It was painful to type that.
At the end of our excursion into total irrelevance yesterday, Grunt made a comment about sober horses. Before today’s foray into mind-numbing inanity here’s a true story:
We had a neighbor who lived up the road named Sonny, who had several horses. He and I would ride often, since his place backed up to a county park that was bordered by a creek. On a few occasions,we’d take a Saturday afternoon ride up the road to a tavern at the edge of town. We’d trade drinks for horseback rides around the parking lot. One time it got pretty drunk out before we headed home and Sonny slipped out of the saddle and down a gully. He claimed the damn horse threw him. The six-pack ring with three cans of beer missing around the pommel horn of his saddle contradicted his opinion. It was almost dark when we got to his place and his wife Karen was not the least bit amused. She didn’t care about us, but she was worried about the animals’ risk of getting hurt coming home. Quarter horses don’t come with headlights as standard equipment. They’d been married for quite some time and Sonny knew he was riding into the proverbial Valley of The Shadow. He feared no evil… except Karen. Needless to say, that was the end of our beer-for-horseback rides. Yes, it really happened.
This is Super Tuesday. Twelve states and one territory vote today. It should be the last hurrah for Ben Carson and John, John, the Mailman’s Son Kasich. Bernie will still be campaigning, but just for the publicity. He has virtually no chance whatever. Hillary treats the blacks as a nuisance to be tolerated and they still vote for her. I believe Cruz would have some chance of besting Trump one-on-one, but Rubio, the establishment stalking horse, is in it just to split the vote. Our primary here in Illinois is not until March 15, and by then everything will have been decided.
There was a news item, which I will link to, about Trump meeting along with other republican and democrats candidates and the New York Times editorial board. Part of the meeting was on the record, part was (supposedly) off the record. Trump allegedly made claims about his phony stance on illegal immigration to get the nomination. For a supposedly smart man, it is unfathomable that he would think everything would not end up being “leaked” by some unknown source. I have a feeling that after the general election season starts there are a lot of things that the democrats are keeping in their back pocket to harm what slight chance The Donald has of beating The Bitch. Two words….Mark Foley. The day AFTER the close of nominations they showed up with the suggestive e-mails he sent to a 16 year old House page. He disappeared the next day and hasn’t been seen or heard since. They have no qualms about playing dirty as long as they win.
