The Disappointing Presidential Final Round

This presidential campaign is like a fight between two drunks. Either candidate could be knocked out easily if the other had control of their faculties, unimpaired.

Both candidates make Barack Obama look superbly presidential on his worst day.  Is it just me or do not Vice Presidential candidates Mike Pence and Tim Kaine seem like the grownups in the room?

Keyleigh McEnany, Trump Spokesperson
The greatest display of cleverness in the entire campaign has been by surrogates trying to explain away the missteps or misstatements of their standard bearer.  

In Clinton's case, it's typically been a veteran staffer or former associate explaining what Hillary didn't know about the email process and when she didn't know it.  That's a hard sell considering the candidate gave the commencement speech at Wellesley College in 1969.

Trump's public relations people get an even more difficult assignment; spinning a simply uninformed statement into something semi-rational, resolving, unifying two or, even three, conflicting statements into a single coherent thought.  These guys and gals are earning their money.

Before school started, our little six year old grandson typically sat on a chair in the corner, playing Minecraft on his tablet while CNN blared in the background.  We assumed he wasn't listening to the news broadcast, until one day he blurted out:  "Donald Trump is just sooooo stupid!"

Nena was horrified:  "Jack, you have to make your own mind up on these things.  Did you hear grandma say something about this?"

"No, grandma.  He's just soooo stupid!"


  1. One big difference: "Donald Trump is just sooooo stupid!"

    1. Donald Trump is a God sent Gardian Angle that will make America Great Again. He is going to WIN and WIN BIG.

    2. "Gardian Angle"

      Why are Republicans sooooo illiterate?

  2. From the Mouths of Babes

  3. Wow poor child already indoctrinated to the "Dark Side" and he hasn't even started "screwool" (that's screwed in school for y'all low information dumbfu@ks dimbocRATS)
    He will eat his words cause TRUMP is out to save America from the socialistic/communistic democRATS have evolved too.
    Especially since the "Anglos" are severely being discriminated by the party of HATE democRATAS!!!!!

    1. Total comedy, my little partisan friend. My grandson Jack, at 6, is already smarter than u, despite being a 3/4 Anglo. He understands the Republican/Democrat bullshit better than you. He and other primarily Hispanic kids may save Brownsville, unless they get overrun by ur illiterate, racist offspring. Hopefully, reason will prevail.

    2. Jimmy boy you're teaching this innocent child to hate. This is child abuse the same as how islamist jihadist terrorist are indoctrinating children to HATE AND KILL. So so sad.

    3. To "Anonymous September 13, 2016 at 9:49 PM":

      You are nothing more than an Internet Troll" who has dropped the misspelled words but still hanging on to the "Caps Lock" keyboard key to emphasize your deep hatred for "Freedom of Speech" when you would rather destroy the messenger rather than the message.

      I lost friends in Vietnam defending your right to free speech and I will continue to defend any American's right to free speech.

      However, your attack comparing Mr. Barton and his grandson to Islamist Jihadist is really "beyond the pale".

      Senator Hillary Clinton was not my 1st choice for President of the United States but Donald Trump will never be President of the United States.

      Just turn your computer off, put away the bag of Cheetos and soda and get out of your parent's house.

    To the "Anonymous ReTHUGlican" who commented on September 11, 2016 @ 10:41 AM:

    Lip Read this... and Bite me & ...CLICK HERE..

    Come to the Dark Side.....we have _______.

  5. "Little Jack" makes more political sense (He, Trump, is soooooo stupid.) than some of these commenters with their atrocious spelling and false belief that if they comment in "ALL CAPS", they will sound more intelligent.

    When these so-called patriots shout "Make America Great Again", it is simply code words for this
