Great voting guidelines, Father Z. They are so much better than some other
guidelines I have read or heard so I I will add them to my own list. :- )
Well, it plays into the liberal’s idea of Donald Trump, that he’s not bright. But all indications are that is entirely not the case and he is quite intelligent. People mistake being glib with being brilliant and they are not the same.
I’m glad somebody did the Producers angle.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been thinking of that final-season storyline on Cheers where a bar bet that started with Frasier arguing that he could package any shlub with enough generalities to gain 15% in the polls eventually resulted in Woody being elected to Boston City Council!
While debating whether to try this, I wonder if Mel Brooks was (or had to be) consulted? (I can imagine him making fun of a wide range and variety of candidates, or at least ‘types’ – the president in Spaceballs comes to mind…)
I don’t know if you’re at all inclined to declare yourself publicly as to what ‘matters arising’ that you are following with interest, but it has struck me that there seem to be various thoughtful Catholic commentators attending to the question of Constitutional Presidential eligibility as “natural born citizen”, where various former, possible, and current candidates are concerned (including Catholic ones), and sometimes coming to quite a range of distinctly different conclusions. (This is not a matter which has escaped Mr. Trump’s notice, though I’m not clear about what, if anything, he is clear about in this area; I’ve also read that supporters of Mrs. Clinton had shown early and prominent interest in this area in the past.)
That made me laugh….I don’t like the “he is dumb” angle, but they definitely get points for sheer entertainment value.
