President wanted: No prior experience necessary.

Posted by keithosaunders on May 21, 2017

When I was a kid and encountered an alpha-dog, as an introvert I suffered largely in silence.  I took comfort in the rationalization was that after high school these dullards would end up in dead-end jobs and would almost certainly become alcoholics, wife-beaters,  or felons.

And there you have the most irritating part of the Trump phenomenon.  This brainless oaf who never got his come-comeuppance, and was in fact rewarded for his loutish ways. Personally I yearn to see Trump having to resign in disgrace, even though I realize this means that Mike Pence, someone whose politics are just as bad, if not worse than Trump’s, will ascend to the presidency.

The 2016 election actually confirmed one of the tenets of the American dream –  anyone can become president.  Allow me to rephrase that:  Anyone with money can become president.

As we now know, there are no necessary qualifications for the job of United States president.  You don’t have to have been a politician, a lawyer, a military officer.  There is no need to possess a thorough knowledge of history, science, civics, or economics.  I could be president, even though my greatest life-skill is knowing what to play over a C7+9+5 chord.

If only I had enough money…

Leave the Maggots alone, only Congress can save us now.

Posted by keithosaunders on May 16, 2017

Yesterday the Washington Post broke the story that Donald Trump may have inadvertently leaked classified information to the Russians.  This prompted immediate calls from my left wing brethren for impeachment.

Many people are still upset at the heartland folks who comprise Trump’s base, but I believe that they are now irrelevant.  The MAGA (Make America Great Again) folks are no longer the problem.  Sure, they did their part to get Fucko elected, but they no longer have any power.  Indeed with the absence of affordable health care and job opportunities, they are screwed under the Trump administration’s legislation.

It’s now up to the Republican Congressmen to impeach Trump. They are the only ones that can fix this mess.  Not the press, not protesters, and not the Democratic minority.  I don’t hold out much hope.

Trumped

Image result for Trump

It must be pretty amazing to be Donald Trump right about now.  It’s not enough that he has more money than God, he had to become a reality-TV presidential candidate too?  On paper this shouldn’t be happening.  He’s not particularly intelligent and he’s certainly not well spoken — he sounds like a thug from Queens – and he’s not even that attractive.  Yet here he is on the eve of the primaries leading the Republican field.

Once the primaries kick into full swing in a couple of weeks Trump may be singing a different tune, but for now whatever he does or says pays off in spades.  Build a wall to keep Mexican immigrants out of the USA?  Why not?! Refer to Megyn Kelly as a slut?  Whoops, there go the poll numbers…through the roof!  Skip a debate days before the Iowa Caucus?  Shrewd move.

Everything Trump touches turns to gold.  He’s like that guy in the twilight zone in the Vegas casino who wins no matter what number he plays.  I, for one, am looking forward to an entertaining primary season.   Go American people!

Trump mania

Trump

If Donald Trump is elected our next president it’s safe to assume that at least for a while he will enjoy the popularity and clout that goes along with the office.  It would follow that his look and mannerisms would also become popular and somewhat trendy.  Can you imagine an entire country of people with the Trump haircut?

In addition Trump’s brash persona would give you the cover to say whatever you wanted whenever you wanted.  If someone called you on crass behavior you would merely respond, “Hey, I’m a straight shooter, just like our president!”

For example here’s an imaginary exchange that could conceivably take place just 20 months from now:

Keitho: Say, Mary, are you pregnant or what?

Mary: Excuse me?

Keitho:  You look great!  When are you expecting?

Mary:  I’m not pregnant, you imbecile.

Keitho:  Hey, I’m a straight shooter, just like our president!

Mary:  Get the hell out of here, I never want to see you again.

Keitho:  I never figured you for a socialist.

Now I ask you, can you envision having this much fun in a Clinton administration?  (Don’t answer that!)
