TWO MORE DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

Washington Governor Jay Inslee has declared his intention to become the Democrats’ 2020 presidential nominee. This should be thrilling news to, oh, dozens of people somewhere.

CUOMO’S QUIXOTIC QUEST & OCASIO-CORTEZ’S CONQUEST

Andrew Cuomo may be as comfortable lurching left as his fellow New Yorker, Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  But he’s not comfortable enough to celebrate the loss of 25,000 or more jobs. Too bad Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and her likeminded business-busters seem to have moved Jeff Bezos beyond Mr. Cuomo’s capability to persuade him to reconsider. Excerpted from J. David Goodman’s article...

THE BRYCE HARPER SIGNING

Apropos of nothing political… Despite the major competition from other idiotic signings, the Philadelphia Phillies signing of Bryce Harper to a 13 year, $330 million dollar contract, has an excellent chance to go down in history as the most idiotic of them all. His career offensive stats are excellent – but not earth-shattering by any stretch.  Defensively he ranges from, at best...

LYNN PATTON’S RESPONSE

Lynne Patton, who has been a valued member of the Trump team for a decade and has great loyalty to/respect for them. The problem?  Ms. Patton is a Black female.  And Democrats, along with their media sycophants, keep telling us that Mr. Trump wants nothing to do with either demographic.
