The subject of my post is, admittedly, wishful thinking, but anytime I have the opportunity to quote the great Knick, Michael J. Richardson, I jump at the chance.
Less than a month into the Trump administration it is in a disarray of epic proportions. Just perhaps, and I’m going out on a limb here, it might have been best to hire people who had some actual experience working in government. At any rate, this miserable group of generals and billionaires are by any measure rotten to the core and we, the people, are going to have to batten down the hatches to make it through the next four years. Is there a class I can take in battening?
With Michael Flynn’s resignation the first domino fell. He was on the phone with Russia more often than I call my bookie, but I’ve said too much! There isn’t a chance in hell that he acted on his own but the question is will a public grown accustomed to suckling on the teat of 140 character tweets have the attention span for a Watergate-esque scandal.
Just to be on the safe side I’m brushing up on my Prokofiev sonatas.

The Republican convention, which will conclude tonight with a speech by the potential OOTUS (Orangutan of the United States) has not disappointed. Outside Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena you have cops and media outnumbering protesters by an impressive margin, but inside the Arena is where the real crazy people are.
On Monday night Melania Trump gave a speech and we awoke Tuesday morning to the news that large chunks of it had been plagiarized from Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech. The media erupted in a swarm of indignation and outrage, but can I say something? Who cares! So she pilfered a few lines from the first lady. Here’s a news flash: It’s not a rare thing for potential first ladies to speak about family values or their husbands leadership ability.
What irks me the most about this [non] scandal is you can just picture some smarmy millennial on his iphone googling away until he uncovered the ‘scandal of the century.’ I guaranteed you this kind of thing has happened before but nobody cared.
Now we all owe a debt of gratitude to Lyin’ Ted Cruz for making our Wednesday night entertainment-packed. Cruz’s speech, in which he failed to endorse Donald Trump, while delivering the opening salvo of his 2020 campaign, was like the high school kid getting his revenge on the school bully. My hat is off to him. He provided the image of the convention: The Trump family standing in shocked disbelief, frowning and scowling.
I can’t wait for tonight.
