In this Era of Wild and Wooly Politics, there are NO More Political Mulligans for those who Fail, which is WHY Losers such as Mitt Romney, John McCain, and others need to go away!

WINTER SESSION 2015-16

BLOGPOST #1,934 AT THE AICP-END

What are we going to see by the middle of the month?
Oildale, CA, 03-08-2016 Tuesday: I wonder what we are going to see in the election races by the time we reach the middle of the month.  I know Super Tuesday was somewhat of a hodgepodge of election results as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz battled for the lion’s share of the delegates while ‘Little Marco’ (‘little’ seems applicable to the Floridian senator due to his actions) and John Kasich struggled to remain in the race. 
Meanwhile, on the other side of the massive political divide, Bernie Sanders has finally awoken and is out there trading blows with a ‘screeching’ Hillary Clinton.  I cannot imagine what it will be like after four to eight years of listening to that woman.
However, what I can say is that minimal moments in this election cycle are few and that the rest of the year is going to be ‘wild and wooly’ (as the old porn producers used to say of their grubby films in downtown Los Angeles back in the 1960s), because it is going be intense
Not only is this the Age of Anger, it is also the time of the ‘Wild and Wooly political dialogue’ in which candidates engage one another in a no-holds barred format.   What more could one ask?  It is both exciting and repellant all at the same time.
Here is what bothers ME:
What bothers me is the idea that the GOP mainstream seeks to wipe out Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.  I wonder if they have thrown in with the comedians on Saturday Night Live as this past Saturday night, they did EVERYTHING they could to tie Donald Trump with the Ku Klux Klan, White Power, and other bigoted, racist groups. 
Yet, at times, they have seemingly been on his side as he is ‘one of them’ being a New Yorker who has come on their show on quite a few occasions.  Now, that he seems to be on the verge of knocking the competition out of the running, they now want to tie him to hate groups and then to take him down and out of the race—what a double standard.   
Saturday Night Live does a marvelous job of lampooning politicians
The producers of Saturday Night Live have done a marvelous job at lampooning the GOP debates transforming figures such as Jeb, Chris Christie, and Dr. Ben Carson into humorous and laughable figures. 
What’s more, they also brought back Tina Fey a month or so ago to revive her Sarah Palin imitation when the former Alaskan governor came out and endorsed the billionaire, Trump. 
While their parodies and imitations are good, they connect with the young and the dumb who gather their news from Comedy Central, late-night TV, and from the front pages of dubious news magazines one finds stacked up in the checkout lines of grocery stores.  These people absorb the negativity into the sponges masquerading as their brains and then regurgitate it in the election booth or in their caucus—very nasty.   
We need to educate younger people
What I am saying is that it would be nice if we could educate the younger Americans as to the REAL problems we face in the United States and that most of the candidates on the GOP side could revive and save the nation if they win the election. 
Granted, schmutzes such as “Little Marco” Rubio, Jeb, and some of the other RINOS would continue the failed GOP policies of past Bush presidencies and past GOP failures such as Mitt Romney and John McCain. 
Why would Mitt think that people want to hear from him?  When you go down in flames, you are a wreck and in today’s world of mass media bombardment, candidates do not receive a Mulligan to make up for a failed campaign run as they once did prior to the mid-1970s.    
Let us go back in time to the 1970s
In 1976, former California Governor Ronald Reagan sought to primary sitting President Gerald R. Ford, the first non-elected president in American history, because Ford was not a conservative. 
It was a bitter, ugly fight but eventually, Ford prevailed and Reagan returned home to the Golden State.  However, in the November general election of that year, Governor Jimmy Carter of Georgia won the Democrat Party’s nomination for president and easily won the White House that fall. 
Ford was not a bad president but he replaced then-President Richard M. Nixon’s vice president, Spiro T. Agnew, and then when Nixon stepped down, became the president.  Unfortunately, for him he pardoned his predecessor for his role in the Watergate Scandal and it cost him his first election run.  
Attempting to primary a sitting president was not a ‘kiss of death’ for Governor Ronald Reagan as it would be now
One would think that Ronald Reagan’s attempt to undo a sitting president by launching a primary campaign against him and then fighting at the convention would have been the kiss of death for him. 
However, Carter was such a lackluster president, one cursed with a Middle Eastern oil embargo and American hostages held captive in Tehran for 444 days, Ronald Reagan was able to mount a strong comeback and did so with so much national enthusiasm that he toppled President Carter in 1980. 
Shortly after that, American hostages came home and the new president placed all sorts of restrictions and embargoes on the Iranians. 
Conversely, the United States rebounded from a deep recession with ever-increasing inflation and for the first time in more than 15 years or so, Americans felt good about their personal situations as well as the future of the nation. 
We had 12 great years of conservative rule, 8 of them under Ronald Reagan and then another four under his former vice president, George H.W. Bush until he lost his reelection bid in 1992 when Bill Clinton beat him.    
Nowadays, I do not believe anyone could recover from attempting to thwart the will of the voters
Nowadays, the chances of recovering from blown presidential campaigns is nigh impossible.  John McCain is a bigger putz than he was as the “Maverick” seeking to follow George W. Bush just as Mitt Romney, a man who had whooped President Obama in their first political debate in September 2012.  Following that first debate victory, the governor went on prevent-defense and LOST on Election Day. 
Other candidates who sought the Republican nomination repeatedly were men such as Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Newt Gingrich who never seemed to know when it was time to hang it up. 
This is WHY former Senator Rick Santorum could gain little to no traction having attempted to win the nomination twice.  Former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas had been on Fox News Channel for a lengthy period of time and came back yet again, and then had to withdraw because he, too, was from a bygone time. 
Every candidate must face the facts that 4-12 years of attempting to win the highest office of the land is a LIFETIME in the political geological strata of the nation.  People want something NEW, they cannot trade on PAST remembrances of good times or family ties to propel them forward into future campaigns as all we need do is to look at poor old Jeb—what a pathetic loser.  However, if a Democrat wins the White House in the fall, I will be you apples to oranges that we will see Jeb come BACK!     
Like it or not, time rushes by us
The sad thing is that time flies by at an ever increasing pace, something that dooms failed politicians whether they ‘like it or not.’ 
However, this time could be different in that if Trump wins the nomination and the GOP establishment attacks him and he loses the election in a BIG WAY, almost all of the others who competed this time and have either dropped out or could very soon will return in four years if Hillary Clinton wins. 
However, there should also be a moratorium on how many times someone can run because if Santorum, Huckabee, George Pataki, Lindsey Graham, and some of the others seek another run at the GOP nomination, we have to STOP them.  We must be able to put a finger to their foreheads, tell them “NO” in a firm way and then send them off to watch reruns of Matlock on TV with a bowl of soup and a shawl.   
Once a loser, always a loser, folks, that is how I see things.  What say you?  I welcome your comments.  Without interacting with you, we never know your opinions so please, be kind and share them with us as well as become a follower of our blog.

