What a choice which ever way the Americans vote they are in deep sh*t and doubtlessly so are we. It's a rerun of the end of the Roman empire.

It's a choice I'm glad I don't have to make.

Still, they'll pull through. They are, after all, Americans.

The Kraut is one of the invade-the-world, invite-the-world, in-hock-to-the-world neocons who have made the Middle East the delightful place it is today. Hillary is Continuity George Bush, who he loved.

He was never going to do anything else but go Hillary - along with the entire National Review crew. Basically everyone who thinks Iraq was a good idea, that Libya was a good idea, and that funding the Syrian headchoppers is a good idea.

PS - did you know that the motto of Liverpool John Lennon Airport is "Above us only sky" - seriously?

Except for their baggage handlers, who have the motto "Imagine no possessions".

Duffers - lucky for all of us then that you don't have a vote.

Having said that, whichever way it goes, may god have mercy on our souls.

What a devil's choice we have. Democrats resented losing the Cold War more than I thought so they finally got their revenge with Obama and with Hillary as his third term..they hope.

To defend America from these Soviet era hold overs, we have managed to saddle ourselves with a thin skinned, undisciplined ego with a big mouth. It is a contest between her crimes and his mouth. The media is writing only about the latter, naturally.

From Instapundit last night:
THE BIG DIFF BETWEEN HILLARY AND TRUMP: Her crimes damage US national security. Yes, Loose Lips Sink Ships. The Donald mouths off. Experts like Don Surber think Trump’ll learn. He’s a rookie candidate, Surber told me. Trump adapts. The Clinton Foundation? It sells off. It has sold off and sold out. And selling out America is dyed in its crooked wool."

If the SCOTUS ever becomes too much of an obstacle, then we take a page from the Dems---How many divisions does Chief Justice Roberts have?

I noticed that someone had been raking through my old posts and guessed it was you, JK, but I am mystified at your choice. What bearing does that example of sublime prose - who giggled? - on my post above?

"[T]he clown-like figure that appeared so regularly [IS] simply a marketing device," and that's exactly the point, old boy. Over time I've detested both parties about equally and suspect their fundamental structures are malignant. At this point, however, we have only one with any interest in actually running the country.

At the risk of being repetitive, the Republicans don't represent a philosophy or workable legislative program. They are only an advertising firm that spews whatever dubious pitch will win votes: "We can lower taxes and the deficit at the same time and still supply social services people demand; we can put God back in the public square; we can revive the post-war boom by giving everything to the rich and powerful; we can make the US population Northern European again" and so on.

Trump is a cunning salesman with TV experience. That was all it took to conquer the Republican reality bubble made up of outlets like Fox News, Talk Radio, NRO, and others that would be the envy of Joseph Goebbels.

If you're interested in the results of actually applying the Republicans' shamelessly fantastical advertisements, read about what's happening in our state of Kansas.

Well, if you (Americans) aren't happy with either of the two citizens left to fight the race, why don't you sack both of them and start all over again?
JK and the Big Henry can take over the day to day running of the US of A until everybody agrees on a nice Democrat and Republican and a new ballot can take place.
Otherwise, just hire somebody from a temp. office worker place.
How hard can it be?

Bob, you touch upon a point that has been worming its way into my mind recently because 'over here' we have a Labour party run by ultra-Leftist clowns and 'over there' you have the Republicans run by Big Business clowns of whom Trump is merely the latest. When I have sorted out my thoughts I will post them.

Andra, I would (almost but not quite) pay good money to see a US government run by JK and Henry.

"What bearing does that example of sublime prose" Sorry that was a harummph rather than a giggle.

In 1978, Krauthammer moved to Washington, DC, to direct planning in psychiatric research under the Carter administration.[1] He contributed to the creation of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, currently referred to as the DSM-III. In 1984 he was board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.[13] (Wikipedia)

For bearing refer to above link. I'm off to the lake until at least The Monday Funnies. Maybe longer.

And I'm still gonna cast a vote for Trump! Screw Hillar ... uhm, f ... not not that either. To hell with Hillary.

Ah, well done, JK, now I see the point and I hereby stamp your leave pass, er, don't forget to pass on my tropical breathings to 'Honey Pie'!

Andra, you have alarming common sense!

JK, catch some bass!!

Not too sure, Whiters, just how many fish JK will catch with his 'Honey Pie' by his side. As you know well, women and fishing do not always go well together!

My very dear Andra and equally dear David,

When American Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman was being considered as a possible Republican candidate for the presidential election of 1884, he famously declined, saying, "I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected." I, of course, am not General Sherman.

If nominated, I will definitely accept and choose JK as my running mate. I will also urge Robert Whitewall to become my Secretary of State, thereby succeeding to the Presidency if our Leftist enemies have me, JK, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate (yes, there is such an office; (s)he serves as the Presiding Officer of the Senate in the Absence of the Vice President of the United States) assassinated. And if elected, I will, of course, serve. With a vengeance. And you think Hillary is a fury from hell?

Henry, I appreciate your confidence in my diplomatic skills as they have become rusty over the decades.


I have been told that it's like riding a bike (a 2-wheeler without training wheels attached). In any case, I am quite confident that whatever you do in office will always make sense.

Big Henry,
If you bring in Damedom for Aussie sheilas then I really think you're onto something.
Ya got my vote anyway.


It's amazing that you should mention Damedom for Aussie sheilas because I've been thinking about my campaign this afternoon, and that is the first item I have on my "Promise them anything" list!

David, "As you know well, women and fishing do not always go well together!" JK can always teach her how to fish. I tried with my wife but she seemed to stay fixated on just how far away "porcelain facilities" were. This really tried my patience.

I can understand that, Whiters, given that there was, presumably, a running river or a lake in front of her!

JK: Thanks for the hookers for Hillary link. You've helped a cynical old man realize there's still honesty and beauty in the world.

Andra: A good, albeit legally sticky, idea. JK and Big Henry aren't likely to be turned into Russian "intelligence" assets:
