Succession

Logan Roy pits his kids against each other in a fratricidal competition, akin to Soapatriarch Victor Newman. In that other reality show, Trump sets up his spawn to vie for the family business with a nod to have the next G-7 at their Doral Resort in that swing state of Florida.

Over in Democrat land. Elizabeth Warren is drawing huge crowds. It could be a bloody fight with Sleepy Joe for the nomination. Uglier than a Kendall-Roman wrestling match where each ends up Shivved.

A rough & tumble Fall. For some of us. That’ll be fun.

Making Assumptions

The candidate casino. $100 in chips today. How’d you bet? $35 Warren. $15 Biden. $10 Harris. $5 Booker. $5 Buttigieg. $5 Woo-Woo Williamson. $25 Somebody Who Can Win.

Scaramouche has had a come-to-Jeezus epiphany about our Petulant Adolescent President. Why? He’s looking to make a buck by convincing Nikki Haley or Mark Sanford to make a primary run at Trump.

FedEx Cup. That end of season golf thing. After an even more convoluted fan-phobic structure this year. Who will win? Who cares?

Mary’s teleportation to Heaven from Earth. No surprise there. She was still a virgin when she gave birth.

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?
