Tuesday, August 29, 2017 – It’s all about that Base.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017 – It’s all about that Base.

I always wanted to be a United States presidential historian like Michael Beschloss, Douglass Brinkley or Doris Kerns Goodwin. I still can. I can just run four miles down Highway 6 to College Station and get another doctorate. But as we used to say in Austin, Onward Thru the Fog.

The POTUS and First Lady visit Texas today. He has scheduled visits to Corpus Christi and Austin. As you are aware, it’s all about that Base.

If you are a T Supporter, do not read any further. You will not like it. Click the exit square now.

I wonder if the POTUS is aware of the ethnic demographics of these two Texas cities.



Hell, even George W. Bush could speak enough Spanish to address these crowds. HWIT – I wouldn’t discuss the pardoning of Arapio in either city. Unless you discuss it in Spanish of course.

I understand the POTUS will visit the Department of Public Safety Emergency management center in Austin. HWIT – Is this due to your uniform fetish or just not time to visit the Wilhelmina Delco Center that shelters fellow Texans in all emergencies? https://www.austinchronicle.com/daily/news/2017-08-28/austin-shelters-brace-for-harveys-second-flood/ FYI – 500 sought shelter at Delco Center as of Sunday.

Here are some other questions I have. Is the POTUS going to pardon Harvey? I mean he said “there are good people on both sides,” even if one side is catastrophic.

Will the POTUS consider pardoning the Texas Rangers for bad sportsmanship? Go Astros! Can POTUS sign an Executive Order changing their name to Arlington, Rangers and remove TEXAS from their name?

Will POTUS be hawking his red USA hats for $40 or donating money to the resurrection of Houston? As I said, it’s all about that base.

From the best musical about Texas – Best Little Whorehouse in Texas – sing along. It’s really Trumpish!


Friday, July 29, 2016 – Snarky Friday. We, the People… and Dance a Little Side Step.

Friday, July 29, 2016 – Snarky Friday. We, the People… and Dance a Little Side Step.

We, the People of the United States of America… have spoken leaving the nation with a couple of ringtail tooters seeking the highest office – The President of the United States. We have the first woman to run on the ticket of a major party and the first man to run on the ticket of a major party that did not come up through the traditional political rank and file.

Did you know that the framers of the constitution actually disagreed and argued over those first three words of what became The Preamble to The United States Constitution – We, the People? The Southern delegation and others argued it should read “We, the States.” The Federalists (J. Madison, A. Hamilton, et. al.) countered with “the people are the states.”

I suppose We the People will watch this unfold in real time social media from now until November. Watching the news makes me want to wear a hazmat suit and realize being a hermit or recluse is not that bad.

The following song is from one of my favorite musicals, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. It is fitting and appropriate for both candidates. Here is the fabulous Charles Durning’s version of Sidestep from the movie,

“Cut a little swath and lead the people on!….

Enjoy and Happy Friday. God Bless Texas.

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 – BILL! Run for the Hills! The Floods Are Flashing!

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 – BILL! Run for the Hills! The Floods Are Flashing!

Bill is headed to Texas and he is not running for President of the United States. Let’s see, with Jeb Bush and soon to be announcing Donald Trump, how many candidates are running? Do the John Wax math.

I see where Chris Christi says he would “start World War III.” That’s certainly encouraging. As the great Tom Lehrer once sang in the 1960’s, “Watch World War III on pay TV.”

Here’s What I’m Thinking. What if all of the candidates who want to run the country do something like Dancing With the Stars, or World Wrestling Federation with mud and Jell-O?

People could email, text, or tweet their votes. If the DWTS model was used, each week we could vote a candidate out of the race. The last two candidates standing get to be POTUS and VPOTUS and face off in a Jazz Dance to All That Jazz from Chicago. (It’s a stretch, but it works describing D.C.) “ …it’s just a noisy hall, where’s there’s a nightly brawl…”

Better yet – a quick step from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas – “Oooh, I love to dance a little side step; now you see me; now you don’t …”

I am kinda rethinking the mud/Jell-O wrestling. I do not want to see any of those people in swim suit attire in high definition TV.

How about we put all of the candidates on an island and call it “Survival Reality Politics?” And put the island in Bill’s path. I would watch that on pay TV.
