    • How Peace In Ukraine Has Been Made Almost Impossible
      To make peace either one side has to be unable to fight any more, or both sides must want to make peace. One problem in Ukraine is that both sides (and I don’t mean Ukraine and Russia, but Ukraine/NATO v. Russia) have put themselves into a trap where the leaders of various countries can’t afford to lose the war, because they will lose power. Support for Ukra […]

Clinton Cocktail Party- Fools Rush In

woman-with-cocktail-glass-and-rose-is611-019.jpgOk, all you brave and fearless Clinton bloggers, stand down for awhile. We are the ones keeping our heads when all around are losing theirs, we run interference for the underdog, we’re exhausted.

The frenzy and fury stirred up by the other guy is reaching a degree sufficient to push it over into the realm of absurdity. If you act like a diva once too often, people start to notice. And we rush in when the heat starts to blister to douse the screamers with ice cold reality. Well, someone’s gotta do it.

But we need a break. So, kick back and relax. Welcome to the Clinton Cocktail Party. Everybody is welcome. Say hellow to Rico at the bar to the left of the door. He’s got flair! Tonight his feature drink is Blue Angel #2, for all you angels out there. But you can order anything you like.

Tonight’s pianist is new to me. Oh, I’ve probably got Bill Evans somewhere on my iPod but I’ve never heard him do this version of My Foolish Heart. It’s just the thing:

We’ve gotten a lot more visitors from the other campaign here lately and we’re happy to see them checking us out. Let’s hope they’ll find us a friendly and forgiving crowd. Even so, everyone’s been a little trigger happy around here lately so please feel free to check your trigger words with Florence, our lovely check room attendant.

The waiter will be circulating soon with smoked salmon, herbed bean dip and crudities and a number of other munchables. Please drink responsibly and tip your wait staff generously.

And now, I’d like to solicit suggestions for taking the Clinton Cocktail Hour live to Harrisburg, PA in the lead up to the primary. Should we stream it live? Go to a bar? Commandeer my sister’s house and throw one there?

Don’t read this if you are relaxed and having fun.
