Amy Emerges

New Hampshire primary stunner. Klobuchar took out Senate sister Warren in her own backyard. Amy came out of nowhere. Debate performance boost. Where does she go from here? In the South?

Pete & Bernie stay the course from Iowa and remain top two. Ornery Joe out. Bloomberg still spending in swing states and Trump amassing crowds. MSNBC is talking about William Barr and Roger Stone. What?!

Bloomberg Rising

Bloomberg has his own money. He will be beholden to no special interest groups. Nor lobbyists. So. What’s the problem, Bernie?

Onward to South Carolina. Insulting voters of color by lumping them into one basket not good, Joe. Maybe they are individuals with minds of their own. And. It seems some like Mike. More every day.

Now third in the national polls. A successful real billionaire businessman and great mayor of NYC.  Who better to manage the country?

Meanwhile. Betcha Amy will win Dixville Notch.

O! The Inanity

Oh. The Oscars. Inane Red Carpet Questions. It’d be great if interviewers actually knew the people and their movie. Basic homework. Ryan does his. Even if his dinner jacket is ill-fitted. Seems to be black & white fashion night. All the stars look AMAZING! Thesaurus anyone?

Haven’t seen the films, with a couple of exceptions. They weren’t so hot. So. It’s off to Homeland. Later return to the inanity on fast-forward.

No Break Outs

Friday Night Lights. Democrat Debate. No Break Outs. No Break Downs. If there was a winner, it was Amy Klobuchar.

Joe took to yelling as a substitute for articulation or passion. Mayor Pete loses on the race trope. Lizzie Warren has an annoying voice. That’s just the truth. Bernie was strong with the exception of his guns argument. Steyer made the best points about defeating Trump.

Mike Bloomberg looks better every day. Pragmatic. Centrist. Strong.

Unforced Errors

No. Not tennis. Australian Open is over. However. Democrats are making so many unforced errors it is hard to keep track.

Iowa couldn’t conduct a caucus. If somebody got in a car and counted the bingo cards in every church in the state, it wouldn’t take this long. Confidence in elections and government-run things takes a huge hit.

To make matters worse, DNC’s dunce chair Tom Perez asks for a recanvass. Great. Prolong the agony of a horrible story. Biden then can call the whole thing a farce. And sorry again, Bernie. You lose even though you won. Pete and Mike used the fiasco to their own ends.

Hillary tells Ellen she would never say never to VP and seems never to leave the limelight. And. Back to Joe. He spent the better part of an hour on CNN talking about stuttering and cancer. Don’t forget Lizzie. Her Nevada staff is calling foul over her toxic workplace.

Would seem so easy to beat Trump. But. Nope. Can’t make it up.

Bye Bye Biden

Imagine folksy old Joe delivering a stem-winder speech like Trump did at the State of the Union last night. Criminal Justice. Jobs. It was an over the top Oprah-esque reality TV show. You get a scholarship. You get medals. You get a reunion with your military dad.

Pelosi didn’t help matters. She seemed even more petty than our Petulant Adolescent President. Tearing up his speech and such. Plus. The Iowa fiasco showed Biden’s electability to be a myth. So. Bye bye Joe.

Who won the Iowa fiasco?   NYTimes Pick.

SOTU Tippling

There’s a State of the Union speech tonight? Wedged in between Iowa chaos and Impeachment vote. Okay. So. Take a sip every time:

Nancy looks like she’s sucking on a lemon
Trump says he is great and best ever
Democrats sit on their hands & boo
Republicans stand & clap
Pence stares adoringly at Trump and nods
Adam Schiff scowls and eyes bug out

Another night. Another show. Have fun!
