to watch it online. Boo! At least the sun is out for a change.

Big Bang. Last episode. Unless Bolton gets us into a war with Iran.

Qué Será Será

Mom’s favorite song. Dad’s favorite actress. Bye Doris Day.

Over at the Red Keep things got pretty hot. Cersei & Jaime together forever. The witch was right. Only 3 children. And. My sources tell me that the pale horse Arya rode off on is Death. Theories blown.

Sansa did marry a Jonas brother. So. She & Tyrion will likely rule. After the women fight it out. Dany v. Sansa v. Greyjoy Sister. Last Game of Thrones next Sunday. Gonna miss it. Whatever will be. Will be.

Will not miss VEEP. Bye Felicia.

Mamas & Dragons

Blustery day for moms. Glad we celebrated on a gorgeous uncrowded Saturday. Any time with mAdBen is a perfect day.

Amy Poehler’s Wine Country movie. Ten minutes in. Unwatchable. Emma Thompson on SNL. Watchable. Keenan Thompson. Neither.

Memo to Kamala and other candidates. Ban these phrases:
We are better than this
This is not who we are

GOT theory expressed by our waiter. The dragons’ real mama is still out there. And. Tyrion is a Targaryen. That could be interesting.

Me Worry?

Trump’s nicknames do resonate. Sleepy Creepy Joe. Crazy Bernie.

But. When Trump dubbed Buttigieg Alfred E. Neuman, Mayor Pete had to Google it. For us oldsters, Mad Magazine, and its mascot are easy to conjure. That familiar face of our generation was derived from several drawings including a c. 1940’s postcard.

Have to admit. Trump nailed it with this one.
