Wally World

Petulant Adolescent Incoherent President rambled about everything and The Wall. Barbed Wire. Another brick. In The Wall. What? Yup. Tijuana. Marijuana. Military. National Emergency. For The Wall. What?

Meanwhile. Former FBI guy admits that an administrative coup was in the works. 25th Amendment. Today it seems relevant. Oy vey.

Nancy Pelosi is looking like the only adult in the room. Underestimated her. She is strategic and strong. Hope she prevails.

SOTU Preview

Trump will walk in and hope people shake his hand. He’ll smile like he’s a rock star anyway. He’ll have victims of crimes by illegal immigrants sitting with Melania who will wear something gorgeously controversial.

Pelosi will make faces like she’s sucking lemons. Pence will look at the President the way Nancy Reagan looked at Ronnie.  Some Dems will stage a scene. Trump will say something predictably petulantly adolescently unprecedential. Take a chug every time he snorts or says border security or work together or best ever.

And They’re Off

Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Tulsi Gabbard. Julián Castro today from San Antonio. Probably Bernie and Joe. Cory and Amy. The 2020 campaign has begun. Something to talk about. Besides. Him.

Playoff Cowboys v. Rams will decide if my All Los Angeles Super Bowl prediction holds. Of course, it seems highly unlikely that Chargers can hold off the Pats at home anyway. So.

Chancy Choice

Chuck & Nancy. Chancy chose to use their equal time to sternly diss the Prez rather than take the lead. They could have made a sweeping case for stopping the border problem at its source. In Central America. And addressed the macro changes necessary to solve the migration problems at the pass. Instead they are doing the typical Dem thing. Anti-Trump. And. Nothing else.

Although Kamala Harris on her book tour is sounding rather rational. When asked how to pronounce her name, she says it’s comma with a la at the end. When asked about her gender and race, she eschews the identity politics trap. As an Indian-Jamaican-American first woman Attorney General in California. That’s refreshing. Is she running?

2018 Wish List Missed

My 2018 Wish List. Predilections. Didn’t get a lot.

Luann de Lesseps & Harvey Weinstein hookup in rehab. Not that I know.
Melania on Dancing With the Stars. Nope.
Jon Stewart replaces Colbert. Too bad not.
Sam will reunite with real Jason. Almost.
Tim Ryan not Paul Ryan will replace Pelosi as Speaker. Kinda sorta but not.
Tiger wins another major. He did not.
Patriots will not win the Super Bowl. Ding. Ding. Ding.
Tops will no longer have shoulder holes. Unfortunately they still do.
Pets will develop allergies to humans. No. But they were attacked by raccoons in Central Park.
Alexa will do the dishes. No. And we had to put her in the cabinet. She was spying on us.
