When caught with a hand in the cookie jar

How will Donald Trump present himself in tomorrow night’s presidential town hall meeting?

A) Attempt to compare himself favorably with Bill Clinton, alleging worse comments to Hillary’s husband on the golf course?  It’s just what guys do when guys are alone, and Bill’s more lewd than I am.

B) Allege, as he has already, that Hillary has had a relationship/relationships outside of marriage? “Hillary is no angel!”

C) Apologize in the manner of the evangelical advisor, declaring that the event in 2005 was before he had a spiritual awakening, and that the issue now is forgiveness for a past indiscretion?

D) Make eyes for Moderator Martha Raddatz . . .  or Anderson Cooper?

E) Come out as a recovering sex addict?

F) None or some of the above? “None of the personal stuff matters. It’s about Making America Great Again! It’s about restoring America’s right to grope the world again. It’s about winning again. All the complainers and accusers are losers! They’re all pussies!”

The question now is not how big are his hands, but how big is his base?

I’m Sorry

Remember Love Story’s line: “Love means never having to say you’re sorry”?

It was mistaken then, and it’s mistaken now. Love often means saying your sorry. Repeatedly. It means some sadness. It means taking responsibility.

Watching and listening to Hillary Clinton over these last weeks and months leads me to another version of the Love Story line, created by the increasing perception of entitlement.

“Haughtiness means never having to say you’re sorry”… except when it becomes necessary to rescue one’s own ambitions. The smirk, the tilt of the head, the rolling of the eyes speak louder than “I’m sorry”.


Sorry (kinda/sorta) for being so political!
