Area 51 Where Are You?

Let’s all head to AlienStock and the Desert of the Great American Southwest. Area 51. West of the Rockies. You are on the air. Yes. Of course Art Bell will be there. And Whitley Strieber. As will Lizard Men. And Greys. Probing bodies. Mining minds. Extraterrestrially speaking. So. Hop on that Trailways bus. Close encounters guaranteed.

Beats bleary-eyed visions of Trump 24/7 on TV.

Do the Hustle

Overt street strumpets. Anything for a donation or a vote.

Elizabeth Warren ingratiates herself to faux ancestors. American Indians. In Iowa. Bernie Sanders courts criminals in and out of prison. He’s desperate. Kirsten Gillibrand now ready to give #metoo villains Franken et al a second chance. Ditto. Julián Castro brazenly goes after dog lovers’ dollars calling for shelters to collar euthanizing. Where will all those pups go? Oh yeah. Airplanes. Hotels. Restaurants. Right.

Pete Buttigieg trots out his husband Chasten on Fire Island and in Provincetown. LGBQRST coin. Kamala Harris professes to be a capitalist while sipping rosé with CEO’s in the Hamptons. Cory Booker is indiscriminate. Kinda like Trump who pretends to pray with Evangelicals. And of course Joe. Barack’s best friend. Sad.

Bas-Relief

Major sigh as Trump squints at McCain-esque Hawks Graham, Bolton, Pompeo and Pence. Bomb. Bomb Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Iran. He said no! Because people may die? Don’t remember hearing that before. So. Okay. Yes. Many faces of the President. But for now. We’ll take it.

Crying Wolfowitz and the Cheneys twisting on the wall.

Debate or Scrum

Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado; former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.; Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey; Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind.; former housing secretary Julián Castro; Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York; former Representative John Delaney of Maryland; Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; Senator Kamala Harris of California; former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado; Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington; Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas; Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio; Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont; Representative Eric Swalwell of California; Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; the self-help author Marianne Williamson; and the former tech executive Andrew Yang.

Second night June 27 looks best.

Snow Queens

Trump & The Queen. He looks bored. Ivanka and Camilla seem to have chosen the same white ensemble. Awkward. Melania in white as well. It’s like a snow storm inside Buckingham Palace. Harry is there. To defend his wife’s honor? No. Don’t insult her as a victim. Charles Blow.

Meanwhile, Kirsten Gillibrand said her favorite part of campaigning is seeing lots of little girls on the trail because “Female is the Future”.
She happens to have two young sons back at home. Sad.

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.

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.
