SHORT RIBS AND RANDOM THOUGHTS, October 20, 2019

For those of you who have been wondering “Whatever Happened to Rudy Giuliani”, there’s no mystery. He’s 73 and has been a heavy drinker for the last 50 years. This is what happens. Sad!

And I just came up with another great Hallowe’en costume idea:   LEV and IGOR,  Giuliani’s Russian pals. 

Meanwhile this headline over at WaPo flies in the face of years of right-wing media hysteria: “State Department probe of Clinton emails finds no deliberate mishandling of classified information.”

That is according to a “report submitted to Congress this month,” Greg Miller reported. “The report appears to represent a final and anticlimactic chapter in a controversy that overshadowed the 2016 presidential campaign and exposed Clinton to fierce criticism that she later cited as a major factor in her loss to President Trump…”

THE DEMS’S DEBATE:  Things are starting to shape up.  Here are my impressions:

JOE BIDEN : didn’t seem any the worse for the barrage of criticism, warranted and otherwise,  re: his remaining son.  Still the front-runner.

ELIZABETH WARREN-  gave a strong performance.  Don’t count her out. 

BERNIE SANDERS- is having  his ‘Bernie’s Back” rally as I write this. Everybody loves Bernie.  I hope he makes it. 

MAYOR PETE- continues to impress. He would end up as someone’s running mate except that if the candidate is male, there will be enormous pressure to pick a female for Veep. 

KAMALA HARRIS;  may have peaked too soon.  Also for Veep? 

TULSI GABBARD- an idiot who’ll be dropping out soon. 

AMY KLOBUCHAR- I would be pleased to  vote for her if I ever have a chance. 

TOM STEYER-  Wish he’d started running sooner.

JULIAN CASTRO-  monster resume, former Cabinet officer, he’s got it all, can’t seem to get traction.  I’d vote for him. 

THERE are three more that I can’t recall at the moment.  I guess that says it all.

WHERE ARE THE KURDS?????  Being slaughtered by the Turkish buddies of President Bone Spurs. All we get to see of it is Richard Engel describing it  because they have NO ONE who is media -savvy and speaks English.  Terrible!

HAVE YOU HEARD “CRIME AFTER CRIME”?  This parody of Cindy Laupers’  “Time After Time” addressing the Trump situation is hilarious.  I’d provide a link but I  don’t know how.  It’s by Jen Houston and it’s on You Tube. It was sent to us by someone in CHINA, yes CHINA.  They love Cindy over there,  too.
