no mas

Hillary won? This is why I bailed on politics. Millions and millions of dollars spent on polling techniques, and they get it completely wrong. Politics is a child’s game. Reminds me of being at Shadowbrook Diary when I was 10 or 11 with my dad. I said, “I want this!” It was some ice-cream dish with the most wonderful description. My dad gently talked me out of it by pointing out other dishes, one of which I eventually got. Twenty-five or 30 years later I was at the same place. They had substantially the same menu. There was my dish! The one I wanted when I was with my dad! “Six heaping scoops of ice cream smothered in …” Oh. It was a local dish, came with a feed bag, a catheter, and free overnight parking. No wonder he talked me out of it.

Politics is nothing but putatively believable manipulation. Child’s game. I am done with children’s games.

Let Hillary and Obama fight the good fight. Let Hillary turn ugly (uglier). Next.
