Donald Trump urging the Russians to try to find Hillary’s missing thirty-thousand emails. It was funny, it got Hillary’s emails into the news again, and the Russians didn’t need Trump to suggest it.
The Democrats blaming the Russians for the DNC email leaks. If the Russians were responsible, that was wrong. Foreign nationals and foreign governments are not supposed to try to influence US elections. But, blaming the Russians was an attempt to change the focus of the story. Nobody denied the facts revealed in the DNC email leaks. Bernie always wants to be left, but he was right that the DNC was against him.
Bill and Hillary Clinton each get paid a lot of money to make speeches. Still, I bet they did their speeches this week in Philadelphia for free.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to have been fired from her job as Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee. So, she resigned, effective at the end of this week. When I was in radio, we used to call that leaving by mutual consent: the boss said, “you’re fired,” and you said, “If that’s the way you feel about it, I don’t want to work here anymore.”
It’s fun to see that both the Republicans and the Democrats have party unity issues.
Protestors at the Democratic convention seem to me to be louder than the ones at the Republican convention. What do you think?
In order to appeal to younger voters, my daughter suggests the Republicans call their 2020 convention “Republicon.” She’s trying to tack con onto the word Democrat too, but hasn’t come up with a euphonic way to achieve that. Democon would work, but it could also mean a convention of pollsters.
With the recent departure of Roger Ailes from Fox News, and reports that he’s being paid some $40 million to depart, I’m reminded once again that the highest paid job in network TV appears to be leaving your job.
I can tell you from first-hand experience that leaving your job in local radio is more likely to cost you money than to make you any.
Sprinkles (or if you prefer, Jimmies) come in different colors, but they’re all the same flavor.
If you’re going to pull off to the side of the road, pull off to the side of the road. Don’t park with the rear end of your car stuck so far out into traffic that you choke two lanes of traffic down to one.
It’s one thing to run a red light. It’s quite another thing to get angry at me and the other driver who just managed to avoid hitting you when you ran the red light.
If a road crew fills a pothole, it would be good if someone, maybe a supervisor, came by later to see if the thing sank and needs to be filled some more.
If they don’t repave Main Street in Hempstead NY, south of Front Street pretty soon, I’m going to stop driving on it until someone else agrees to pay for the damage to the suspension on my car.
The spell checker I use now says ginormous is a real word. Egantic, though, still isn’t.
