Maundy Barr

And so it begins. Mueller Time. Republicans will look to AG Barr’s washing away any evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors as redemption. Democrats will see Barr’s news conference as a whitewash of obstruction charges. As always, each side will take away the words which corroborate its own Trump narrative.

Journalism’s low bar for objectivity no more glaring than anchors’ hair on fire even before the report is released.

Nancy Pelosi will ultimately play Pontius Pilate.

In better news. Mayor Pete can speak beautiful French. Just to brighten his halo before an NYC fundraiser. And. Capitalism again rules. $800 million already raised to rebuild Notre Dame.

Mayors Mike & Pete

My go-to guy for President, Mike Bloomberg, may still run. As a Democrat. Maybe he can run with Mayor Pete. East Coast short guy. Mid-west short guy. Great ticket! Smartest duo on the planet. Sign me up.

What a debate stage it’ll be. Joe smelling Kamala’s hair. Beto standing on the podium waving his arms. Amy eating salad with her comb. Granny Warren hawking her Native American cookbook. Bernie yelling “billionaires!” Mayors Mike & Pete answering policy questions. And a bunch of others milling around trying to look relevant. Can’t wait!

Trump Abruptly Resigns!

TTSD is over! No more Trump! Sorry. April Fool’s.

What is true is that Mayor Pete raised over $7m in the first quarter. You’re welcome. And. Michigan State really did beat Duke. I Am Not Charlotte Simmons. And. Texas Tech also made it to the Final Four. And. It’s a bright sunny Spring day. So Yay.

Elite & Pete

Mayor Pete on with Bill Maher who threw some blocks. Booda parried pretty well, but it was the first time he was tested. Lazy pundits giggle as they say it’s too hard to pronounce his name. Isn’t that their job? Anyway. He will have to figure out a nickname of sorts it seems.

Hey Joe. Biden. Just say no!

Meanwhile. The Elite Eight. Great games with the exception of North Carolina. They were sloppy, frenzied and poorly coached. Joey3 has 3. Me 2. mAdBen 1. Go Texas Tech & Michigan State!

Pete Poll

President Pete Buttigieg? You heard it here on March 11. Since then many family members have declared their agreement. And today a unanimous endorsement by our New York City Book Club. Anecdotal evidence that of all the candidates his star is rising. The more we see and hear the South Bend Indiana Mayor, the more we like.

And. It seems that he is now the most trending and googled of all the Dems nationally. Even the eclectic and opinionated ladies of The View expressed their love from Ana Navarro & Meghan McCain to Joy & Whoopi.   Go Booda – Judge!

Weekend Traffic

So it begins. Spring road closures. Gates and tents all over Central Park. St. Patrick’s Day Parade today on Fifth. Half marathon on Sunday.

As usual, lots of talking going on while actual golf is being played somewhere in the background at The Players in Florida. Can Tiger stay on the Island?  Brexit brothers Rory and Tommy lead the pack.

And. Trump will run over Beto the Manic Bozo as easily as Johnny & Moira Rose ran over that cat on Schitt’s Creek.

O’Beto

And now. Just in time for St. Patty’s Day. Enter Robert Francis (Beto) O’Rourke. Complete with daddy Patrick Francis issues. A mixed bag background. Lots of oversharing and youthful hijinks. Never quite made a go of small business ventures, yet his mother did. He inherited some wealth from her. Also. Daddy-in-law issues.

Vanity Fair article worth the read.

Born to run? Shades of Obama. Generational newcomer could break through. The darling of the donor class who rail against Trump’s dishonesty yet cheat to get their kids into good schools. So. We’ll see.
