Run Mike Bloomberg!

Voted for Mike Bloomberg in 2016. Wrote him in. Now he’s filed for Alabama Presidential Primary. Biden weak. Warren can’t win.

Bloomberg’s a guy who actually runs stuff well and gets things done. Public sector. Private Sector. Can spend his own bucks. No need for fundraisers. Beholden to neither K Street nor Wall Street. But. Would middle America vote for a short billionaire Jew from New York?!  They should. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Run. Mike. Run.

President Mike

Shaky Ground

30 years ago today. The earth shook. In San Francisco. 4-month old baby. New nanny. 27th Floor swayed. Aftershocks still resonate.

Now shifting political plates. Prez & Congress seismic clashing daily. Even Republicans quaking about Syria. Lackluster Democrat candidates. Need new people to stablize the temblors.

Romney? Kasich? Haley? v. Bloomberg? Oprah?

Autumn Crisp

Farm fresh tart apples from Upstate. In a flaky crust. Clean crisp air. Parades on Fifth Avenue. Yep. It’s Fall in the City.

Won’t spoil anything about Season Finale of Succession. Except to say it was perfect. The Politician on Netflix a quirky Falchuk-Paltrow vanity piece. Yet. Worth it for Ben Platt’s version of Joni Mitchell’s River.

Ann Patchett’s new novel The Dutch House a pretty good read. Her narrator Danny a bit flat. Guessing Margaret Atwood’s sequel will win the Man Booker prize. Find out at 4:30.   Half right.

In other rumors. If Biden out. Bloomberg in.

Side Trek Sass

Still Like Mike. For Prez.

The Family on Netflix. Chilling documentary. Church & State.

Succession returns to HBO. Best series on that TV thing.

The Rahm & Chris Show. Emanuel & Christie should do a cable news politics gig of their own. They are funny, savvy and cheeky together.

Bry v. Bro. PGA champion Brooks Koepka has been outspoken about golf’s pace-of-play. While enduring the annoyingly slow Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks complained. Words exchanged. Money’s on Bro. My new hero.

Slow golf quiz for duffers from Williston, Vermont is EXCELLENT.

Ogilvy’s Head of Global Partnerships is Linked In.

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!

Les Bon Temps

Laissez les bon temps roulez! Hillary isn’t running. Yay. Nor Mike Bloomberg. Boo. Maybe Biden. Won’t matter. Left has taken over the Party. And. Nadler overreach to impeach could still play into the witch hunt narrative to derail the Dems.

Since Tiger’s out for Arnie’s tourney. Go for a POP of quirky fun. Besides the delightful Schitt’s Creek. Check out Flack. Anna Paquin plays an off-kilter mix of Liev’s Ray Donovan and Dockery in Good Behavior.

Next Stop 2020

Already voted for Mike Bloomberg for President. Wrote his name in. 2016. He’s making noise about running in 2020. Too little too late? Think so. Frank Bruni’s column in Sunday NYTimes outlined traits a Democrat candidate would have to possess to beat Trump. Larger than life celebrity, toughness, centrist, unifier, connects with white middle America as well as people of color, deep personal pockets. The only person to fit that bill? Oprah.
