Wasting Time on Trump

***Great piece by David French over at National Review Online: Enough With the Trump Outrage.

Does anyone seriously think that Erick Erickson — a blunt-speaking radio host and pundit last seen urging his supporters to mail fake testicles to John Boehner and fake dog poop to Democrat Earl Pomeroy, and saying all manner of vile things about political opponents (he’s apologized for some of his worst statements, including calling Supreme Court Justice David Souter a “goat-f**king child molester.”) — is offended by Trump’s statements? Does anyone seriously think that Megyn Kelly, one of television’s most talented and powerful personalities and one of the most feared and respected interviewers in the news business, has been emotionally wounded by Trump?

Exactly. This is the type of thing that takes attention away from the disastrous Iran deal that Congress is days away from voting on. That is just a tad more important than a blustering buffoon's stupid comment, something that we really should expect from him. The idea that Fox News is "out to get" Donald Trump is patently absurd, but some people I know who are otherwise quite sensible believe that's what is happening. 

Personally, I'm sick of hearing about Donald Trump. Just as so many did with Barack Obama, many are doing with Donald Trump - blinding themselves to the glaring actions in his past which should render him completely out of the race. In the past he has come out for single payer, supported Hillary Clinton, lobbied for amnesty, and at one time he claimed to be pro-life, but now supports "a woman's right to choose," in other words, pro-abortion. 

How anyone who calls themselves a conservative can support him is beyond me.


Republican front-runner Donald Trump continued to double down on Fox News star Megyn Kelly on Monday, saying that he is the one who deserves an apology from her — not the other way around — because of the question she threw him during last Thursday's GOP debate and the way she reacted to his answer.

"The fact is she asked me a very inappropriate question," Trump told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "She should be apologizing to me if you want to know the truth."
 
Awwww....let me get you a tissue.

***Obama alone bears the blame for the mess in the Middle East. Glenn Reynolds is right. "IN 2008, IRAQ WAS STABLE, SYRIA WAS STABLE, YEMEN WAS STABLE, LIBYA WAS STABLE."

The Perfect Friend
by Shannen Wrass

Today I found a friend
who knew everything I felt
she knew my weakness
and the problems I've been dealt.
She understood my wonders
and listened to my dreams,
she listened to how I felt about life and love
and knew what it all means.
Not once did she interrupt me
or tell me I was wrong
she understood what I was going through
and promised she'd stay long.
I reached out to this friend,
to show her that I care
to pull her close and let her know
how much I need her there.
I went to hold her hand
to pull her a bit nearer
and I realized this perfect friend I found
was nothing but a mirror.
 
***
well that doesn't look good
 
 

***Have a great day!
