In Sausalito overlooking S.F. Bay with my uncle, Lucky Strike nonfilters and a case of Bud. Those splendid days are long gone.

« The utter disgrace of the media's reaction to Trump's speeches | Main | Is Trump's people learning? »

PM, that reminds me of the first West Virginia joke I ever heard:

"How do you know that the tooth brush was invented in West Virginia? Because if it were invented any where else, it would be called a teeth brush."

Here I am in the C-8 capital of the world, about 3 miles from Dupont Washington Works WV, 20 years a WV resident.

Well if you heard the same speech I heard from Trump then you too might guess that his campaign finance problems just got quite a bit harder. He waxed eloquent on the subject of trade, so much so that he elicited condemnation from both the Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO. And you might wonder, as I do, just how receptive the business wing of the Republican party, that place from which most large donations spring, is going to like Trump unilaterally reversing thirty years of Republican policy just so he could steal some of Bernie's populist thunder.

Btw don't you just wonder what game changing VP selection is in the offing. My money would be on Chris Christie on the basis of the fact that the Donald is a true lover and connoisseur of fundament sniffing yes men. And Christie knows how to play fetch. Dare we hope he will outdo the fine choice that John McCain made?


My bet is Gingrich.


One of the two. Remember in '12 Mitt had Christie vetted and did not pass muster. I've thought Gingrich all along. We'll know soon!
