The real Howard Dean Scream!

One of the highlights thus far of the 2016 Democratic Convention was former Vermont governor, Howard Dean, recreating his infamous “scream” from the 2008 presidential campaign. I never knew he had such a terrific sense of humor!

Turns out the Hillary Clinton Quarterly has the audio file of the original, “real” scream, as well as a photo of the candidate as he ascended into a new political dimension.

If you haven’t heard this before, enjoy. That primal yelp at the end is priceless!


A beautiful piece of ass for Donald Trump.

What really matters to Donald Trump.

My grandfather The Barber used to subscribe to Esquire magazine for his shop. While my brothers were getting their buzz-cuts (so that Grandpa would have plenty of time to artly trim the locks of his namesake), I read the magazine, not quite sure if the nuns at St. Philip’s would have a problem with it. All I recall is that I DID read the articles and learned more than a 12-year old should know about being a man in the 1960s. I also learned something about great prose and what it looked like.

I still subscribe. Grandpa would be proud. Today in my email “The Esquire Classic Team,” whoever they are, reminded us of the many profiles and interviews they’ve done about Donald Trump.

At the top of their list was a circa 1980s profile by Harry Hurt III in which Trump says, “You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write [about you] as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”

I wonder how that would look on a Trump bumper sticker? I’d edit it down to “Trump, a beautiful piece of ass.” My version, I think, gives us the true essence of this narcissistic ego-maniac. He really means that he has a beautiful ass. I’m not one to judge, but perhaps the Log Cabin Republicans, who’ve been pretty much left out of Trump’s version of America, could weigh in on the issue?

Now we can have some fun!

Hippies for Hillary!The past few weeks I’ve taken a break from writing about Hillary and the campaigns. Sanders and most of his followers bored the hell out of me. Not much of what they had to say rose above the juvenile rants that I made during my own sordid activities as a McGovern supporter back in the early 70s.

Let me give credit where credit is due: Trump might be a psychopath, but he’s entertaining as hell. It is even more interesting to me that his most ardent far right supporters are also mentally ill. Many of them have come to this web site to vent their anger about that horrible woman, Hillary Clinton.

Vent away! I enjoy the comments. Whatever you do, don’t let facts get in the way of your opinion. The mud-slinging is far more entertaining when it derives primarily from your psychotic fantasies about liberal women taking over the country.
