Pre-election special?

A friend snapped this photo in Salida, CO. She's not at all sure what message is being conveyed, a 2nd Amendment issue or just a merchant cashing in on the paranoia. Either way, ick.

Dining dilemma

My republican brother is coming to town tomorrow, and they want us to meet up for dinner. There are several nice restaurants in proximity to their hotel, ranging from ethnic to seafood to steak; and they want me to make the reservations. So, which would you suggest: Tums? Rolaids? Mylanta?

A happy nasty surprise . . .

I'd been grumpy about a little medical issue that's requiring me to stay home and miss canvassing and phone banks. So I made about 50 of these last night, and this morning dropped them off with a group that had gathered to walk voted ballots to the drop boxes, a small march to commemorate the anniversary of the 19th Amendment. To my surprise and delight, our state legislator grabbed one and pinned it to his lapel, and within moments everyone was wearing them. The woman who'd taken delivery of the buttons was planning to hand them out at a candidate event this afternoon, but half of them were gone before we got to the parking lot. Now I've been asked to make some for our campaign offices.

Looks like I'm going to have a busy weekend after all!

That was quite a trick, Donald.

Don't think anyone expected to see him throw himself under the bus.

“Good evening, ma’am!” said the cheery young man when I answered the phone. “I’m calling from the Donald Trump campaign,” he continued, “and may I ask who you are planning to vote for?” Without hesitation I answered, “Hillary Clinton, of course.”

“Um, what?” he responded, clearly unprepared for my selection. “Really? I mean, um, can you tell me why you aren’t voting for Donald Trump?”

“Sure,” I said. “I prefer a President who has some knowledge of history, a basic understanding of foreign policy and the mechanics of international relations, and most of all, familiarity with our guiding principles as set forth in the Constitution. Other than that, I don’t want a President who abuses women, mocks the disabled, shames immigrants, disses veterans, fails to pay his debts, and sleazes his way out of paying taxes.”

“Oh,” he muttered, not quite as cheery as he had begun. “Well, uh, thanks for taking the time—”

“One more thing,” I said. “You might want to suggest to Mr. Putin that he be more careful in providing the data base from which you make your calling lists.”


“Dos vedanya,” I said. Click.
