But this one is different. Allow me the rare opportunity of getting a little political here. Actually, apolitical....since I truly detest both sides of the aisle.
There has been nothing more foul and disgusting as the Presidential campaign we are currently mired in. This country is being asked to vote for two of the worst possible candidates available. I have very definite plans on what I will do come this November and I will share them at a later time.
But, for now, let me broach something else. Is it me or does this entire process in 2016 seem a little...well...fishy to you? I mean, the dialogue between the two candidates is insulting and childish. I guess that is to be expected. Hillary Clinton is a bitch on four wheels and has always done everything she can to advance the cause of...well...Hillary Clinton. Even by participating in this fraud of a marriage for years and please don't tell me otherwise. You know in your heart of hearts that there is no love in this union of convenience.
Yeah, we all know Hillary. But it's the other side that is even more scary. How did Donald Trump get this far? I have no clue. Sure, he appeals to a lot of folks who are fed up. But look at everything he has done in his campaign? Don Rickles-like insults. Grandiose demonstrations of stupidity and egotistical rants. I mean, if this is the way you go about running for President, he has made every wrong step in the book.
Is the guy that stupid?
Um, I don't think so. And that's why I can't believe what I am starting to think more and more on every passing day of this insulting display by two Presidential candidates who are not even worthy to clean my toilet bowl.
Trump is coming off like a sitcom character. Or a villain in an old cartoon. Wile E. Coyote with a bad hair do. Every word out of his mouth seems to have been written by a National Lampoon specialist. Indeed, his speeches are even funnier than any SNL sketch of a Trump speech.
It seems way too stilted.
Which is why I am starting to believe that this is all a set-up.
Okay, I am not a regular tin foil hat wearer. I don't subscribe to most conspiracy theories. Early on, I had some friends tell me that they thought Trump's candidacy was a device to split up the Republican party and allow Hillary to virtually slide into the Oval Office.
At the time, I scoffed. I told these people they had been watching too much West Wing. But, now, with each new calamity and malaprop, they may not be that crazy. Hey, go revisit "The Manchurian Candidate." The one with Frank Sinatra and not the one with that asshole Denzel Washington. Tell me if you see the same things I'm seeing.
I put nothing past the Clinton machine. They have covered up murders and scandals and embezzlement and health issues. I know for a fact from folks who live in upper Westchester that Bill's shenanigans have continued with frequent "violations of personal space."
So, orchestrating a puppet candidate to ensure victory? Maybe that tin foil cap might not look so bad on me.
Dinner last night: Had a big lunch so just a sandwich.