TUESDAY, MARCH 08, 2016
The album we have for you today is a sad one, an album that should have come out in the 1970s but did not see the light of day until 2008.  When Traffic imploded on tour in 1974, saxophonist/flautist Chris Wood commenced work on a solo album in between playing with other groups such as Ginger Baker’s Air ForceWood was very talented by his use of alcohol and drugs sometimes sidelined him, which eventually led to his death at age 39 in 1983.  “Vulcan” is an album of incomplete songs—mostly—musical ideas he put on tape while working with his former Traffic band mates on occasion.  This is a unique album if you want to get in on the ground floor and hear one-third of the component that made up the bulk of Traffic.  Please, seek this CD out at Amazon.com so you can check it out for yourselves, you will be glad you did.  We thank you for your support.

  1. We are living in some strange political times, times in which, we have ‘outsiders’ on both sides doing battle with mainstream components. I tend to like Donald Trump, I hope he does well but then again, I also enjoy watching Ted Cruz. Little Marco Rubio, on the other hand, is a pathetic idiot and I hope that what I hear from his advisors in Florida is to drop out PRIOR to the election coming up in seven days or so. I think if Rubio remains in the race—the big winner of Puerto Rico, mis amigos, hola, he will be washed up for good. The punk kid thinks he had a BIG chance at winning the White House so decided not to run for reelection. Hmmm, WRONG, Marco, WRONG. If you lose in your home state, you will disappear like a fart in a strong wind. Get out of the race so you can live to fight another day, you LOSER. / Posted by Chef V.
