The silly season in American politics

Posted by on Oct 22, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  We are just two weeks out from the 2014 mid-term elections. This is often considered the silly season in American politics. It is a time when more mud is flung than on a rainy day at Churchill Downs. It is a time when television ads for local car dealers and erectile dysfunction are squeezed out by desperate campaign ads suggesting that this or that candidate may or may not have absconded with the church cashbox designated as “Children’s Nursery Fund.” You may have noticed that none of the ads for Democratic candidates feature President...

Max Sennett’s Secret Service

Max Sennett’s Secret Service

Stop me if you’ve heard this one about the Secret Service before: A guy with a gun gets on an elevator with the president… The news has been filled with recent deeds, er, misdeeds of the Secret Service – you know, the agency entrusted with the job of protecting the President of the United States. That seems like kind of an important job. But lately the agency appears more reminiscent of the silent movies of Max Sennett’s Keystone Cops from nearly 100 years ago, except that we have yet to see it create a multi-car pileup involving a dozen...

ISIS strategy? We don’t need no stinkin’ strategy!

Posted by on Sep 2, 2014 in Current Events | 0 comments

Last week President Obama announced that he does not have a strategy for dealing with ISIS. It’s bad enough not to have a plan, it’s much worse to tell everybody that you don’t have one. Last week also brought us the start of the college football season. Suppose a head coach, knowing that the season was getting underway and had months to plan and prepare, said, “It’s our first game, but we don’t have a strategy yet. We might run some plays, but we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves. Besides, we haven’t actually practiced any of them yet....
