Me-Again’s Show Debuts

After months of speculation, after months of hype, after months of waiting, Megyn Kelly’s new show debuted this morning on NBC – and I missed it.

I missed her summer interview shows, too. Looks like a lot of other people did, too, since it never got the ratings of 60 Minutes repeats. Here are the first few minutes of this morning’s show:

I’m intrigued by what people call her pussy pink top. Is she trying to connect with the pathetic liberal women who took to the streets in those colored hats to protest President Trump? Perhaps she thought it would get her kudos from her liberal masters at NBC.

Then there’s Melania Trump’s similar bow tie pink outfit she wore to one of the presidential debates.

I doubt Me-again was wearing it to connect with Melania; more like a slap in the face to her, I would suppose.

Right away, Me-again changes the topic from her show to who else – herself. She left out her first husband in her life story. Hmm, wonder why?

Kelly certainly poured gas on the scrap heap when she anchored debates during the presidential debates, didn’t she. Not exactly unifying.

Talk about working the crowd with her sob story!

She even gets an audience member to keep up talking about herself. Unbelievable.

Then her husband is brought on stage with red roses for her. She said it was a surprise. Uh huh.

Wonder if there was time for a show after she finished talking about herself? Probably came up in the interviews, too.

I think I’ve seen enough in the first few minutes to know it will be the Me-again show round the clock. Not wasting my time.

NFL – National Fools League

Since when does politics belong in football? Or in food series or recipes? Or in dance contests or kindergarten activities or movies or comedy or magazines or anything else besides politics?

Liberals have infected them all with angry, progressive, stupid thinking that doesn’t belong there.

When Trump called out the NFL players last night, or when he responded to the NBA Golden Warriors and rescinded their invitation to the White House, he was fighting for the majority of Americans. We’ve all been taking these slurs and derision for way too long.

So it was ironic that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote this:

Divisive? Respect for the NFL? Force for good? The players are the ones who started attacking American values by taking a knee and dividing us into camps. They are not respecting us, so they don’t earn or merit our respect. It’s a two way street.

As for football being a force for good, he might want to reconsider that one. The League itself has raised concerns about concussions and what the game does to players. It’s not good. Nor is the flashy lifestyle so many of them glory in that dupes other people into following their often crash and burn careers.

I would wager most Americans are tired of being insulted by sports players, chefs, actors, singers and the whole lot that uses their venue as a stage to throw shade on the rest of us.

They don’t seem to get it. Perhaps the only way they will is through their wallets.

Getting in the Game

I watched President Trump’s rally for Luther Strange last night. It was a very deft and persuasive speech.

Trump also spoke out about the ridiculous taking a knee that is now infecting NFL games and even children’s football. Here’s what he said.

He also suggested that when this happens, the audience ought to get up and leave the venue. That will help stop this quickly, because the NFL would not want the networks showing the exodus. Making it bad for business is the only way this leftist jerk and disrespectful crap will end.

DNC in the Dumps

The media always talks about how divided the GOP is. From the way they talk, you’d think the Republicans had lost the election, had little control of state legislatures and were the minority in Congress. None of it true. Surprise.

It is true that there are different factions in the GOP seemingly at war with one another. Look back at the past 50 years and see that it’s been that way for a long time. There were elected officials who fought Reagan, Bush and Bush 43. The first big legislation that W pushed, No Child Left Behind, had to scrape together votes before it passed. It was not a slam dunk.

That’s just how an organization that values individualism and freedom operates.

In truth, things are dire for the Dems. Their fund raising is in the toilet. The Washington Free Beacon reported:

he Democratic National Committee’s already dire financial standing worsened during the month of August, according to its Wednesday night filing to the FEC.

The DNC raised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as its spending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575.

And it gets worse. The DNC’s debt substantially increased from $3.4 million to $4.1 million, a figure equal to about 60 percent of the committee’s total cash on hand.

By contrast, the RNC raised $7.3 million in the month of August, giving them $45.8 million cash on hand. Neither do they have any debts, while the DNC owes more than $4 million.

They are bankrupt in candidates, too. There aren’t that many of them out there since the Obama years drained them of 1,200 offices nationwide. Most of the senior people are seniors – more than 70 years old like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Without lower ballot offices, the top tier is drying up.

They are bankrupt of ideas, too. Everything they preach sounds like it came from FDR’s playbook or Joseph Stalin’s. They have no strategy except to give things away and hope to attract voters doing that.

An internal DNC poll recently found that their main issues are not popular:

“Raising the minimum wage to $15 is as unpopular as it was when the Obama White House tried to make it Democrats’ rallying cry in the 2014 midterms. Participants in battleground-state focus groups said they see that rate as relatively high and the issue in general as being mostly about redistributing money to the poor. The DCCC memo urges candidates instead to talk about a ‘living wage,’ or to rail against outsourcing jobs.”

Then on free college tuition:

“The call for free college tuition fosters both resentment at ivory tower elitism and regret from people who have degrees but are now buried under debt. Many voters see ‘free’ as a lie — either they’ll end up paying for tuition some other way, or worse, they’ll be paying the tuition of someone else who’ll be getting a degree for free.

“Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and Gerstein Bocian Agne Strategies conducted online polling of 1,000 Democrats and 1,000 swing voters across 52 swing districts for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Their advice to candidates afterward: Drop the talk of free college.”

Whenever the media starts running down the GOP you know they are doing it because they understand the “threat” we bring to their hegemony.

Don’t listen. Look at facts instead.

What Happened to Hillary?

Ten months after the presidential election, I still enjoy Hillary’s (and the media’s) struggle to understand her loss. It has been a crushing blow to both of them and they haven’t gotten over it.

Neither have I. It’s still a lot of fun to watch.

Happily, Hillary keeps obliging. She can’t stop her whining. She was on CBS Sunday morning talking to Jane Pauley this weekend. Here’s the clip. It’s worth the 12-13 minute time investment.

Shouldn’t someone tell her she ought to stop trying to imitate German Chancellor Angela Merckel? What – were they separated at birth?

They even share a love of white wine, evidently.

In the interview with Pauley, Hillary likes quite a bit of it, judging from how her weird turtle like top looks about ready to pop its button.

Hillary has that weird eye thing going on again, too. The one where one pupil kind of wanders from being in sync with the other. We got plenty of that during the campaign, even though they tried to hide it.

Interesting, too, that the clips of Trump CBS chose to illustrate Hillary’s point, don’t. She talks of his white nationalist inaugural speech and they have him talking about carnage. As I recall that concerned how many black people are being killed in our streets, especially Chicago. He didn’t think it was a good thing.

Then the stalking incident at Wash U. It looked like two people on a stage, not stalking, not threatening.

Her quote about Trump saying that “he had no idea” being in the White House was “harder than he thought.” When did he say that? Seems unlikely.
How did you like the hubris of the Clintons buying a house on the property for her White House staff? Did you catch the picture of the White House on the wall? Maybe she thought staff would like to be reminded of her importance.

Hillary can go on living in her Chappaqua world. The rest of us opted out.
