Hi everybody

Ezra Klein at Vox has the perfect analysis of the Trump introduction speech of Pence. It captures totally my thoughts and its not a long article. MUST READ. Catches all the aspects of it. This was a train wreck even for a campaign we thought was a train wreck.

The Trump-Pence courtship:

Wayne Borean

Don't worry Tomi. If there's one thing I've learned from this campaign it is anything involving Trump can get worse.


I am pretty slow, I must admit, and probably the last one to get it. It only now occurs to me that the Republican Convention is organized as a reality show: The Trumps.

Given the huge successes of the Kardashians and Duck Dynasty, I must expect "The Trumps" to be a hugh success too. Maybe the can run a sequel show on the Trump network?

This link finally let me realize this:

The GOP's infomercial hopes to sell a likable Trump


It occurred to me that "The Trumps" could continue after Donald is elected as president. I think a reality show from the White House would be a huge hit.

I thought "The Office" would be a fabulous name for that reality show around PotUS Trump. But then I remembered that there already was a reality show called "The Office". However, The Trumps could benefit from the popularity of "The Office" if they called their show "The Oval Office". That would let everyone know their Office show is much more awesome than the original "The Office" show.


Great! Now they have T-pot and P-pot. And T-pot goes in to the P-pot.


"And T-pot goes in to the P-pot."

People noticed that the T-through-P logo of Trump Pence does suggest the logo of Aryan Nations (no link supplied here). Again, the Trump campaign people seem to be inspired by white supremacist groups.


Manafort said it two months ago:

Manafort: GOP convention will be 'ultimate reality show'

Maybe that is Putin's ultimate plan: Discredit democracy as a scripted pointless reality show. And Manafort is paid to implement it.


An Ohio's police union wants to suspend open carry during the RNC

I don't see the problem, if everyone carry their weapons there they will be secure. That's how it works right?

About Pence...

Helping Trump with women


T-pot and P-pot are already making waves ie. sinking. How on earth can women be so "stupid" that they do not realize that they are THE majority? Why do they give ANY support to these stupid white men with small
minds?? I would be ashamed to be a women who supports T- & P-pot. I would instead deny any sex from my husband if he votes for T-& P-pot combo.


Hillary should do something really cool and nominate the Johnson for the VP.
