When Mick Mulvaney was shipped off to Ireland to be special envoy, after he got canned as Trump’s chief of staff, I made the remark, “There are plenty of dumb micks in Ireland. They don’t need the one named Mulvaney.” I now stand by that statement, amplified ten fold. Mulvaney did an interview on Irish television and he’s standing by the Biden-is-demented talking point. If you recall, that was dispensed with weeks ago because it lowers the bar for Biden’s performance. Maybe Mulvaney didn’t get the memo.

“Mr. Biden has more to lose from debating than he has to win, that if he does have a gaffe of some significant import during the debate, that by itself could ruin his presidential hopes and for that reason there will be tremendous pressure on him to just do that one debate.”

The bit about the election starts at 4:00. If you want to listen to Mulvaney blather about a wall between Northern Ireland and the Republic, help yourself. Believe me, listening to that, a lot of eyes were rolled and plugs pulled out of jugs. The envoy post went unfilled in the Trump administration until Trump decided to send Mulvaney somewhere. It was more competently manned when it was empty.

However, Mulvaney might be on to something about just the one debate. Even the broken clock is right twice a day.

I can’t decide which of Trump’s drug-induced personas I like the best, the ditzy used car salesman, or the slurred-speech, been awake for four days derelict. We’ll see which one shows up on stage tomorrow night.

This is my last transmission from the San Gabriel valley — unless Trump declares war on Iceland tonight, that could happen. My next post will be from the Mojave Desert.

There’s a lyric in this piece, “these new empires on old stones shall be my home.” For me that’s a metaphor for political rebirth and moving forward. Or, maybe Trump will nuke all the blue states, then this video will have literal meaning.

It’s a little too heavy metal for my tastes, but I still like its philosophy.

Will Rogers said, “In moving from Oklahoma to California I thereby raised the intelligence quotient of both states.”

In moving from California to Nevada I will alter the eccentricity ratio of both states.

Drive safe. Better late getting there than the alternatives. As for music, might I suggest a tune or two that might be appropriate? One (Changes in Latitudes Changes In Attitudes) regards change, and another (Fruitcakes) is just plain fun but full of pearls of wisdom and the title and opening monologue sure as hell seem appropriate for the times we are in.

I think it’ll be the slurred-speech, been awake for four days derelict. He can’t possibly have slept much after his taxes were made public. Wish they would go through with the drug testing.

It wasn’t slurred speech, but Mulvaney was also wrong. There was no gaffe. After the terrible performance, the person most likely to cancel the next debate is Trump. His base probably loved it, though.

“Tommy doesn’t know what day it is. He doesn’t know Jesus Christ, or what praying is. How can he be saved from the eternal grave?” Pete Townsend ( feel free to sub in any moron that fits the bill, u know like frump, his progeny, his stepford wife, his disgraced cabinet, etc.) At least Tommy could play the hell out of pinball.

Safe move, Ursula! And Mick Mulvaney might want to apply for asylum in Ireland, assuming my distant relations want to put with his arrogant ass.

Ursula cites The Outer Worlds…now I think I’ve seen everything in this election, lol.

I’ve been playing that game off and on through my Xbox this year. It’s actually a brilliant satire, combining Flash Gordon/Buck Rogers style pulp sci-fi with a merciless lampooning of corporate culture in a space frontier where the latter has taken over colonization. It is very much a game for our times.

I am a political junkie and forgot mulvaney was one of trumps dish rags until I read this piece. Without checking google, how many trump dish rags (chiefs of staff) can you name? How many have there been? I guess mulvaney got a soft landing in ireland.

Ambassadorship, actually. I’m surprised Ireland hasn’t become one unified island as a result yet, between that and Boris Johnson’s continuing eff up of Brexit. And there’s been three or four chiefs of staff for Trump, the only two of which I can remember are John Kelly and Reince Priebus.

Um, NOT “ambassadorship.” He’s a “special envoy” to Northern Ireland. This was the position originally created by Bill Clinton for the esteemed George Mitchell to oversee the peace process in Northern Ireland back in the day. Mitchell was largely responsible for the current treaty that resulted in the Good Friday Agreement. During Obama’s 2008 campaign, he suggested the position might no longer be necessary but John McCain used this against Obama (as proof that Obama wasn’t a skilled enough negotiator or involved enough with international diplomacy). The post was actually vacant during most of this current “administration” (former Senator Gary… Read more »

**Glower** Ambassador in all but name, Joseph, even with the limits involved.

Strangely the US Consulate in Belfast dates back to George Washington who appointed the first Consul General. It’s the second oldest US consulate in the world

Another disgrace to real believers. John 8:42-47. Jesus is arguing with the hypocritical self righteous Jewish religious leaders, who basically said he couldn’t talk to them the way he was because they were the decendents of Abraham. He pointed out their ancestors killed the prophets & they did not have Abraham’s faith. He called them children of the devil, who was a murderer & liar. Jesus called him the Father of all lies, & because they followed him, they had no possibility of understanding his teachings. Let’s see… Mr meadows…frump has lied constantly about everything all his life, & over… Read more »

Biden can gaffe till the cows come home and he still will be miles ahead of an impeached, traitor and tax-dodger.

They now want a check of ears, because they think Joe is going to have an earphone to feed him all the answers.

Ahh but you all miss the real point. Trump wants Mulvaneous Mick to wreck the Good Friday Agreement because that stemmed from Clinton and the Democratus party

Which, coupled with the UK’s current troubles, means a unified Ireland in the end.

It is too bad English does not have a word like the Chinese 祂。It means divine third person pronoun. No gender implication whatsoever.
