So Many Bright Shiny Objects!

Frank Luntz is among them.

In an interview with POLITICO, Luntz said Trump — and Democratic presidential insurgent Bernie Sanders — are “delivering a big ‘f—- you’ to the elites in America.
“And that resonates on both sides,” Luntz said. “But ‘f—- you’ doesn’t solve anything. ‘F—- you’ doesn’t make life any better. ‘F—- you’ makes you feel good, but it doesn’t get you where you need to go. ‘F—- you’ doesn’t make America strong. ‘F—- you’ doesn’t solve anything.”
Trump responded by accusing Luntz of harboring a long-held vendetta because Trump refused to do business with Luntz’s polling firm.

What’s interesting is that their assessments of each other seem to be right on the mark. Where they do wrong is in mis-understanding themselves. Still think the “clown car” is the wrong vehicle. Merry-go-round is more like it.

Trump, the Power-luster

Does the Donald want to be POTUS ’cause he’s got a potency problem? One has reason to wonder when he accuses Senator Sanders of being weak.
Some people have questioned why Trump has declared himself bankrupt four times. Aside from bankruptcy having become a standard corporate strategy for discarding mistakes at someone else’s expense, there’s more certainty in engineering failure, especially if one arranges it oneself. Sort of like the clown’s pratfall, don’t you know? Or the “cannonball” — someone who’s afraid to dive in head-first making a big splash.

No, Mr. President, I am not a masochist.

Barack Obama wants us to watch the Republican Merry-go-Round. No way. Even if I had a TV, I wouldn’t give up my beauty sleep to watch a bunch of stupids blather for an hour. Or, however long the Republicans have bought themselves a bit of limelight on Thursday night.
I just wish I could find the right Merry-go-Round to populate with the 17 candidates waiting to be trounced.

Island Briefs

These tidbits from the morning paper perfectly capture the ethos of the islands.

A man was arrested for breaking into a bar in the 1800 block of Norwich Street and a liquor store on U.S. 17 in the same night. Police caught the burglary suspect after he tripped a security alarm at the liquor store and noticed that he was also the person caught on video breaking into the bar earlier that night.


A man was shot in the hand while fending off an armed robber who approached him as he walked on O Street. The robbers gun went off and struck the victims hand when the victim reached for the weapon. The robber then ran off.

Christie in Wolfeboro, NH

Christie_Encounters_Michael_BloomerRed is not a good color for Chris Christie. It does not make him look like Little Red Ridinghood in Wolfeboro. Blue signs don’t make him more appealing to Democrats either. And his pole holders, apparently hired, look tired. At least he didn’t hire pole dancers.
