Robby Mook is a charming young man, Paul Manafort creeps me out, Texit, Vexit

and a couple of other observations.

I did something I haven't done in months, if not longer: I skipped through the Sunday Morning yammering.

I watched Robby Mook on Fox. I'm familiar with him not just as Hillary's campaign manager but because he's a Vermonter who got his start here in Vermont. He was more polished than I recall. He isn't, I don't think, a TV natural, but he was articulate enough.

Paul Manafort? What is there to say? He's a long time republican operative with an ugly and shady past. Good fit for Donald. He got asked by Chuck Todd about Dr. James Dobson's comment this week about Donny being a baby Christian and reborn. He flat refused to answer.

Finally, Chuck Todd asked, if your state was planning to try and leave the U.S. (virtually impossible, I know, but this is kind of fun), what would you call it, using the British model of "brexit". Some Texans have already gone there with Texit. Vermont would be Vexit.

What would your state be dubbed?

Massachusetts could be massexit. Maine could be Mexit. There are too many North and South states for them all to be Nexit or Sexit...

6. I took you off ignore because I don't really like putting anyone on ignore

 

But do try reading. I said in the OP it's virtually impossible.

Reading before opining is always a good idea.

10. Works for me!

How are you planning to differentiate Alaska from Alabama. That's a tough one.

On edit - what about Alexit for Alaska and keep the "Ala" for Alabama?

12. Whoops! Alexit is so perfect for Alaska, both being 3 syllables!

Your predicament is a tough one.

13. Is there a synonym for Alaska that would work?

something that readily identifies and would be better?

on edit - I looked but couldn't find anything that would work.
