President Biden will be giving a major speech tonight. Good. He has a “bully pulpit” and is in the enviable position of being able to avoid really effective rebuttal.
It will be next to impossible for Trump to respond. Who else in the Republican Party can do it when there are at least half a dozen who think they should be so designated?
Trump should already either be in jail, or out on bond, but he has to focus on major other matters. I do not think DeSantis, despite his huge war chest, is so far ahead of the pack that every other Republican will defer to him.
All or most all the Republican bets are still down on Trump. The situation is like betting millions on a team playing in the Super Bowl, and then, on the day of the game, the entire starting team you bet on gets sick and cannot play. The bet is already made, the game will be played, but the chances of winning the bet are slim and none.
Serena won again. Yeah!
Sarah Palin lost to a Democrat in Alaska. Yeah!
I believe they run again in November but a Democrat in that seat is, I believe, “a first”.
I have nothing to say about the Marlins.
The good news is no game tonight.
Trial lawyers know very well the principle, ”If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the facts are against you, argue the law. If both the law and the facts are against you, dazzle them with bullshit”.
The latter seems to be the approach taken last night by Trump’s lawyers who wrote as follows: “Simply put, the notion that Presidential records would contain sensitive information should have never been cause for alarm”.
Really? Trump’s lawyers failed to even try to rebut the points made by the D.O.J.
Cannon could still rule for Trump, but if she does, there will forever be an asterisk next to her name.
Charlie Crist is resigning his House seat. This resignation is bad news for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats.
The margin in the House grows smaller ———————————
Off to the doctor in a couple of hours to, hopefully, get Barbara’s cast reduced and then to my doctor to, hopefully, get some of my pills reduced—————————-
Go Ukraine and vote as if your life depended upon it.
