It is hard to believe that it has been 13 years since Laura Ingrahamm penned her best seller, “Shut Up & Sing” after the Dixie Chick flap. That was what came immediately to mind when the following “Letter to Hollywood” popped into my inbox this morning:
It’s time to wake up now. Get this! The only reason you exist is for my entertainment.
Some of you are beautiful. Some of you can deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of you are so convincing that you scare the crap out of me. And others are so funny you can make me laugh uncontrollably.
But you all have one thing in common. You only exist and have a place in my world to entertain me. That’s it. Nothing else!
You make your living pretending to be someone else. You play dress-up like a 5-year-old. Your world is a make believe world. It is not real. It doesn’t exist. You live for the camera while the rest of us live in the real world. Your entire existence depends on my patronage. I crank the organ and you dance. Therefore, I don’t care where you stand on issues.
The organ grinder metaphor was priceless! 😉 Read the rest of this entry »
Megyn Kelly moving from Fox News to NBC would seem like nothing more than a greedy talking head seeking more money until you look at the almost magical mathematics behind the move. Just imagine — moving a single person from one organization to another actually doubled the average IQ of BOTH organizations at the same time. No mean feat that!

It is an absolute riot; but it is also spot on, devastating, thought-provoking, and rather persuasive. Especially for those uninterested in starting WWIII, and filling memorial graveyards with female draftees. Read the rest of this entry »
As usual, Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams’ blog this morning was persuasive: “Lie Detection and Scandals”
When Clinton’s surrogates respond to questions about Wikileaks by saying the Russians are behind it, that’s an acknowledgment of guilt. Guilty people almost always question the source of the information first. Innocent people start with a clear denial, or sometimes confusion as to why the question is being asked.
He then makes a persuasive case for how and why Clinton’s apologists believe the Wikileaks are true. Later, he also suggests that they aren’t making much difference:
The Wikileaks emails are not having a huge impact because movies and books have taught us that even our most-respected politicians do favor-trading to get things done. And the emails that DO NOT come from Clinton are little more than underlings chattering. So far, Wikileaks is a big nothing.
I tend to agree with his analysis here; but the far more interesting critique comes when it is Trump’s turn: Read the rest of this entry »
Or, was it lying while cheating? It seems that the NYPD caught her wearing what they think is a stealth miniature communication device, during the so-called CinC debate last night.
Of course, it might have just been another undisclosed medical infirmity, which requires her to wear a hearing aid. Granny is obviously rapidly decomposing before our eyes.

Who knew phone booths still existed in Australia?
Looks like the whole town is antique. Notice the skeleton guarding the
junk antiques in front of the store. The young guy must be a tourist. Apparently the town council is displeased with the mural of the antique politician. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the short and informative podcasts I regularly listen to while exercising, is the Weekly Standard. It interviews many of the writers for the magazine, on current political events. I have been frequently amused, by how spectacularly wrong their chief prognosticator Bill Kristol has consistently been over the past year, regarding Trump’s chances of continued success. One of his regular laments, has his been dismay over Trump’s Troubling Twitter Tweets. 🙂
Scott Adams, on the other hand, has spent much of the year analyzing Trump’s persuasion techniques, explaining technically why he is winning, and predicting that he will continue to do so.
One can’t make this stuff up: “Why Obama’s half-brother says he’ll be voting for Donald Trump”
President Obama’s Kenyan half-brother wants to make America great again — so he’s voting for Donald Trump.
“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told The Post from his home in the rural village of Kogelo. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”
Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”
How can this be? Read the rest of this entry »
