About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Here's How I See It Going Down...

Watched the latest Democrat debate last night. Hillary vs. Barack. Of course the "Talking Heads" have to parse every statement. Who looked "Presidential." Who scored the best on various issues. Blah. Blah. Blah.

But a thought occurred to me. There will either be a woman or a black man as the Democratic party nominee. That's a BIG change for a nation accustomed to old, white men running the show. But change comes ALWAYS incrementally. A matter of degrees.

It all became clear. The voters (Democratic voters) will go for what they feel most comfortable with. Forget Hillary's negatives. Forget Barack's style vs substance issues. Policy-wise there is very little difference. We will nominate Barack. Not because he's a black man. But because he's a MAN. It's the closest to our comfort zone.

Come November it will be man e mano. Then it will be a young dynamic man vs. an old guy who suddenly looks very tired.

So turn out the lights. Hillary's party is over.
